I have every sign of an std, but my tests are negative! Response greatly appreciated!

Okay, I posted these two topics on another website... had no responses, mainly b/c the site was unreliable. But maybe yall can help me
here is the first one... the other one i posted today:

1st post:
okay, so I was raped in june of this year. After that, I began noticing that stuff was going on. I have discharge, and burning and itching, along with small spots (they look and feel like small cuts) The pain is very bad, and I went to see the doctor. She said that it looked like it was herpes, and ran a test, but everything came back normal. She tested for all of the stds.. not just the basic ones. and nothing came up. What the hell is going on? I made an appointment again for next week, but now the pain has gotten so bad that it hurts to use the restroom, and even when i wash. My whole area is swollen... i dont have health insurance or else i might go to the er. but the soonest appointment for my free doc is next week. does anyone know what I can do to make this better for the next week?? ↓

2nd post... today
Oaky so I went to my doctors appointment and they took one look at it and guessed it was Herpes, just like I guessed. They did a culture on some of the leisions and took blood. This is the second time I've had a full STD test. They tested for everything so far, atleast that's what I'm asuming. I called them today, and they said my test results were negative again. It's comforting to know I do not have Herpes, but the symptoms have gotten alot worse just in the last week. I am having alot of discharge, strong odor, cuts (leisions), sometimes bleeding, breakthrough bleeding (I am on birthcontrol), altered mood, sleep, extreme thirst (I drink alot of water... alot!) I understand that the mood, sleep and thirst may not be related, but how does one know how to separate symptoms? I may have ten different things causing this... idk.. its just making me sick... im ready to be treated, and the docs dont even know how to treat me. I was called in for yet another follow up asap, but until then (Wednesday) I guess I just wonder??? Does anybody find these symptoms familiar? I googled alot of my symptoms, and read alot of forums, and it seems a bunch of ppl are having symptoms of std's and negative test results. In alot of these forums though, ppl never had closure on what was wrong... so what is it??? Anyone have some intelligent guesses? I mean it could be HPV, I dont think they tested for that yet. i'll ask them on wednesday... but can a hormone inbalance cause discharge, leisions and pain??? not in any biology/anatomy class I took. Those are signs of an infection... which I supposedly do not have. Bacterial infections will get bad quickly or test positive quickly, so thats cancelled out... yeast infection.. I used monostat on myself, and Im about to do it again just incase (I read that It may not work the first try in some women) It did not work on me whatsoever. Then theres viral infections like HPV , Herpes, etc... which can cause these symptoms... but I tested negative twice. Although I tested negative, my doc still gave me meds for herpes to take 3 times a day for 10 days to see if it helps. I have been taking it and it seems to be making things worse if anything. idk what is wrong... but if u think u know, ur input is appreciated.

I am so sorry for what you have been through.

I would research all the possible tests you can have, make a list and then ask your doctor. Don't assume that they know what to test for.

Do you have a university nearby? You might be able to go see a specialist, or an expert in woman's issues.

See if you can test for ureaplasma. Also see if you can do a mycology for the yeast...maybe another strain not affected by monistat. I think yeast in a bad form can cause lesions. Aside from those what about trichomonas. Those are some that are overlooked.

From what you're describing, it sounds like a bacterial infection to me...which I've had several times and its SO painful...I always bleed from it and get sores...hurts to's the worst thing ever.

Did you use the monistat within two days before having the cultures taken? B/c that can mess with the results. Or use any type of cream or wash down there before the cultures?

Feel better, hun.

okay so today i saw my doc, and she blew me off really.. i told her that i think that we may need to test for other things, b/c my symptoms have been getting worse... on saturday i discovered a lump about the size of a quarter, and it was def not normal... on top of that my break through bleeding has become more frequent. she gave me a herpes medicine, and said to try that for six months... and prescribed a new birth control.. my pelvic area hurts so much, idk if i can just wait six months... i may just go to the er... i dont have money for a good doc who will take thier time.. idk what to do.. i could just wait it out... but im almost positive that theres something more happening here... the doc was free so most likely she dosent care enough to look into it, but this shits going to kill me.. from the last time i posted, the pain scale has gone up atleast 3 points. it hurts so bad... and even with my birth control, im bleeding... and its really weird blood too... not like normal, at all.. pasty, and thick, and either pink or a dark marroon, not the brown like old blood brown but a deeeeeep red. idk what to do.
