Let me start off by saying I have health anxiety to the extreme - I have been suffering from this since mid-2017 after a sexual encounter. The person told me afterwards that he had a genital herpes outbreak years prior. I have since found out it was not a herpes outbreak, but still it kick started this spiralling!
I check my vagina basically every single day to check for any changes, especially now since I somehow managed to contract molluscum!
Basically for the past week now I have been noticing any sort of sensation down there. Whenever I check, nothing looks different - no marks, rashes or anything.
and honestly, when I'm distracted I do not notice anything.
But today I feel like their is a slight ache/burning sensation - the easiest way to describe what I felt was a "pulse" in the left side (inside labia). I've done my usual panic check and there is nothing there. It is slightly discoloured due to fordyce spots and it is patchy. I think my brain is just looking for anything to freak me out!
I have noticed more discharge than usual this past week too. it is milky white and has an ever so slight odour. I thought maybe my pH balance was out due to sex?
Has anyone experienced this before and it not been Herpes or some other STI? I think I am just looking for reassurance...
