Re: Girlfriend has Cut inside Vagina..Herpes?
Hey there -
I'm no doctor, not is anyone else on this site. I'd suggest that you go with what the doctor already told you. I will say that, based on the symptoms you describe, it doesn't sound like SHE has herpes.
However, you say that you have shown signs in past. If you haven't been tested, now is a good time!! Find out for sure if you have it or not, and she will as well. This will give you both the satisfaction of knowing.
Things to know - if you have it, it is spread by skin on skin contact - even when you don't have an outbreak. You would be more likely to spread the virus to her if she has an open sore, like you describe. So, until you know, you might want to abstain - it would help her heal up anyway.
It takes about 3-4 months for the antibodies to build up in your blood. I don't know what your time-lines are, but if your girlfriend is positive, she's had it for at least that long. If you've been seeing her that long, you could have passed it to her prior. It sounds so far like she would be asymptomatic - a "carrier" so to speak.
Best bet - both of you should get blood tests.
I don't think that's the comfort you wanted, but it is the reality. Sorry!
