Herpes Odds?
had brief unprotected sex with a woman (i am guy) 8 days ago. have zero symptoms so far ... my skin at my waist (just below belly button) is a tiny tiny bit itchy and looks a tiny tiny bit red ... but this may just be i my head and perfectly normal.

i am going to get the full STD panel of tests ... but just curious to know odds of catching genital herpes if by chance the woman did have it (i have no reason to believe she does, but i do not know her at all and she is a stripper).

how soon after can i test for this? no symptoms = probably didn't get anything, right? (i realize not 100%, but most likely no, right?)

you can get tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea now. You'll need to wait at least 6 weeks for syphilis testing , 3 months for hiv testing and 4 months for herpes testing.

Anything that you describe as a tiny bit itchy, probably is nothing.
