ph question

Posted , 2 users are following.

Does anyone know if internal herpes lesions can cause elevated ph.  I just got diagnosed with herpes, but always thought my vaginal pain was BV.  I used elevated ph to diagnose myself.  Now I have elevated ph, but herpes outbreak.  Not sure if the herpes will elevate the ph

    I'm not entirely sure but I think it might be possible. I was just dianosed with Genital HSV-1 (ugh) and when I went in for the swab last week she told me I also had BV. I just finished the antibiotic for that and it cleared right up so far. I'm curious if another outbreak will trigger the BV again.

    Mine was atypical also. No odor or discharge and the doctor said she didn't see any internal sores. I would imagine that internal sores would effect ph though.

      I had lots of exams around the bv issue

      Lots of eyes on and no one ever saw anything

      Right now my vagina labia and anus are on fire and still no sores

      I had one little bump on my labia that was almost indistinguishable from goose flesh. I pointed it out to doc. She said it was not likely herpes but she would check nonetheless. Bam!!
