Concerned of what it could be

Posted , 5 users are following.


i had drunk and rough sex on the 23rd december with my partner that i have been with for a couple of months. it was unprotected, stupid i know! i have vestibulodynia so when i have sex it is painful and i swell pretty badly even with lube. this time in the moment we didnt use anything at all so i didnt think much of it when i was in pain after, also shaved that afternoon before sex.

a couple days (27th) i was as experiencing really itchy vulva, still swollen, painful and excessive milky white thick discharge of which smelt yeasty. i went to the chemist and got 1 oral tablet of fluconazole.

as time has passed my discharge seems to keep changing, id say just still a lot of creamy discharge, can sometimes be yellowy when wiped, with a tinge of green? i have been using hytocrotizone cream and washing in hippiscrub as ive noticed i had a sores on the inside, which i cant work out if its from friction or whether ive contracted genital herpes?!

i have also a swollen labia minora which throbs what is causing me the most discomfort! it feels similar to a trapped ingrowing hair!

i have gone to the doctors, they didnt do an internal but they have done swabs for everything and just having to wait which feels like forever.

what are peoples thoughts??? excuse the discharge.

    When did the open sores appear? When was your swab? Did they do any blood work? The waiting is hard. When should your results be in?

      yeah i did. they said it was a positive result of herpes. beside myself. i dont know what to do. this is my first sexual partner since my ex of 7 years, before that i wasnt particulary safe with protection. i just want to know whether its a possibilty i have a had it for years and it has stayed dormant, as my ex has never had any signs of it and that it was the my new partner as it is very coincidental that pretty much straight after sex i had symptoms of thrush and then noticed my red sores?

      thats what im thinking. ive had to call things off and say that im not in the right head space because im now trying to deal with this and scared to say anything. i dont want to assume it is him if it was me all along, do you get what i mean? im going to go to our wish clinic to get more information and see whether there is any test or explain the situation to see whether they would know if it was more likely to be him. ? im just honestly gutted.
