Anxiety and tired of worrying!
This is my first time posting here but I've read quite a few threads. I'm more or less writing this for my own good but would appreciate any feedback. I know no one here can diagnose me but if you have any suggestions or thoughts please share.
6 nights ago now I was extremely intoxicated and had sex with a girl who first told me she had been tested positive for Herpes. At the time I was too drunk to care and slapped a condom on and went for it. It wasn't until the morning that I woke up, realized what I had done and started researching it. I now know a condom does pretty much nothing to minimize your chance of catching this virus. The best thing I have going for me is that she said she hasn't had an outbreak in 10 years. I slept naked next to her and there were times I'm sure I was rubbing against her. There isn't much more to the story. She was only my second partner as I'm just coming off a marriage.
Needless to say I'm writing this because everyday, morning, noon and night I'm worrying and can't stop thinking if I have contracted the virus. It's literally killing me and my mind seems to be cReating symptoms. I have no visual symptoms yet but I keep feel a tingling or slight need to itch my testicles every now and then. I'm hoping its just the stress, but I'm totally freaked out.
I have an appointment with my doctor in 5 days but that seems like an eternity. I just can't imagine waiting months for a blood test. I think I might request to have one every two weeks from now for at least 4 months.
With no outbreak, wearing a condom and only have sex once with this girl are my chances of getting herpes pretty small? Thanks for reading and for any comments. God Bless you all
