Symptoms for me: Nothing until 3 weeks ago. I had some burning whenever I urinated. My doctor said I had bacteria in my urine and I got anti-biotics, and I took them for a week, and now I feel a lot better. The past 3-4 days, I have experienced a little clear discharge about once a day. But, I haven't had sex, or masturbated in 3 weeks, which is very uncommon for me. Don't know if this has anything to do with fears.
I am worried about getting HSV-1 Genital. I am just paranoid.
I realize it can be transmitted even with no cold sores. I realize most people with HSV-1 Genital have no symptoms.
With all that said, how would you rate my chances of getting it under the circumstances?
It's the "just one time" statistic. While it is possible, we do see more transmission with discordant couples over time, with more exposures, just the accumulation of experiences makes it more likely that transmission will occur. But I have seen people get herpes with a single encounter, yes.
I'm sorry, but once again, I have no statistics on this.
