Recommended Posts

I had unprotected sex back in feb & march with the same person, over the past week which is 4-5 months later, I started having a burning, irritated feeling in my genitals I then found out I had a UTI which I get very often, about 5 days later I noticed 2 tiny sore looking bumps on my labia and one inside my labia which all were bleeding a little, I have no other symptoms, could it be? I have been married for over 10 yeasr but my husband & I split up for a few months when I was with the other person, would he too have had symptoms by now? Also, the 2 sores on my labis kinds just went away, no oozing or scabs at all, no itching either the sores only hurt when I pressed on them.

sypmtoms vary from person to person

The sypmtoms vary from person to person. Some people have immediate OBs and some never have OBs. It is my understanding that if your bumps are bleeding, then it's not an OB. It should also be a blister, not a regular bump. Sounds more like an ingrown hair to me. You would still need to visit your doc and get tested to be on the safeside. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Does the blister look like a blister you would have on your hand or something? All th pictures I've looked at the sores look so bad.Do herpes sores not bleed?

I also read that the vaginal sores look like the oral sores, is that true?

Most of the photos you will find on the internet are "worst case scenarios." Many folks have outbreaks that look nothing near that bad.

The problem is, nobody here can tell you what your sores are, not even if we could look at them in person. And not even if we were doctors.

Visual diagnosis of herpes is notoriously unreliable because it can look so different from person to person -- and because a lot of other conditions look similar.

The ways to get a more accurate diagnosis are:

  • by getting a lesion swabbed and cultured when one is fresh, or
  • by getting a type specific blood test that checks for IgG antibodies

Doesn't sound typical for herpes, but again, no way anyone here can tell you that for sure.
