Consumed with worry/concern 24/7

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am 70 years old with H1....my lady friend is roughly the same age with H1 and H2..both recently tested ...no suppressive drug therapy...she swears that she never had a genital outbreak....well, about 16 days ago...add some poor judgement and alcohol....and we ended up having unprotected sex...both oral/genital...I have had no signs or symptoms for the past 16 days since the initial exposure...but I must wait between 4 and 6 weeks before I can get tested for H2....in the meantime, it is all consuming...on my mind 24/7...can’t shake it...am I correct in assuming that I have a 4 % chance of getting H2 ?  Or is it higher?  Thanking u in advance for your time...

Hello, and yes, from the sources I’ve read with those circumstances (no Rx & no protection) the risk is around 4%, given that there was no asymptomatic shedding. Also, female to male has lower transmission rates, if that calms your nerves some (assuming you are male).

One more question, would I have symptoms after 16 days if I am positive for H2 ?

It’s possible, but the timeframe isn’t definite. It could be weeks or months before anything physically shows up. Just make sure to keep an eye out for anything that looks/feels off.
