    I hooked up with a guy who has been with many prostitutes.

    He touched me everywhere, including down there but didn't finger me. We didn't have sex. I touched him down there for a short while, but that not much.

    Because he's been with loads of prostitutes, I'm paranoid I have an STI.

    We did a lot of kissing and touching, and apart from him touching me down there. That's it. I'm hurting down there even though he didn't finger me, and I don't know if this is normal.

    I'm a virgin btw. Can someone help me please?

    Specifically, herpes can be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact, but typically only where mucous membranes or cuts in the skin are present. Is it possible? Yes. Is it probable? no.

    If you're worried, then it could simply be the stress causing an upset abdomen.

    If you're truly worried, simply visit your GP for a test.

    I see what you mean, what about the pain down there? Is that related to anything?

    How long ago was the interaction vs when the pain started? Stress can cause immediate and lasting pains, whereas infection and viruses usually aren't immediate. Is it vaginal pain or abdomen pain? If vaginal, then best to consult your GP as you could simply have an easily treatable -- and common -- UTI. If abdominal, then it could simply be the stress you're placing on yourself.

    Honestly though, if you're truly worried about your physical health, your GP will be a best bet. He/She will not judge you based on what occurred; instead, they are in the profession to help. Trust them.

    Does that make sense?

    I got with the guy a couple of days ago, and ever since I've had pain, but it went but now it's back?

    I've had a UTI before so I don't feel it's that, it's pain on the outside of my vagina...

    Thank you for the response. I am really worried and I don't know who to talk to about this. So thank you.

    What were his fingernails like? Have you had a look to see if you've been scratched or whether there's any obvious sore bits?

    It sounds like it's time to see your GP/practice nurse or a sexual health clinic. The combination of the levels of STIs for sex workers being lower than you would expect because of the very high levels of condom use and what you've done makes an STI unlikely, but something's clearly not right.

    His fingernails were short, and it doesn't look like there's any sore parts. However I do feel very sore down there. I'm honestly so worried.

    Something isn't right I agree, I want to see someone but everyone is closed tomorrow... So I guess I'll have to go on Monday...
