two days and symptoms?

well im an idiot. i know the risks and the statistics involved but i had a one night stand anyways. saturday night i had sex with a girl i know from school. it was protected vaginal and i recieved unprotected oral. i had sex back in december with her too. its not even been 2 days and i noticed two small little bumps on my face, kind of near my lips. they itch a little. im not sure if im being paranoid or not. but i read that 1 in 4 girls have genital herpes. so now i have it my head that i MUST have it.

my question is, can i have symptoms in 2 days? and although girls have a 1 in 4 chances of having it, what is the rate/probability of transmission? thanks.

Re: two days and symptoms?

The statistics are lower than 1 in 4. If this is someone you know from school - at your age the figures are lower than 1 in 10 I believe for having type 2 herpes which causes the vast majority of genital herpes.

If it is on your face it is a lot more likely to be type 1, though, which is pretty common (anything between 40 to 80% of people have it).

Yes, you can have symptoms within 2 days. I have read people here say otherwise, but yes you can, I did and other people I know did.
