I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend one night, the next afternoon I had unprotected sex with basically a stranger. That night I got a fever of 102.5 and in the morning I had what I thought was yeast. Went to the dr got three diflucan pills didn't help went back by now I had sores, was swabbed and came back positive for herpes. Started on Valtrex, ect.
Question is - could i have gotten it from the stranger and have the symptoms show up so fast? I know I could have gotten it years ago but I'm just curious if this is a possibility. Thank you.
He said he's been tested and had nothing but the girl he went and got tested with tested positive for hsv1 but I'll never really know as he lies...I wasn't told if it was 1 or 2 just that it wAs positive. I read on another post that you wrote that you never, ever, ever need to treat an outbreak. Can you explain?
