Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. With status known of the partner, i'm sure herpes is not the case , as not every oral coitus gives herpes. You can get your throat swabs any time if it bothers you. Take some prophylactic antivirals if you think its likely. Get a doctor and let them be the judge of that.

I hope it helps.Please take good care of yourself and do as directed.I would advise to stay in touch with your health care provider as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor where a complete evaluation occurs. I will be here if you need me or have any more questions to ask, i would love to answer.

May the odds be ever in your favour.

Take care
