Hi doctor, This is to clear some of my doubts about genital herpes. A week ago, I had sex with a guy, who was my school mate when I was in high school. His ex-girlfriend told me that he has got genital herpes. So, while having sex, I haven't allowed him to have penetrative sex. So, he did oral sex which lasted for about 5-6 minutes. I made to stop him once in 5 minutes and washed there, and repeated this for about 5 times. I did so, to reduce risk of getting affected with herpes through oral sex. Will it help me so? Is there a chance that I can get affected with herpes this way? However, I haven’t seen any sores or something unusual in his genitals. Thanks for your reply.
