Should I Worry?

Hey,

I am a hsv1 positive male and I recently found out that an ex (female) had tested positive for hsv2 appx. 2 weeks ago (12/12/12). Me and my ex had protected vaginal sex in mid-october and unprotected oral sex (I was the receiver) on 11/4/2012. With that being said, should I worry about the transmission of our protected vaginal sex? Or the oral sex since it was unprotected? Should I even test at all? I know that female to male transmission rate with condom usage is extremely low. I would like to move on with my life with my current gf who is completely aware of my hsv1.

no real reason to test from the encounter in question.

has your new partner been tested for herpes to know her own status?

*Correction - We had sex mid-Sept protected vaginally, no sex in october, unprotected vaginal sex performed on me on 11/4 and no sex december. So essentially no need to worry right?
