So, I had a recent encounter with a partner whom I did not know his status. I told him I wanted us to be tested before going any further than kissing and fingering… he was a little bit pushy with me and his penis ended up touching my pantyline. Not a brief touch, but a rough grinding I would say.
Anyhow, two days later I’m having some burning and tingling feelings down there, but urination feels fine. No sores yet. I’m super stressed and worried that I have herpes now.
A week prior to this incident I started taking Acyclovir 800mg 2x a day to avoid getting a cold sore before we were going to hang out together. Well, I’m glad because I did a little research and seems it could potentially be a sort of prophylactic to prevent a primary HSV outbreak. I found some studies on rats and also a study on a wrestling team using antivirals prophylactically.
What are your thoughts on this? Since I’m having symptoms, which may or may not be HSV, should I continue taking the pills for a couple more weeks just in case?
On a side note, I’m going to see an OBgyn ASAP to be swabbed as well.
Thank you for your help!
