I recently found out that my roommate had sex 2 or 3 times with his girlfriend in my bed and did not wash the linens afterward. I know for a fact that his girlfriend has hsv-2 genital. Likely the same days my own girlfriend and I had sex in my same bed. Were we at kind of risk for HSV-2 since they had intercourse in the same sheets we did and within the same time period?
No, I don't believe you are any kind of risk. The virus will die very quickly when off the human body. The virus needs to live at body temperature and sheets don't provide that. Also, if there were secretions on your bed, they are more likely, in any volume, to be semen, not vaginal secretions. Hopefully a condom was used. So in summary, this has a fairly high yuck factor but not a risk.
