recently i was with a woman on several occassions we were fooling around no unprotected sex though. we were grinding on eachother with clothes on and on another occassion with boxers and panties on then one day i wound up laying on top of her buttocks skin to skin humping her for a few seconds. i kissed on her buttocks several times and she performed oral on me for about 5 seconds if that, she stopped and did it again then stopped then i just pushed her off me.at no time did i come into contact with her vaginal area. and that was because we were taken precaution of not having unprotected intercourse. however recently i was with her and things got intense and i wound up putting a condom on and entering her from the back in the doggy style position, but she pulled away because she said i was to hugh for her. anyway i just took off the condom and ceased all attempts and just left...at the moment we were waiting for her results because we were in talks about building a relationship and she got her results back yesterday and she tested positive for hsv 2. i know i took a risk and i just need some advice on this matter what are my chances of me contracting it. i read that in most cases people symptoms occurre within the first 2 to 20 days upon contracting the hsv 2. its been over a month from the first episode and now its been a week since the last incident. i been constantly checking myself down there looking for anything. i understand that a small portion of people dont have any symptoms when contracting hsv 2 and thats why i will get tested in a month. but can someone please give me some advice, if i fall in the bunch of people who get symptoms upon exposure and i dont have any out break within that time period i know its not 100%, but is it a good sign that more than likely that im ok. im still getting tested even though so i can have a sense of relief...please some one respond asap. whats the difference between type 1&2 i know 1 is orally and 2 is genital. can ittransmit it by performing oral sex if she's was type 2. she said that she never experienced any sores or pain on her buttocks nor thighs. and today her dr. said that she has been exposed to the herpes virus but don't have the actual virus itself. how is that when i seen that the interpretation was positive for hsv 2??? please someone help me...
