[Question #393] Gential herpes

34 months ago
PLEASE PLEASE help me understand something. I was involved with a female that has hsv 2, but I didn't know neither did she. I never kissed her or had sex with her. There was several occasions were we had dry sex or dry humping. She was completely naked but I NEVER took my pants off and she wasn't having a outbreak neither did she ever have one. So I took a igg type specific test at around 7 or 8 weeks after possible exposure and my results came back negative. They say the proper time is 3 months but they assured me I was fine at this point. I'm going crazy thinking about it and I'm feeling all kinds of pain and weird things down there and it's been on and off for the past 6 months. Again I never had sex, oral, anal or even kissed this girl so in other words I never had gential to gential contact and my test were negative can I put this past me.

If you never took your pants off, you have no risk.  Period.  No risk.  There has to be direct skin to skin contact for herpes transmission to occur.  So the good news is that whether she had an outbreak of not, there is no risk to you.
Any other questions for me?
