    I had sex with a lady last night that had sex with a person with herpes. Does this mean I have the disease? I also realize that like 70% of people have it and never get outbreaks or something like that. I then was wondering for the future does a condom stop all STD's? I remember reading somewhere that some stds get through the latex and it is only thick enough to stop seamen.

    70% of people have a strain of oral herpes, but its usually not considered the same type of herpes as genital herpes, so you gotta be careful and get tested to find out which kind she had....

    Of course there is. Wait about 3 weeks and go get tested. They swab the area to test for it. Generally, the person has to be having an outbreak to pass it on. However, you can have it with no symptoms.

    No one here can tell you or help you with this, however, so go see a doctor. However, in my experience, most shit is very hard to catch.

    Google it up and you will find tons of resources.

    Thanks poco. It seems I'm probably in the clean, but I'll be safe and watch my genital for the next 3 weeks. I'll also try to check her vaginal regen before intercoruse maybe. I feel I'm probably safe, so I'll wait 3 weeks and see if anything happens.

    Thanks.

    My take on that is to (1) ask if she's clean and (2) use a condom if you are unsure.

    Herpes is one of those un-curable diseases that you REALLY want to take care not to catch. Just be a little smarter than the average male and you can ensure your life-long health. It''s important, and I'd rather risk offending a woman and not getting laid than catching shit like herpes.

    Herpes and HPV are the two that always scared me.

    Reason being that a condom does not always prevent them.
    Herpes is spread by skin to skin contact. Which means, if your balls touch her labia or other parts of her genetalia, it can be spread.
    It is less of a chance, but the way it is transmitted always scared me.
    Another reason why I never went down on anyone that I didn't know well enough to know that she didn't have it.

    HPV really isn't that big of a deal if you're a dude, if you're a chick its slightly more of a big deal but the only chicks who get cervical cancer from it are ones who don't get regular pap smears. Also, something like 2/3 of "college aged" people have been exposed to HPV and you can be a carrier of HPV but never have an outbreak. If you do have an outbreak most of the time your body will take care of the virus by itself but if you want they can freeze them off (OUCH!) and you can get a cream which is a localized immune system booster.

    Actually :slap: you would have to have a BREAK OUT for swab test.

    But a blood test is actually out now.

    Are you trying to say that you will not get cervical cancer if you get regular pap smears? :squint:

    HPV IS a big deal and should be treated as such.

    No, but if you are getting regular pap smears it can be caught and treated before it becomes an major issue.

    My point being that both can be spread BY SKIN CONTACT and both CAN NOT BE CURED. That is the reason they scared me so much.

    True, my doc told me that of all the STDs HPV is really more of a nuisance then a real problem the last time after I got tested after a drunken hookup. I Thought had I had caught something bad, turns out it was just a bad case of jock itch (athletes foot that got transferred up).
