Help?! :(

Hello,
I'm hoping someone can help me with this.
Two nights ago I hooked up with a guy, we didn't have sex but we were both naked, his penis brushed against my vagina a couple of times but I wouldn't consider it grinding or any sort.
I'm just really concerned about contracting something with the contact I described!
Any advice helps!
Thank you

Are you having any symptoms? I don't want to scare you, but herpes can be contracted through skin to skin contact. Viral shedding happens in the "boxer brief" region of the body and doesn't have to actually have any kind of penetration to contract the virus. But if you aren't having any kind of symptoms, I wouldn't worry.

I'm not having any symptoms and as far I know I'm the only one he's been seeing for the past couple of months but I just don't trust him as much.

This is a half truth. No one is going to get hsv from brief contact like she describes. Hsv is not a super contagious infection. Yes it needs skin contact but intact skin needs friction as well. That's why the vast majority of infections are on the penis shaft, vagina opening and the rectum. Areas of thin skin and most friction.
She had a no risk event.
