So on March 13, 2018 I started noticing some slight itching on my vulva. I was at work and checked to see if maybe I was getting a yeast infection or BV. I couldn't see any discharge so I discounted it. This is the start of my whole life turning upside down. 2 days later my fiancé and I had sex. It felt raw and painful. Ever since then I've had the following symtoms: vaginal redness, this includes redness and irritation around entire vulva and labia majora as well. Redness and irritation inside vagina. Sore feeling on the skin outside the vulva. Is uncomfortable to sit down because my perineum the space between my vagina and anus is sore and hurts worse when I have a bowel movement. Not only that but the skin surrounding my anus is red and sore too and I had an external hemmoroid looking thing a couple weeks back that ended up going back inside but I still feel constipated and sometimes bowel movements are painful and strained. I'm at my wits end. It is now April 18, 2018. I've been to see 4 different doctors. I got diagnosed with a yeast infection and uti so I took diflucan and bactrim. No symptom improvement. I went back and got diagnosed with BV and took flagyl and diflucan. No symptom improvement. Went to see a different doctor and she said she found a few pinhead bumps on my right labia and swabbed me for herpes. (Test came back negative) but before I knew that I took valtrex and a cream to put around my vagina. Didn't work. And the bumps have not changed in any way and they do not hurt or itch or anything. They are just there. So I'm not sure if that's even a contributing factor! I went to see an actual gyno on my last appointment and he said he thinks the problem is all external not internal so he gave me a steroid cream called Lotrisone that is supposed to reduce inflammation and kill yeast. I'm on my 4th day of using it and it is not working! I'm at my wits end! I have a wedding coming up in less than 6 months and I don't want to be dealing with this during that time. I get more and more anxious and depressed with each passing day. Does anyone have any answers, similar symptoms, or suggestions??
