User :   I had intercourse with a woman that is now going through severe pain and trouble and while she still expects results to confirm it the doctor thinks it probably is herpes. I did not notice symptoms on me but she said she could have only gotten it from me. Now it's been 2 weeks but I start to feel a sort of burning sensation around the groin area and maybe a little muscle pain. I'd like to know what to do to check if I have it considering I have no open sores or redness. I am more and more anxious and very worried about the life long consequences and the guilt of transmitting this to her or other partners...
