A guy gave me oral and we shared a kiss
Dermatologist: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago
Ok. So most people will have symptoms about one to two weeks after exposure with lesions or blisters.

If you tested negative 4 times in a month then I would say almost no chance you contracted herpes from that encounter.Does that help answer your question?

Sore throat at 9 weeks Post-exposure would not be a sign of herpes

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
