advice needed

i have genital herpes. i have had it for almost a year and have only had one outbreak in the beginning probably due to my strong immune system. recently i went out with some friends and got entirely too drunk to the point where i don't remember half of the night. basically i woke up in someone's bed and found out that we had sex. obviously i am extremely worried and stressed out by this situation because i don't want anything to happen to her. i didn't have any signs of an outbreak or anything but she said we didn't use protection. part of me wants to tell her because it is the right thing to do but i also don't want to freak her out. any advice would be appreciated.

Re: advice needed

The best thing you can do is be honest with her. Although you are not having an outbreak the risk of transmission is still there. The only thing she will be able to do is just get tested in 4 months if she doesn't develop any signs or symptoms to see if she has it or not.
