I am writing on here because I don't know who else to turn to. I have started uni this year and had sex with 1 guy which is the biggest regret of my life, I don't need people judging me I just need some advice. I am now terrified that I have caught an STD from him, especially something incurable like herpes. It was unprotected which I know was stupid, and I really didn't want to do it and I felt disgusting after. I told him I was worried I could've caught something from him and he said not to be because he used condoms with everyone else he's slept with except me.
I can get over it if I have got something curable but I am so scared that I've caught herpes. I feel like I have a UTI although I can't see any sores or anything, and I've had this feeling for a few days now. There is an area of redness near the opening of my vagina (sorry if TMI) which isn't painful, and seems to be a similar area of redness on the other side. I have been examining myself obsessively. I was so scared to make an appointment but I finally have, it has been about 2 weeks since the incident.
Does anyone know how likely it is that i couldn't caught herpes from one encounter? Supposing he had it and didn't realise. I am so scared I don't know what to do I feel like I can't leave my room i just keep crying and looking up my symptoms and convincing myself I have every STD under the sun.

Hooray for making the appointment. They will be able to tell you, which is good because we can't.
We can say that if you did just catch genital herpes, you would probably be going 'ow' a lot.

Just get yourself down to that appointment, there's no shame in it and your doing absolutely the right thing
