Herpes from fingering? Please help!

Recommended Posts

cutieballs

My boyfriend has oral and genital herpes (type 2). We have never had sex, only kissing, and we were making out tonight. Well, while we were making out he got, um... excited, and reached into his pants to adjust himself. He did not wash his hands after doing this. About five to fifteen minutes later he stuck his hands down my pants and tried to finger me. I couldn't BELIEVE he would do that. I told him to stop and demanded he go into the bathroom and wash his hands immediately!

He never touched the inside of my vagina, but he did touch the skin around it and the outside of my butt near the crack.

Is it possible that he could have been having an outbreak, reached down, touched the outbreak and then passed it on to me?

And if he wasn't having an outbreak, is it possible that he could have been shedding the virus from his genitals, touched it and then passed it on to me?

I am livid! I tried to find the answers online but none of them seemed definite. Please help! :(

More than likely not, the virus outside the body only lives for a few seconds, if it was 15 min the changes of him passing it to your lower tummy or you butt is slim. You should have just told him no rather that yell at him though, i wouldn't be suppressed if hes more reserved for a few days.

however you acted putting your self first and there is nothing wrong with that.

I agree. Where do you see this relationship going if you are that scared of it?

      ANd eight hours is on a surface...on a towel who knows. The eight hours was a quote off a thread a long time ago of worst case senerio. Obviously it doesnt survive double touching unless its some weird arse almost immediate thing off a shedding site and this is all WORST case scenerio. HSV shouldnt be treated with stigma...but for everyones well being it should be treated as carefully as poss. It is a highly contagious condition and can be difficult to diagnose and GP's will let you walk away thinking you are clear when you are not if you do not do your due diligence.    

      I knew more about it than the specialists at the hospital I was refereed to. 

      Thanks.

      I have seen your advise on a few threads and to be honest while I am over careful at times you are not careful enough. This can absolutely happen and people should be well aware of the fact to prevent it from happening. I supposedly have good immunity on labs too. You just cant tell who will pick it up. It can live on surfaces for up to eight hours and towels that are wet and warm and that make micro abrasions when rubbed on skin are ways that transmission that can occur. You will often find out more by spending many hours reading on threads than your doctors. SO no it doesn't always just involve a cut on the skin. How do you think people get it else where.

      So please DO NOT swear at me as this is a possibility and this person should careful tick all his bases before ruling it out, cos on the rare case it is I wouldnt want his life totally ruined. Cos if it gets everywhere your life kinda is.

      It's called caring.
