the likelyhood is very very low.
u used condom, beside u did not sleep with a hooker or massage parlor girl. or guy. u are fine, most general population rarely have such std.
HSV 1 on gential, rare and no big deal, who care...I promise it will not come back, now HSV 2 , I that sucks. Dont worry about HSV 1. 99% of the population has it.
Get check for Syphills, CMV, HSV 6,8, Genital Wart, Immune System, CBC.
And relax, u dont have HIV. I bet my life
I just keep replaying the day I will walk into the doctor's office for my test results and he/she will say "YOU TESTED POSITIVE". My boyfriend reassured me I had nothing the first time I got tested (for genital herpes) and I was freaking out. Then once I had calmed down and went in for my results, the result of the swab was positive for HSV-1 (even though when the doctor looked at it she said it "didn't look at all like herpes, just a rash). Lucky me, I guess, I must have caught a weak strain, or whatever... right? But then... can I be reallly that sure I don't have HIV - as sure as I was made to blieve that I didn't have herpes?
1) HSV-1 typically affects the mouth area, not the genital area, like HSV-2 does. So my immune system must have been weak to have contracted it in an area of the body outside of its site of preference in the first place?
2) And what about the promiscuous girl - should I be worried since I know for a fact she has had unprotected sex with all of the guys she's slept with (I know of 5 she's slept with and I've never even met her) ?
I don't really believe that God necessarily exists, yet the past few days I have been bargaining with God over my test results, promising to become a born-again virgin or at least use condoms every time. and I keep caluclating my risks, symptoms, and the chances that someone as relatively careful as me, could have HIV. --> I've been reading about HIV since I was about 10, and Majored in health, so maybe i'm paranoid because I know more than I should about every disease there is... I dunno. Am I?
How ironic would it be if the next international HIV rights activist and lawyer, ends up becoming HIV infected herself?
also as a side note, someone shoot me. no one will listen to what I have to say if I end up being HIV positive.
I think you're making a big deal over nothing to be honest. Most my friends have slept with over 20 girls each, one or two are well over a 100 girls. Theyve had every std under the sun but never HIV or Hep... HIV isnt exactly rife in the white upper middle class.
I'm not white :) hehe. I look pretty white, but somehow I'm middle eastern. go figure. anyway, i get what you're saying. However, when I told my mother about my concerns last night, her reaction was:
1) "don't worry, you don't have HIV - I can tell by just looking at you"
2) "i know people who have HIV"... how is it that she knows people (plural) who have HIV - we're middle class... and "if you have HIV, we'll just get you some meds"
her response was just too quick and sure, and it seemed to make light of a positive HIV diagnosis... kinda like "it wont be that bad anyway, get over it"
If you're in western Europe you can worry even less....
