The chance of infection would have been 1 in 5000, maybe even less likely... and that is if she even had genital HSV2.
You did not contract herpes from this episode; you really are fine.
Do you have any statistics on what the overall risk would be? If it were somehow contracted, how likely would it be to pass on?
Thanks I definitely didn't have blistering. I'll put my mind at ease for now unless other symptoms arise, I know the transmission under the circumstances of the encounter is very low risk.
They would certainly make themselves noticed. They are annoying, both numbish with concentrated tingling at times that would itch especially as it healed from the blistering phase.
What exactly do you mean by lesion symptoms? What exactly do the lesions look like? Would they be painful?
Maybe the infection you have is related to the oral sex, it may not! Remember for all sexually active adults its easy to point to a sexual encounter that happened a few days before some illness arose, isn't it!
Your doctor is right, it could be any virus that your body is fighting and probably is. No need to suspect it is HSV in the absence of lesion symptoms.
Thank you. I was just concerned with the timing of everything. My mouth was just sore in general with slightly swollen and sore gums, but didn't notice any spots or lesions on the gums or any other part of my mouth besides the throat area. The doctor said that swollen gums may be caused my any viral infection as the body fights off the infection. It sounds like I have no reason to be concerned?
99% plus chance this is a general infection of the throat.
Why? Probably she doesn't have genital herpes. If she did, then it would most likely be HSV2 and that does not latch on well to the oral area. If it did, then the point of entry would more likely be the lips where the symptoms would arise.
No need to be thinking herpes regarding the exposure or symptoms.
