Vaginal sore, concerned
Good afternoon everyone,
So a week ago me & my boyfriend spent the week together. We had sex every night, we used a condom about 70% of the time but he never came inside of me. I shaved down there, twice, and noticed no irritation. I came back on Thursday afternoon and felt fine. The next day, he tells me that he noticed a swollen lymph node in his groin and this began to concern me. I looked down there with a mirror to examine myself. I noticed a wound on my lower labia, it isn't painful or itchy and it does not bleed, and I also noticed that there are tiny cuts by my vaginal opening, and raised bumps (but no pus/blisters) I have accepted the fact that it could be herpes. But could it possibly be a sore from continuous, daily rough sex? Combined with a yeast infection or bacterial infection? He was pretty rough & I was pretty dry. I have sensitive skin (eczema), and have seen my skin look pretty bad, so I am just wondering, as it does not look like the pictures of herpes I am seeing online. I know not all signs are typical but still. I am wondering if it could possibly be ANYTHING else other than herpes. Is it possible to get a herpes sore without it blistering first? And for it to not be painful at all? I feel like I would have noticed something like that before it ruptured. I have no other symptoms, I feel fine, it does not hurt to urinate, and I do not feel any pain except a bit of a sting from the wound against my underwear, but it currently looks like it is getting 'better' from the Neosporin I have been applying to it. I went to the gyno today to do blood work & to get the sore cultured. The nurse practitioner, who I do have faith in as a physician, said by looking at it that it does in fact look like the primary outbreak of herpes. But I can't help but feel like I disagree :\ It just doesn't look the same to me. She said in 20 years she has only been wrong twice, and I'm hoping that this will be her 3rd misdiagnoses. I have accepted the fact of what it may be, but I can't help but have hope. Any feedback would be helpful. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Pray for me.
