Looking for Help/Advice - warning images included

Recommended Posts

Confused12345

I’m looking for some help and advice and I know nobody on here can diagnose anything for me but I thought those who have been diagnosed might know a bit more about this than me. So I got what I thought was a UTI a couple of weeks ago, I was on vacation so I waited until I got back to go to the GP. It started off with urge to pee frequently, pain when peeing and not able to pass a lot of urine at a time. It then started being a bit painful down below just in general so I decided to take a look and saw what I would consider not normal (see pics) and haven’t noticed before but then again don’t look right up there often. I don’t know how long this has been there or if the pain was because of the UTI or because of what’s down there. This has been 2.5 weeks since I discovered this. I saw my doctor 2 days ago and said I thought maybe I had warts but she did not think it looked like warts at all and dismissed this as a possibility on examination she did think it looked very much like herpes and did a swab which came back today as negative - the test for the UTI was positive and have been prescribed something for this. I wondered what else it could be if it wasn’t that though and whether the test could be wrong and when I looked into it I believe a false negative is possible especially if it’s after the first couple days? I hadn’t thought of it being Herpes to begin with as they don’t seem like they have fluid in them? I have booked myself and partner in for a full STI check next week anyway as it’s something we should have really done in the first place. However in the meantime I wanted to know those who have a herpes diagnosis or experience did they think this looks like it at all? I also saw online another condition called Vestibular Pappilomatosis which isn’t an STI and wondering could it be that but don’t know if that’s just wishful thinking. My doctor did not mention this as a possibility. I have been having unprotected sex with new-ish partner for 5 months now. No previous symptoms and he hasn’t shown any symptoms while we have been together and he says never (I believe him). Can anyone help (I hope the photos are not too offensive)

Sorry I am struggling to attach the photos does anyone know how to do this? It’s saying they’re too big (just off my phone)

@Confuse12581 how was your follow up diagnosis? I’m really interested to know what the subsequent result was if the initial test was negative.

That does not look like herpes. its Good you’ve got an appointment at the GUM clinic though. A blood test will give you a better result. Be at ease, don’t stress out about it. Even if it was herpes, it’s not the end of the world.

@Aries86 what do you think it might be? I have very much the same symptoms.

@WilsoInAus your thoughts?

Hey @Confused12345 I’m surprised your doc hasn’t got a few more ideas. Perhaps see a gyn.

My first thought was cervical polyps. But maybe a vessel issue not dissimilar to haemorrhoids.

Point is that it’s probably not herpes and could be a range of conditions your doctors will hopefully resolve with you.

Thanks @WilsoInAus. I wondering if you can have herpes and heamaroids at the same time? Sorry if that’s a dumb question. But I was diagnosed last year by swab. I had the lesions. I haven’t seen any since. I don’t even know if I’ve had another outbreak or if it’s just haemmaroids I’m seeing all the time. They’ve never gone away.They are like multiple redish pink round mini pea sized lumps just inside the vagina. I don’t have the finger like protrusions. I don’t have any abnormal bleeding etc.

Hey @Lola16 yes see your gym on that one, sounds potentially like polyps but see an expert here to guide your treatment.

Was your swab properly typed you think?

Hey @WilsoInAus, unfortunately it was swabbed and correctly typed. I remember seeing the lesions myself that were on the outer area.I wish the whole world over that it was wrong. While the outer area is now clear it’s the inner area that has remained the same 🙁

      It was not the main point of the discussion. Did I write that I believe in such an approach? I only referred to it because I wanted to point out that researchers have always been looking at the condition called latency, trying to demystify it.

      I'm not the one who claimed that he said that, and I don't have time now to read the literature to try and find it. Bob made the claim so if anything then he should be the one to back it up. I am not doubting that the fasting mimicking diet works to get autophagy going. It's a vegetable soup with some fat, so it makes sense that it would - glucose and protein inhibit autophagy, so just leave them both out and run on fat and micronutrients for a while. It's actually a kind of ketogenic diet, just without protein. Yet at the same time as promoting this specific type of keto diet, he trashes the standard keto diet with arguments that make no sense to me. That's why he seems suspect to me, because it looks like he is trying to tell people that his own expensive product is the only way to get the coveted autophagy, that you can't get it yourself simply through doing keto and/or intermittent fasting. And his product is quite overpriced for a simple vegetable soup, which is all it really is. I can make that myself. Or just boil some veggies and add some butter or a creamy sauce, I used to eat such meals quite often actually before I went carnivore. I must have been getting lots of autophagy then without even realising it. Yes, it might be that he is right about the onset of autophagy, or half-right if it depends on how keto-adapted you are. But since he has a vested interest, his word should not count as evidence for us. I don't think that's being unfair to him. If Bob wants us to believe it, he needs to provide evidence from a neutral source. @Bob8857 Do you have any better evidence?

      Please. Go ahead for transparency sake...let him.know you tested negative on a western blot and every other test before you tell him you have hsv. Because we all know it's coming.  Feel the Blurne!!!

      Post flagged for moderation. You have once again hijacked the thread to self serve your own delusion, You’ve been warned multiple times by several moderators and on your last warning. Your diagnosis was not confirmed but hypothesised on the basis of a now false positive IgG test. The WB failed to confirm.
