"Scared about autoinoculation"
   LAST EDITED ON Sep-01-17 AT 02:10 PM (CST)
I had my first herpes outbreak 3 years ago and I have a crazy question about autoinoculation.

What are the chances that during my first outbreak (when autoinoculation is most likely to happen) I infected my genitals by touching the cold sore when I went to the bathroom and then touched the toilet paper that I used to wipe myself, transmitting an amount of the virus to my vagina?
And when autoinoculation occurs the first symptoms appear soon or it can be only after some big time?

I'm sorry if it seems confuse but I'm really stressed and anxious about it, everytime I think about the possibilities I get scared not about having genital HSV, but by the fact that I can't know if I do have or no.
