(First outbreak possibly) Does this look like herpes? Sorry about the graphic photos...

    Okay... so about 2 weeks ago I went over to my friends house and he preformed oral sex on me. That's it. In the last 5 days I've noticed changes in my vagina lip. At first it was a hard pimple looking thing so I didn't think anything of it. All of a sudden it was making my vagina lip swollen, then started hurting. I'm not having pain with urination at all though. Then my bum started feeling dry and itchy but when I looked I noticed what appeared to be tiny cuts around it and it's kind of swollen and hurts to go to the bathroom. Really my bum is the only thing that's super painful... feels like glass and makes me not wanna go. Today I started getting really bad aches under my right butt cheek... something I've never felt before. This weekend I developed a bad cough but then again it is winter and we did just go through this arctic weather. 

    I've done a lot of internet searching and everything's coming back with genital herpes... I'm trying to think of anything else it would possibly be. I just recently had my Mirena out after 4 years and at that appointment was told I had BV and a yeast infection so I was put on this heavy gel antibiotics... idk if this whole thing could possibly have to do with hormonal changes from getting off birth control or if I really did get herpes after receiving oral sex...

    i have a doctors appointment tomorrow

    It looks like it could be, but only your doctor can tell you for sure.  He/she will do a test, and then you'll wait, and then you'll know.  If you do have herpes, it is important to know it isn't the end of the world.  But many of us take a few months or more to get used to our new situation.  Remember; it gets better.

    So she swabbed me and took blood. Said the one on my vagina lip was an ulcer along with the ones around my anus.. 

    the one on my vagina was healing so she took that cotton swab and rubbed really hard on it and said that might not turn out. So it's just a waiting game.

    for some reason I'm having a dull pain under my butt cheek like there's a bruise there but there's not... idk wtf is going on

     I got the same pain. It's usually nerve related. [Sciatic pain] i didn't take my avs for one night a few weeks ago and i almost shot myself. Hope you are negative. This disease friggin sucks and I have probably spent close to 1500 now. Hospital stay depression,meds, Dr visits to get swabs etc. Never friggin ending.

    I'm pretty sure it means you have cold sores on your privates. It is oral herpes so he probably had a cold sore. You may still have outbreaks though. It will be pretty similar to having hsv2. You still basically have genital herpes but from what i've read usually other outbreaks wont be as bad as your first!

        Had unprotected vaginal and oral sex Jan 3. Partner was newly infected from separate partner two weeks previous. Partner was not in outbreak when we had sex. 
        One week later, partner had painful lesions on vagina and was officially diagnosed with genital herpes. 
        Took blood test (way too early) which was negative  
        Have no lesions on my genitals. Nor any itching on my genitals. It’s almost 17 days since the unprotected sex. 
        Yet my thighs itch. Inner thigh, but not where my penis touches. Not unbearable but noticeable. Consistent for 3-4 days. No redness, rash, or any other sign of infection, even where it itches. 
        So im confused. Do I have symptoms or no? My thought is no, but I’m ashamed of my behavior and am over thinking everything. 
        Can somebody help me?

        Hi all,
        I was diagnosed with ghsv1 in December and had an awful awful initial outbreak. I have my first date since diagnosis coming up and I’m terrified. I started speaking to the guy before I contracted herpes, and was super flirty with him with plenty of hints that I’d be willing for things to happen on the first date. Now obviously I can’t do that and everything has changed. I’m not handling life too well anymore and have barely left my house but I don’t want to cancel the date as I really like him. Should I disclose on the first date or wait a while?  
        The other issue I’m having is I really DON’T KNOW if I have oral herpes too and it’s driving me crazy. The guy who gave it to me had oral herpes and transmitted to me through oral sex, so surely the fact I also kissed him means it’s highly likely I contracted it in my mouth too? About a week after I first slept with him I got this strange numb feeling on my tongue that hasn’t gone away. It’s been there for over a month and I’m worried it’s a sign of shedding. It kinda feels like when anaesthesia has nearly worn off but you don’t quite have full feeling in your tongue yet. Also I’ve had a lot of red spots above my top lip- but it could just be acne? I don’t usually get acne there though. I’ve added a pic of how they looked and how they’ve faded.
        Does it look like it could be herpes? Because they haven’t blistered, but have been very painful and swollen. My doctor was perplexed by the numb tongue and spots and said he wasn’t sure if it was oral herpes or not, and so to be safe I shouldn’t kiss my date. But what the hell do I say to him after flirting so much if he tries to kiss me and I back away?  
        Any advice would be so appreiciated. I’m feeling so depressed.

        Okay so I've healed from my first OB by now and I take acyclovir twice a day. But now I feel like the inside of my vagina and sometimes too inside of my anus as well, like it's inflamed or like idk how to explain but kinda just bothersome or tender or bloated. Its not really painful, just slightly uncomfortable and aside from this I'm back to normal. And kinda like where I would get cramps at, is bothersome as well throughout the day. It's not period cramps either. Its just random. Is this normal? Is it internal ob's? If so, does this ever go away? Does anyone have any similar symptoms? Or any suggestions? Do you think it could be something worse? I have not had sex since I've contacted ghsv1. I'm worried this could end up being something worse now.. any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

        Help , very confused. After my initial breakdown and doctor telling me I have hsv-2 before test results it has now been confirmed that I have ghsv-1. What does this mean for me ?? I can find very little information on the internet about this but can i still give my potential partner herpes if we have sex without oral ??

        So I just had a dr at urgent care test me for herpes. She looked at my sores and she did a swab test but she said she could tell by looking at it that's what it is... Anyways I'm pretty sure she's right and this isn't a "do I really have herpes?" post. My real question is about the sores.. I have had small cuts usually just one in the same place over and over again. I always thought I scratched it during masturbation or that it just tore but its always in the same place. The reason I got tested was because for the 2nd time in the last few months I had sores. At first I just thought i had clawed myself because the top one was in the same place as the tear and the 2nd one was by my clitoris.  I've been under alot of stress this year so I figured that is why i had this outbreak but i've had the small tears for a long time. I don't remember having any sores ever. I read your first outbreak is the worst so how is it possible that i've never had a full blown outbreak until now??? Or maybe I just dont remember having the first one???
