Vaginal Discharge

Recommended Posts


I have not been diagnosed with Herpes yet because I am still waiting on my doctors appointment which is in 2 days. But i am almost 100 percent sure what I have is Herpes.

Before the sores showed up I had the headache & fever and then the next day i had several open, deep sores. I have been doing the baths, vitamins, and applying witch hazel on my open sores. It seems like everyday i have a new small blister or open sore(not deep) somewhere on my vagina. Is it possible that i could be spreading them to different parts of my vagina or is that normal during the course of an outbreak to have new sores just appear as the old ones are healing?

Another annoying issue I have is increased vaginal discharge. I understand that you need to keep the sores dry as possible so they can heal faster but with this discharge CONSTANTLY dripping and leaking on to the sores I feel like they will never heal. I have tried to put a light tampon in to stop the discharge and keep the area dry but when i tried to put the tampon in i realized i was very sore internally also so i couldnt put it in. Has any females experienced increased discharge leaking onto their sores and slowing down the healing process.. and what did you do about it?

yes i have experienced discharge and constant raw burning painful feeling internally. definitely do not put anything in there....no tampons. i had these symptoms a year before i was diagnosed with H. i just let it run its coarse. i often took a pain killer because the feeling was too much to bare. ask your doctor when you go to your next appointment.

this virus is the WORST!!! I hate myself for having this. Good luck.

Smithconfused - dont hate yourself for having H - its to far out - OK!?

However the circumstances related your infection by H doesnt matter - it doesnt make you a bad person to be infected - it doesnt make you somebody different to whom you were before getting infected - you are OK! - you are a good person; - follow the goals and the path you were on before getting H infected and your life will get good again - believe I do this and it works - forget about H! Makes no sense to think about....even you OB - treat it with meds and forget it....surpress the pain - surpress everything that has to do with H and it will vanish from your life. Be open and calm about your condition and life will turn normal.

Trust me!

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.

      @WilsoInAusi wish you were right.  you can't say that with such confidence having never met me though.  I had one MD look at my sore on Sunday @ 8pm, said it was not looking herpetic but to come back in the morning.  I came back in the morning and he said it looked exactly like a cold sore/HSV1 based on the changes / "ablative look" to the skin around the lip.  The Dermatologists have never seen me with a sore until yesterday, too, and had only seen pictures.  They're used to the classic HSV2 look that shows up in Google Images. I think the swab test will be definitive - we broke open the sore and sent it off within  48 hours of appearing.  I'm also waiting for my 13 week IGG type specific HerpeSelect Immunoblot any day now using RequestATest - LabCorp.

      Not really wanting to call Terry.  I'll be checking the term anecdotal as I agree it may not be the best term. Maryland University seems to disagree and there was a researcher looking into random transmissions off poss objects in the eighties.

      There are two cases of torts in the USA in regards to transmission from surfaces. These require a 50% probability in causation and would be medically confirmed. I would say the reason it is less documented as people just deal with it and get on with their lives or it happens more frequently in lower socio economic groups that all just go into denial.

      I'm collecting the less than usual experiences Wilson, and not all professionals agree with Terry. These myths in my experience do not always get around with no basis.

      The thread was more about antibodies any ways and I was just mostly sharing my experience of reading  those who claim a neg IgG. I am sorry I veered from that here.

      One person I have read here claim neg IgG. And years ago there were two people who also claimed neg IgG.

      It is up to each person to do their own research before they spend money on products.
