What are the chances
      #169772 - 01/13/06 05:57 PM

It's been at least 13 years since I've had unprotected sex with a man other than my husband. I am now pregnant...and have been tested but won't know the results for a while. They only call you with results if anything is wrong...otherwise it'll be 1 1/2 weeks until my appointment where they go over the results of all my blood work. I've always been worried in the back of my mind but have of course been to scared to test. I do have Herpes and that worries me too that maybe I could have something else. Anyway I just wondered if it can lie dormant for over 13 years with NO symptoms what so ever?

As I don't know the answer to that, i won't answer your direct question...what I will tell you is that the chances are very slim that you are infected and don't know after 13 years. The odds are absolutely in your favor. I will, however, pray for you and your new expected bundle! Once you get your NEG you can move forward with your joyous new event. HUgs and Prayers.

If you had blood tests done when you got married that also includes a STD screening.
