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.
