I’ll try to make it short & simple as possible but you have to know the whole story from beginning to end.
Could this be symptoms of herpes, over medicated or allergic reaction??? OBGYN says HERPES & the test can come back negative but, It can be a false negative (2wks from now)…..uuummm what the hell =(
I did/do not have blisters, bumps or sores & no discharge. I do shave there regularly & would have notice that! I have never experienced this (down there) ever before. My husband & I have been together for 14yrs and he has never had herpes symptoms or diagnosed with herpes. I had a child a little over 2yrs ago & my OBGYN did check for all STDs at that time. Other than that nothing has changed, I did not fool around & even though it is possible I don’t believe my husband has either and again he has no symptoms. now I am taking meds for herpes and I am not officially diagnosed with it.
