could i have herpes?


Recommended Posts

ok so i recently shared an alchoholic beverage, a couple actually, i just had a sip of each, from this girl who offered it to me, Ive only met her a few times and i dont really know her and her background but theres rumors that shes sexually active. I wasnt even thinking about how she might have herpes until my gf flipped out when i told her i had a sip. I had kissed my girlfriend twice after i had the drink, so if i were to have herpes is it possible to spread it from getting it on the first day?

so my main questions are:

is my chance at having herpes high?


is it possible to spread herpes in one day from getting it?

it depends, do you even know if the girl has herpes?

being sexualy active doesnt mean shes 100% to have herpes.

then you have to figure out if she even has oral herpes, or genital herpes.

if she has oral, and was having a active outbreak and you had shared drinks, then yes theres a high risk of possibly getting herpes that way, and also spreading it to your gf by kissing her.

but if you dont really know anything about the girl and are just assuming, UNLESS you are experience, some symptoms...

either way- wait a few weeks, and go get tested if that will help clear your mind, or just ask the girl if she has oral herpes...

thats such an impossible question.

its high is she has an active coldsore on her face.

otherwise not really no. - a very low chance -even if she has oral herpies.

just because she been having sex doesnt mean shes got herpies.

yeah I know but i hear shes kinda slutty, so it made me worry, i didn't see any sores on her mouth at the time.. but make up can do wonders..

It is dangerous to make assumptions and then to ask perfect strangers if statistically you could now be infected with a virus.

The likelyhood of you getting herpes from her drink is just the same as you getting it from sharing a lemonade with your grandmother.

Most people get oral hsv infections while they are children from innocent family members who don't know that cold sores are a contagious virus.

solid snake

have you been blood tested lately? has your girlfriend.

odds are on that one of u already have it.

dont say u havent had one so u havent, as alot of peeps who have HSV never have an outbreak.

No i have not been blood tested yet, I was planning on waiting until i see an outbreak, wait about 2 weeks or so and if I don't have one then i would suspect i don't have herpes but its possible that people don't have outbreaks while they have herpes?

Many people can have herpes for years and never experience an outbreak.

I hope you don't assume that because you didn't have an ob that you are hsv free. You really need to be tested to be sure.

My first outbreak came over a year and a half after first being exposed to the virus.

Good Luck!

If the only way you think you could have contracted it is from a drink I think that is highly unlikely.

Now if your girlfriend has oral cold sores and you've been kissing that would be a likely source.

Oh man you said that word.


better duck your head on the way out. :-D

or we can just wait for him to come back bitching about how we didnt know.

""Caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1), cold sores are highly contagious and should be avoided. Never kiss anyone with a cold sore and avoid sharing utensils, drinks or even washcloths, towels and napkins. Sun exposure has also been linked to outbreaks.""

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
