VP, herpes? Help please! Pics included

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi all,

I visited PP ~5 weeks ago because i'd been having some symptoms of an STD such as itching and tingling. I was tested for chlamydia, herpes & gonorrhea but all my cultures and bloodwork came back normal. I breathed a sigh of relief and moved on with my life. My therapist even suggested my symptoms may be psychosomatic.

Fast forward to now and for about 3 days I had similar symptoms, followed by the development of some bumps at my vaginal opening. They have not spread to any other part of my body at this time.

For some background info, i've been with several new partners in the last six months. I've also had about 5 UTIs, several yeast infections & was diagnosed with BV during this time frame (my vagina hates me). I currently have no abnormal discharge or smell.

Can anyone offer any advice as to what this is or what it definitely is not? I'm extremely concerned it may be herpes despite my panels coming back negative a month ago.

Please let me know if the pics are insufficient. Its a little difficult to get a good picture of that area. imageimageimageimage

    yeah i had a pap done two it will tell you if you have hpv with there are over a 100 different strands and only two that course worth the pap only tells if its in your blood ... so if you do hpv in your which pretty much everyone does it wont mean those bumps are warts it still might be vp as there is so many different strand of hpv the clinic said this to me today and the onky way to test if bumps arr warts if by visual exam and a biopsy so if you dont think look like wart which my doctors doesnt believe it does i guess we just have to hope and pray and try not to keep lookin and touching it which is very hard to do once you know its there
