Hi guys. Yesterday, I had sexual intercourse with a woman who's sex history is unknown. Protection was used for vaginal and oral sex. However, at the end she took the condom off and tried to give more oral - this last about 10 seconds.
Now I am so paranoid that I can't stop worrying and it's affecting me to the point where I can't eat. She had no sores present (from what I could see) but I know that you can still transmit hsv-1 without symptoms present.
Hi and welcome. Unprotected oral sex is low risk for contracting std's and with a 10 second exposure reduces the risk pretty much to zero. Really not an issue. Regards to testing, maybe test if you have a long term partner just to eliminate the low risk factor out of the equation.
Thanks for your quick reply. May I ask why 10 seconds of exposure would differ to say.. 5 minutes of exposure?
Also, do you have any advice how I can calm myself down a bit? I just keep convincing myself that I'm going to get Herpes / Warts from this slight exposure. I don't think researching online is really helping (just makes me feel more anxious)
And even though I wore a condom I'm a bit worried some parts of my penis were not covered.. I shouldn't get myself into these situations when I suffer with anxiety / ocd :(
Well std like gono and chlamydia tend to lie in the back of the throat in the mucus membrans so short exposure would reduce the risk for these. There are risks for protected vaginal sex but to be at greater risk there needs to be some rubbing and grinding naked body to naked body esp the genital areas. Since your worried maybe test to reduce your anxiety.
