 Post subject: Cold Sore/Risk??

*Note--sorry if this is a double post; My computer has been acting weird lately.

Last night, I was hooking up with a friend, who had mentioned earlier in the evening that he thought he had a cold sore. I told him that, since that was the case, then oral sex was not a good idea. We had manual sex, but at one point I noticed him licking his finger/using his saliva as a lubricant before fingering me. I kind of freaked out but didn't have time to tell him to stop before it was too late.

I've read through the website and found that this is a risk to transmit the herpes virus. My questions are:

1. How high is this risk? (In general, and/or relative to direct mouth-to-genital contact?) We had sex afterwards, if that makes any difference.
2. How many days do I have to wait before going for a test?

Thanks!

This really isn't a risk. I wouldn't worry about it.
