I have had gential herpes since I was 16 and I am 43 now, so I know all about it. When someone first gives it to you there is a period of incubation where nothing happens, the virus is establishing itself inside you. Then, after about 4-6 weeks I think it is, you get the first outbreak on your genitals or anus or wherever it entered into you, the outbreak is severe, painful and it takes more than a week for the blisters to dry and heal. If you had contracted herpes from that girl, you would surely know about it by now. You said you haven't had an outbreak, so you are definitely fine. No doubt about that.

As far as hiv goes, you can be totally sure after 3 months, it's sort of the same thing with hiv as it is with herpes, it takes time to incubate in your bloodstream before it shows up. After 3 months it shows up for sure, so after 6 months it will definitely show up. Go and get a test asap because with your OCD you will continually obsess over it. I suffer a little bit of OCD though not a lot, and found that when I started taking Prozac my symptoms went away. After doing some reading about it, I found that the SSRI -type antidepressants are often used to help with OCD, are you on any medication for your OCD?

I'm like fake fruit...... I don't bruise that easy.
