I'm new so I thought I'd share. back around October I had this pain and made a same day appt with my doctor. she gave me a pelvic exam and said it did not look like herpes which made me happy because my whole sexually active life that had been my biggest fear. she said it looked like irritation and a few cuts. then she left the room and came back with a book and said she thinks it might be h. I had tunnel vision....I was scared, hurt, I literally wanted to die. I asked for a test and she agreed. my culture came back as negative for herpes and positive for staph and ecoli. she put me on antibiotics and it went away within maybe two days. I told my then bf about it and he was very supportive. One night while we were waiting for my results we decided to have sex. I told him we needed to use a condom because I don't want to give it to him in case he doesn't have it. mid sex he took the condom off saying he didn't care cuz he loved me that much....I think he was the one who gave it to me. then in December it came back. so I went to my gyno this time she said it didn't look like herpes but that she would test Me for it just in case. this test came back negative as well but positive for strep. antibiotics cured it up. then it came back at the end of February so I called my gyno that delivered my son... she was booked all day but a nurse practitioner could fit Me in. she looked at it and said I'm 100% positive this is not herpes. I was so relieved. she did a culture and a blood test. the next day I got my results. One came back saying just hsv and the other came back abnormal. she said there are like 116 different strands and that's why It didn't say 1 or 2 and that the other one came back abnormal. I talked to my gunk that delivered my son the next day and she said she definitely believes it is hsv2. I'm confused though because the nurse practitioner said she wanted to test me again in 3 months because she really doesn't think it's that. I think the np having said all that is what got my hopes up. so there's my story. sorry is my grammar is horrible... I'm doing this all from my phone.
