I had three encounters of unprotected sex in the past 3 months (with two different partners...one was for five minutes probably, the other twice, men. Yes I know this is and was unwise, bear with me here). Neither had visible lesions from what I can remember, although I know that does not change anything. I am prone to ingrown hairs in the genital/vaginal region, and lately I have been getting a few more than usual. They have hairs growing out of them (on my vagina) and some will produce pus, and if I squeeze them, later clear fluid, then go completely flat. I have had these checked out by three doctors who agreed that they did not look like herpes lesions, but I know that a visual diagnosis is iffy and sometimes incorrect. I did not experience fever, painful urination, or most other symptoms associated with herpes.
I did notice that I am more prone to getting ingrown hairs/acne closer to the end of my birth control pill pack. I break out on my face and sometimes get zits on my arms even. I revisited my doctor today to perform the iGg herpes tests. My doctor said that these "bumps" did not sound like herpes, but I am a worry-wart and I want to move past my unprotected sexual encounters. Obviously, I have a great deal of fear for the consequences of my actions, but my doctor seemed to think that I was just taking this test for good measure and to be safe. Hopefully he is correct. I have been praying for good news and a negative test for many days now.
My questions are as follows:
1-Is it uncommon to get several ingrown hairs at once, and for some to become painful after squeezing?
2-What is the likeliness of herpes, in your opinion?
3-What gives with the ingrown hairs closer to my period/placebo week? I am also prone to cystic acne :(
4-If you have any words of encouragement, I would love to hear them. I have been totally honest with my mother about this and she has been incredibly supportive. I am only 20 years old and want to move on and discontinue feeling guilty for my actions.
