I went through your history.
Rapid tests are not very specific. You need to undergo confirmatory tests after three months of possible exposure.
But I can assure you that most probably it also will be negative.
Regarding herpes the incubation period is shorter and hence you would have developed ulcers on the genitalia in case if infected. Hence it is not probable in you.
Regarding the aches I think it is part of fear complex.
I suggest you to always have a safe sex in future.
Have a healthy day

I went through your history. Since you used to get oral blisters since chilhood it could be apthous stomatitis or herpes simplex type I. Genital herpes is type ii.
You may confirm it by undergoing blood tests like immunoglobulins igg and igm for herpes virus type I and ii.
Still I could not relate your complainta to recent exposure. You may however consult your physician for a through clinical examination and decide.
Have XXXXXXX day
