Hi 5-7 days gonorhea, 6 weeks syphilis. But this is very low risk. I was in a similar situation with you. You only need testing if you feel symptoms. But otherwise no need for testing, this is a mistake you can walk away from.
Thanks. I should mention the woman was basically a sex worker (they all are here at clubs). I've read that it's low risk. I just don't want a stupid decision like this to negatively affect my partner.
Also...should I be worried at all about herpes, hpv, HIV?
Actually hsv1 can be transmitted to the genital area during oral sex. If you contracted it, you will have symptoms within 2 weeks of the encounter.
if you have a regular partner at home, I'd cover your bases with chlamydia and gonorrhea testing 1 week post encounter. should you develop any discharge or obvious sores after that, be sure to be seen. The risk of contracting syphilis from oral sex is rather low. If this woman didn't use a condom for you, odds are she never uses a condom for oral sex which makes it well worth following up on the testing if you have a regular partner.
Please follow the advice of gracefromhhp as she actually has the credentials. She is in a much better position to give you advice.
Thanks Grace. Just a couple more questions.
1) Since it would be HSV-1, would I definitely get symptoms? In a test, even though it would be on my genitals, would it still show up as HSV-1?
2) If I don't show symptoms for chlamydia and gonorrhea after a week, can I wait 4 weeks to get a test? That's when I'll be near my doc.
Here's hoping I dodged a bullet. Three days in and no symptoms. Is oral sex generally low risk for transmission?
1) Post in the herpes forum please
Thanks Vance. Posted herpes question in herpes forum.
if you were negative for hsv1 prior to this and contracted hsv1 genitally from oral sex, you would have a very "classic" and obvious ob.
Yes, it's ok to wait a month to test if that's more convenient. Should you develop painful urination or discharge though, be seen before then.
Thanks so much. No issues so far but it's early. Is the risk of contracting low?
the risk is rather low but it's worth testing since you have a regular partner.
Just to follow up, I'm two weeks post exposure. No symptoms at all. Should I expect negative results when I test in two weeks?
Sorry. 3 weeks post exposure.
Tested at 5 weeks. Negative for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HSV-2, and Syphilis. I can move on from this now right?
