    No, not definitely, although as you probably know the chances of transmission do increase as a result of unprotected sex. It helps that the girl in question hasn't had an outbreak, but symptoms can be quite mild. It generally takes between 2-12 days for symptoms to appear - but having said that, you may not get symptoms. I think for your own peace of mind you should be checked out. Even if you do have the infection at least you will have that insight and can use protection when you have sex, thus helping to reduce further transmission.

I have been experiencing some itchiness in the area, but I also shave this area. I
