I had rough sex with my boyfriend for 4 days, the night of the 4th day my vulva ached. The next day I started having pain in my labia near the vaginal opening. I went to the doctor and she said I have herpes. I was confused because before my boyfriend and I became sexually active, we were virgins and have never done it with anyone else up to now. This is my 2nd day on acyclovir 200 mg 5x a day and the pain still hasn't gone away. I have a swollen vulva and
labia minora, white discharge and wounds down there. I got my gram stain results today and I have rare pus cells, rare gram positive cocci in pairs, rare gram positive bacilli, rare epithelial cells and rare yeast cells.
Could this be herpes? Help me! I can barely walk due to the pain
if this is herpes, it can take 2-3 weeks for the symptoms to heal, even with herpes antivirals :(
hsv1 would be the most likely cause of genital herpes if this is herpes. can your partner recall ever having had cold sores? did your provider do any herpes lesion cultures on your symptoms or just a visual diagnosis of herpes?
