Welcome to our Forum. Your overall risk for acquisition of any STI from a single encounter in which you rece9ived unprotected oral sex is quite low and now, with no symptoms after 6 weeks and negative tests is close to zero.
Regarding your questions:
1. Herpes: I read that with an IGG at 6 weeks 70% of people test positive if they are infected. My mother told me I
had coldsores in preschool and I cant recall ever having any in my teenage years. Shouldnt I have
tested positive for HSV-1? With no symptoms and negative Igg at six weeks should I be ok to resume
sex with my wife?
The combination of a negative IgG and the absence of symptoms at this time makes it most unlikely that you got HSV from the encounter you describe. Childhood lesions identified as cold sores may have been something else or perhaps you were infected and the antibodies were not detected-you may never know but either way, at this time there really is no reason to worry about having acquired HSV and no reeason to abstain from sex with your wife.
2. HPV: How big of a risk am I of contracting HPV? I read thats its rare but I also read it was 5%. Ive read that its
not a big deal but I feel that it would be in my situation. Im only worried
because my wife and I gave our virginity to each other, so if she gets HPV then my mistake is out in the
There is controversy about the likelihood of getting HPV from receipt of oral sex and to be honest, no one really knows. An estimate of 5% however is far too high. I attach a link to an earlier reply regarding this topic from Dr. Handsfield which, while not answering your question, does provide a bit more information about the topic. http://www.medhelp.org/posts/STDs/HPV-and-oral-sex/show/1515473
Both your question above and your earlier interactions with Terri indicate that you remain quite worried about possible infections related to this encounter. Please try not to be, the risk of any STI at this time is very, very low. EWH
