Q: Condom Broke: Do I have herpes?
A: Dunno yet


Learn more about herpes here.

Dear GTG,

Ugh. I'm sure this is not what you really want to wake up too, but I need someone to comfort me/ inform me of my options right now...

Well... this is totally out of character for me, but last night I had some casual sex. I went off the pill a few months ago and I wasn't really planning on having sex too often so a condom in theory would have been enough. Well, just my luck the condom broke. I managed to get the morning after pill on a sunday in VERY conservative Lubbock, so I gave myself a pat on the back for that. But I'm still really freaked out by the chance of STI's/STD's. I know you have to wait awhile for HIV to show up on a test, but how long does it take for other STI's to show up? Would it be stupid to set up a doctors appt on monday?

thanks for being there for me. jesus. I'm freakin out.

Dear Patti,

That sucks, but don't freak out yet. If you have contracted any bacterial stuff (chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis) tests should be positive fairly soon after exposure, like 12-14 days, but the viral stuff (hpv, herpes, hiv) can take longer to show up on tests. Keep your spidey sense turned on for any symptoms (be on the lookout for sores) but don't freak out. Gonorrhea and chlamydia are curable, and herpes often doesn't even have symptoms. HIV is scary but the risk of contracting it from a single sexual encounter is low. So don't panic.

I would make an appointment for about a month from now and try not to freak out until then. If you were using a condom for some of the time you were having sex, that reduces the risk somewhat.

To get tested in Lubbock, go to the city health department STD clinic--you can find info about their office and other places in town to get tested here. They may tell you to come back in another few months for follow up testing, but they're the experts so see what they tell you.

Let me know how it goes.

I was suffering from herpes Oral probably almost 6 months. They prescribed me several antiviral drugs but it could not see any improvement. I would basically go an outbreak to another. Finally, on the recommendation of my best friend, I decided to try the herbal remedy of rescue in liquid form with natural root and herbs from Dr Molemen. Within a few weeks, I could see improvements in symptoms. The ulcers began to heal and now were less painful. I have been using this medication since then and now new outbreaks have completely stopped. I recommend to my other friends out there who are suffering from herpes to try this medication.
contact: drmolemenspiritualtemple@gmail.com or (dr.molemenspiritualtemple@yahoo.com) or call him on + 2347036013351 if you want to buy his medicine for any problem or health challenge... You are the best Mr Molemen.
