I had unprotected sex with an ex who ive known for 9 years. that night, i had a burning sensation. the next day, a grey spot appeared on the inside of my vag lip. The next day it turned into a huge soar so i immediatly went in for an STD screening. The Doc said she's not sure that its herpes. And confirmed that the sore is a lesion/ulcer. She gave me Acyclovir to take for the next 10 days. Today is day 1. My symptoms have worsened to fevers over 100, headaches, stinging itchy round small sores on the outside of my vagina. the ulcer only hurts if urine comes in contact with it. the little round ones sting and itch off and on and if touched. Im scared out of my mind. ! Is this 1st stage syphilis or herpes or what? Im stressing and think im going to lose my mind before my results come back.
odds are that neither you nor your partner have ever been tested for herpes. if you haven't been tested within the last 3 months, you both should seek out type specific herpes igg blood testing to see who has what.
yes i got tested for EVERYTHING. its been approx. 9 months since my last std screening (testing). they did a swab and blood test. results will be back in 4days, , ,just wanted some kind of idea of what to expect.
