Hi, very long post alert but im looking for advise from experienced people... Heres a little background story;.. about 9 months ago I found out I have HSV1-G during my first and only outbreak. It seems like since around that time, ive been itchy and irritated on and off. For months I thought it was my body adjusting to the virus but I finally got fed up and went to the doctor. Doctor told me herpes would not make me constantly irritated with no outbreaks.. and it turns out I had BV and a yeast infection.. I completed the treatment and didnt have much relief. I went back to the doctor about a month later but this time tested negative for the BV and Yeast? but i do remember that specific day I wasnt very irritated down there in general, (symptoms come and go) .. Tested negative for any additional stds..
Well now, it is better but still not normal. Since its been 9 months of irritation I have established a routine to minimize my symptoms: I use toiletpaper and laundry detergent made for sensitive skin, cotton only underwear (no more thongs), daily probiotics and multi vitamins, dont wear tight pants, dont ride a bike, dont shave down to the skin, and I use yeast infection cream for one night whenever I start to get itchy again, so usually I use it about once a week.. My doctors have been no help and I have to wait a long time to go back in.
Im starting to wonder if one of my medications is effecting my vagina. Im only 22 so its not menopause.. Im on: depo provera injection (5 years), levocetrazine (1 year), Adderall (2 years), Welbutrin (1 year).. Some additional new symptoms: very dry mouth. Frequent micro tares during sex and spotting after. and i always have dried up stuff on the outside skin of my vulva (picture below) not coming from inside me its coming from the pores around my vulva. I think it might be normal secreations but its clumping up? not sure but i didnt have it before.
I have no idea what to do anymore, my sex life is dying, my fiance has been supportive but its taking a toll on him too. I feel gross. I am worried because I want to have kids within the next few years but dont see that happening if its still like this. I know this isnt going to go away if I keep doing what im doing now. it seems like im alone.. Some of my symptoms kind of seem similar to menopause so thats why im thinking maybe I should get my estrogen checked? But also skeptical of yeast and bv since I tested positive the first time and yeast cream helps with my itching.. I know this is very situational but im hoping someone might have some ideas?
