I had sex with someone who has herpes


Recommended Posts

I had sex with someone with herpes a few days ago. She said she hadn’t had an out break in a year and takes meds. I wore a condom but, I have been a nervous wreck since that night. I don’t know what to expect and what to do. No symptoms of anything yet.

@Skman Well first off my friend, let me start off by saying I'm sorry you found yourself in this position. I know that feeling all too well.

Secondly, breathe. Your chances of being infected with herpes is extremely low. Even without her taking medication or you wearing the condom, your chances of becoming infected when she is not currently experiencing an outbreak is low, between 4-5%. With her taking meds and the condom, your chances are like below 1%.

Your mind right now is your biggest enemy. Use google to educate yourself, but at the same time.... STAY OFF GOOGLE. You will do nothing but cause yourself more anxiety. Just relax. It'll be okay.
