[Question #6949] Hsv1 Gential

11 months ago
So here is my question, I have genital hsv1 I had some rough sex wenesday night and it was super rough. A condom was used. But then next morning I was still sore.... I'm not sure if my libia was irradiated from the rough sex or if I was having an outbreak! N then thursday morning he went down on me orally while i was sleep? It was looking red so I put coconut oil and it feels way better wenesday night had some bleeding right after we finished having sex! My main concern is what's the chance of him getting this orally? He says he doesnt have anything, if so how soon will symptoms appear?

Symptoms of new HSV 1 infection would likely show up within 2-10 days, with the average being 5.5 days. 
But honestly, it sounds to me like you are sore and bleeding from rough sex.  How long have you had HSV 1?  After you've had it for at least 2 years, you are only shedding virus on about 4 days out of the year.  Let me know what other questions, you may have, OK?

oh, so you are well past the time when the shedding rates are higher, at the beginning of a new infection.  I'm glad things are resolving for you.  Great news!
