Hi ynotony,

Sorry, there is no morning after pill for herpes and if you were having an outbreak at the time you had sex, the chances she contracted it are a lot better than if you didn't have an outbreak.

I hope she dodged a bullet but if she starts getting any blisters, sores, yeasty type infections, cuts or major itching in the genitals, she should get to the doctor or clinic within 24-48 of any symptoms appearing and have a viral culture done. This would be the quickest way to find out, if the virus is still on the surface at the time of testing. If the virus is not on the surface , she could get a false negative and will have to have a blood test done.

The most reliable time for accurate results is between 12-16 weeks from possible exposure. Some people will test positive as early as 3 weeks but that is not the norm.

I hope everything turns out OK and that she never gets classics symptoms. Good luck you two.

      yea I am on them.  Been taking them for about 8 months now.  I reckon they're good for general well being too, cause I am not as tired as I used to be and I didn't get the flu this year.  My blisters stopped after about the third month, but I really don't know if I am still positive or not, cbf doing a blood test and I am not dating so I don't mind not knowing for now.  But I am happy to stay on them for a while.

      "We predict that transmission is unlikely at viral loads less than 104 HSV DNA copies" https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4006256/ The above quote suggests that transmission can take place with 10,000 copies (104).

      See this article.  I would say that it is Herpes.   I have burning mouth syndrome and have to take a lot of antivirals.  Was valtrex then famicyclovir, then acyclovir.  https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.livescience.com/50455-burning-mouth-syndrome-herpes.html

      Sorry to tell you, but I have the same thing.  Probably HSV 1.  It was not as bad as before, but when I kissed certain people it would get worse.  The last person I dated had HSV 1 and now I have it as burning mouth syndrome.  So here is the article.  I get tingles everywhere if I get saliva on me no matter where you kiss me.  So trigeminal area and my skin.  When the I guess initial outbreak was happening, I was getting fever and skin irritations everywhere.  Now I try to be careful not to kiss my partner  anywhere or touch my eyes etc, I do not need to spread it anywhere. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.livescience.com/50455-burning-mouth-syndrome-herpes.html
