A swab of the first lesion (tiny paper cut like cut) was taken within 24 hours of it appearing. Then when the blisters appeared ( a couple days later) a swab was taken of them within 12 hours of them appearing. Both swabs came back positive for HSV1.
I've had quite a few vaginal bv and yeast infections over the past few years and am quite familiar with thier symptoms. That said, I will go and get tested for these again. This feeling I'm currently experiencing has only started since my initial HSV outbreak, despite my chronic isues with both yeast and bv. To be honest...when I first presented at the clinic with the initial lesion, the doctor (not my usual gp) said she didn't think it was herpes and suggested it might be a yeast infection fissure. At that time I tested negative for yeast infection, but positive for hsv1
how were you diagnosed as having hsv1 genitally?
you need to go back and be seen again. make sure that they properly test you for yeast and bacterial infections vaginally.
