Like many people I had bad judgement. I am a guy and I had protected vaginal sex with a female stripper.
It was missionary, not vigorous and the condom did not break.
This was 8 full days ago. I have no symptoms except some genital itching/irritation but it may be due to I am thinking about it a lot and I check every little tingle.
I am going to get tested but, in the meantime, My questions are:
Do you think I passed the time Herpes would show up? I have read so many different time frames when sores could show up from initial infection.
What is the chance I could have contracted Herpes or anything else?
What other STD's should I REALLY be worried about?
What signs I should be looking for?
Luckily I am single so this will only affect me. Thank you.
A one time intercourse with a condom presents little risk for acquiring herpes, honestly. I can't tell you it is zero, but I can tell you it is statistically very unlikely. The average time from infection to first symptoms is 5.5 days with the range being about 1-10 days. So you're getting htere.
If you test, I would do it now as a baseline value. You could have had herpes before and didn't know it. If you only test later, you will never know if you got herpes at this encounter or had it before and didn't know it.
