I am a 33 year old female. Last week I started experiencing itching and pain in my v area... I went to my gyn for what I thought was a bad yeast infection. She confirmed the yeast infection and prescribed me a one dose pill. She also said she did a swab to send to the lab. I took the pill two days ago, but I am still experiencing the itching and I'm sooo uncomfortable down there. I also have a few bumps, which I am trying to see them myself but due to the location, they are obviously very hard to see. I am also experiencing the tingling feeling that I have recently read so much about. I am going to call my dr tomorrow to request a blood test to confirm my suspicions. I am just so scared. I recently had a new sexual partner that was pretty much a one time thing, he did wear a condom but now that I have looked into herpes further, I realize that condoms do not always protect against the herpes virus. Can anyone please give me advice about what my life is going to be like, if I did contract the virus. I am very worried and upset, so kind words only please.
