[Question #3785] Massage Parlor encounter and worried

35 months ago
Hello Dr,
                      I am female 41 years old.  21 days ago I had full body massage.   In the end,  he glided his penis on my vagina for less than 2 minutes.  No vigerous rubbing or grinding.  He used a lots of coconut oil.  He had no lesions or cuts any where on his body including genitals. No intercourse.   I have not had any symptoms since 21 past this encounter.  Very scared about STI's.   Do i need to test for anything?  Very worried particularly about hsv2.   Please guide.
Thanks

I do not believe that you need to test for anything, no. If you have had no symptoms, this contact sounds quite safe.  Obviously, if you develop any symptoms, you should have them evaluated, but it doesn't sound like you do so no, no testing needed at this time.

Hello ,
  Thank you for the response.  Even though I have to say it was my first and last mistake of doing such thing.   My partner of 16 yrs been feeling itching on and off around scroutum area with no lesions of any type in this area. When we have sex , we do a lots of grinding and rubbing  of genitalias and my husband is very hairy down there. Could the itching be due to him being hairy and vigorous rubbing? I have read almost every post relating to similar situations here and on medhelp.   Now it’s been a exactly a month, we both saw no symptoms of any sort. My main fear is hsv2.  Should my husband get any type of testing or is it just anxiety and fear mixed up together?   
Thank you for all the help.

Is your partner of 16 years your husband?  You used both terms here so I just want to be certain that I understand. 
It is not necessary, in my opinion,for either you or your husband to be tested for anything given your very very brief sexual encounter and no penetration. 
Itching in the area of the scrotum is so common! Do you ever watch baseball on TV?    they are always scratching their scrotum!  I think you are just noticing it more due to your experience,don't you?

Good Morning,
    Thanks again for easing my tensions.  Yes he is my husband of 16 years and we are in monogamous relationship. I totally agree with you that anxiety and guilt probabaly making me observe all these menial/common things very closely.  I feel much better after reading your responses.  I have last question which I been wandering about.  I have hsv1 in my left eye since childhood.  Six months ago I had a flare up  of virus in the left eye and I have been taking acyclovir twice a day for past six months per my ophthalmologist orders.  Do you think,  it can pass to other parts of body or to my husband or my children ? Thank you for all your help!!  You are awesome!

No, I do not think you will pass it on to other parts of your body but remember that the herpes virus in your eye is there because it is living in the nerve that supplies your face so you could experience outbreaks on the lip or in the nose and those would not be there in those locations because you move the virus around but rather because it is simply traveling along a branch of the nerve that it has not traveled on in the past. I am very glad that you are on daily therapy for your eye infection and hope you will continue to stay on this medicine. There is no risk to your husband or children from an eye infection but if you develop a cold sore on the mouth, you should avoid kissing your husband and children on their mouth when the cold sore is present.
