What you describe is definitely not hsv. The virus simply does not act that way. Your symptoms have lasted way to long. I do get the sense you have a lot of anxiety over this and are very aware of every sensation and my guess is thats all it is.
Your bumps are not hsv either. They would have run their course from red bump to fluid filled blisters in a few days. Two weeks and they would be healed. The spot your pumps are on would not be the area you would've contracted the virus.

Even your unprotected encounter was very low risk. If he did have hsv 2 your chances are 1 in a 1000.
Hope this helps.

Thank you and also today i started to have a raised area under my lip line it has yet to form any blister or pimple like cluster its just hard im guessing i will know more about it tomorrow or the day after i am really thankful for you answering my post and i will continue to update with my symptoms and test results when i receive them. Im just really nervous and today is the first time this has happenend to me the spot on my lip line it hasnt gone away in about 5 hours im sure its probly hsv 1 but idk and i also forgot to mention that after intercourse with the protected guy with the sore. Hey took the condom off and masterbated didnt get near me but i noticed like two bumps on his penial shaft it didnt look like they were on a red base when i think about it but i didnt get a good enough look at it

I really wouldn't worry about the protected sex at all. Condoms work very well and anything that was covered by the condom is a non issue. The virus does shed in areas not covered by a condom but it is rare to contract hsv in those aeeas. The skin of the genitals is very thin and is a much easier pathway for the virus. The pubic area has much thicker skin and does not see the type of friction that the penis shaft or vagina opening does.
As far as the lip line issue. Just keep an eye on it. I personally get a pimple in that area so at this point try not to stress to hard. Remember, somewhere around 70% of adults have oral hsv1 so never coming into contact with it at some point isn't realistic.
Please keep me posted on how your doing.

Well its been three days since the area on my lip was there and nothing else happened but i have tried everything and the tingling still persists also i have had three cracks on my lips since this started about seven weeks which i didnt think was related but after i googled somethings i saw that cracked lips is a mild hsv type of outbreak but why is it taking so long to heal if i do have hsv1 i know i got it recently from the guy i kissed i just hope that i didnt spread it to my vaginal area due to the fact i pleasure myself using my own syliva i have a doctors appt for sat hopefully they can tell me what is going on i pray its not hsv but im passed the denial anger and regret stages now i just want the tingling to stop and move on with my life this has literally driven me crazy ive been stressed to the max crying and in fear for my vhildren and future realationships all because of a night i really could have gone without idk ill update with my results after saturday and again thank you for everything

Oral hsv 1 is a very common thing and nothing you should feel that bad about. That being said I still doubt thats what is going on. Your Dr should be able to sort this out. Seven weeks is way to long to have herpes symptoms.
Good luck with your appointment and let me know how it goes.

I would ask for a print out. If the results are negative then no need for further questions.  If not then we can cross that bridge at that time. Just come back with your results and we can hash it all out

I got my results back this morning they came back negative at 9 weeks but it was a blood pcr test im not very confident about it but i really want to believe it...how accurate is the pcr test and should i retest at 12 weeks

I wouldn't retest if it was me. At 9 weeks 90+% would be positive by now. You can retest but I highly doubt it will change.
