New and Question

Hi all.
I have a question. Is a swollen labia (vaginal lip) a symptom of herpes??

About 3 weeks ago I started to get a black and blue sensation on my labia but it only hurt when I wiped. Well after 3 weeks I figured I would go get it checked out. I went to my GYN and he told me he thinks it's herpes. I was devestated since I have only been with my husband for 12 years. Well I have no doubt he hasn't cheated on me. We are together ever waking moment. But besides that

I now have a enlarged or swollen labia, it hurts to walk or stand as it feels sooo sore. I have no itching, no foul smell, and no blister (THAT I CAN SEE) my GYN thinks he saw some. I don't get b/w or culture results till monday so I'm sitting and waiting.

Do you think it can be herpes?? If it wasn't for the black and blue sensationo I would feel nothing at all. Also I have read some places to do a "vinegar test" what is that??
I put some vagiguard on it today and it has helped very little so I'm bearing it and getting through till monday. One last question is there any danger in letting it go so long if it is herpes? I mean should my doctor have given me something???

thanks for your time and responses in advance.

Re: New and Question

Well it can be herpes... There are ways to contract it other then your husband cheating on you.. Like you could have hsv 1 if he had any coldsores and performed oral sex on you. sometimes the outbreak is so mild it goes unnoticed. As for the waiting thing... well I read somewhere that if you take valtrex within a few days of symptoms then you are 1/3 less likely to get another outbreak or something like that?! Im not toooo sore. But anyways the sooner the better.... Take care ad I hope its not herpes!
