    Red face What is this demon in my vagina?

    I am experiencing a vaginal health issue that I thought was a onetime thing.
    About 3 years ago, I was lying in bed one day and experienced some vaginal itching and extreme discomfort. I grabbed a mirror, and checked out what was happening down there. Because it was kind of a while ago, I canít remember what exactly I saw, but it involved reddish and swollen, irritated skin, and white, um, fungus growing and unwilling to wash out. I also had a fever. I panicked. I had no idea what it was. I was a virgin, only 15. I told my mom. She told me it kind of sounded like herpes, and said she knew, because she has them. I expressed to her that I was really a virgin. We made a doctorís appointment as soon as possible, and my doctor looked down there and couldnít identify what it was (except maybe herpes), so I had to go to the gynecologist. During this time, it kept getting worse and worse down there. From what I can remember, a large green scab formed, and it hurt my wounds every time I peed. As if things couldnít get any worse, I got my period, another edition to my pain, bringing me to the point where it hurt to walk. So by the time I got to the gynecologist, I was completely jaded, cursing the gods, wondering why this was happening to me. She asked if I was a virgin. I said yes. She asked my mom to step out. She asked if I was a virgin. I said yes. After undergoing agonizing pain, she took a swab of the chaos to take a culture test to see if I have herpes. They gave me 3 types of medication: they gave me something for herpes, they gave me antibiotics, and they gave me painkillers. Under those medications, I eventually healed over about two weeks. We got the test back and it came back negative. My mom and I concluded that perhaps I wasnít paying enough attention to my hygiene, such as using the same towel for a long time, or wearing dirty underwear.
    Since then, after that traumatizing experiencing, I have made sure to keep it nice and sparkling clean down there. Of course I have experienced things like discharge and odors, but nothing like the catastrophe that happened last time. Until now.
    Now I am 18, and just a bit more than a month, got in my first committed relationship. About a month into the relationship, I handed him those sacred keys to my virginity. While we did have unprotected oral sex, we for sure had protected vaginal sex. The first couple nights we had sex, I was on cloud 9. Everything was good down there (at least it felt like that). This last time however, just about 4 days ago, I felt just a LITTLE irritation, but nothing to be alarmed about. The next day, my vagina felt just a little itchy, just a tad bit irritated. I told myself, perhaps it was just the condom, and maybe it irritated my lady regions. The next morning, my vagina itched, and I thought oh crap, this isnít just any itchy crotch. With dread, I grabbed the mirror, looked down there, and sure enough there it was. A little swollen, and white, what I can only identify as fungus, stuck around my vagina and labia. I began to panic as I had flashbacks to 3 years ago. I tried to gently take off that nasty odorless white stuff, but itís not budging. And from this point, I know itís only going to get worse and worse.
    Iím trying to think how I could possibly have genital herpes. I couldnít have gotten them from my mom, because she had a C-section. The culture test I had three years ago came back negative, and even if it was a false negative, I was a virgin and didnít have a relationship, until my current boyfriend. However, I canít help think, what if I passed something on to him? If I somehow have herpes, what if I gave him type 1 or 2 when he gave me oral? I would think that if my issue was already growing down there, he would have said something. I should probably be concerned with the fact that maybe he gave me herpes (since he has definitely had a couple of relationships before me), but right now, I am not thinking about that.
    If anybody has had a similar experience, or has any words of wisdom, or can miraculously identify what this demon in my vagina is, please, please, let me know.

    it sounds more like your basic yeast infection than it does herpes!
