I have the following symptoms and I did go to the doctor: white milky vaginal discharge, painful urination, urine retention (I have to push to fully empty my bladder), itchy vagina internally but not externally on the genitalia, and 3 sores. when I went to the doctor I had 2 sores on either side of my vaginal opening, they had turned into ulcers and have been open for about 4 days now. She examined me, agreed it was probably chlamydia and not herpes but took a herpes culture anyway to be sure. She thought the sores were from irritation or rubbing. I won't get those results for another 6 days about Herpes culture sad about a day after I came back from the doc a third bump appeared close to my pubice, it has not turned into an ulcer yet but this is about 4-5 days after the initial 2 bumps appeared. I was negative for BV also. I will know tomorrow if it's chlamydia or Gonorreah which I'm taking antibiotics for, but I have been researching for days and can't find any evidence those cause sores. They don't look like herpes to me though, they start out as large pimples, they feel deep not like tiny skin blisters but actual pimples like if you got a big one on your face that's sore. They are not in clusters either or appear pus filled. Im not sure if I can attach pictures of the ulcer which hasn't healed yet and the new bump that appeared recently.... Anyone have herpes that looks like this? Anyone have any suggestions on what else it could be or if chlamydia or Gonorrea caused sores for them? I'm honestly freaking out don't know how I'll be able to wait six days for results I can barely sleep thinking about this. These symptoms appeared 3 days after having unprotected sex with my partner who recently went overseas and confirmed to me he had unprotected sex there.
