I was diagnosed with HPV about 3 years ago, but never had any symptoms besides a few abnormal paps. Recently I developed an extremely painful sore inside my vagina and my doctor is concerned it may be herpes. Waiting for my test results. Any chance it could be related to HPV???View Thread
I have not received my labs back yet but am all but positive I have HSV2. About 5 days ago a sore showed up on the inside of my vagina. It is extremely painful and kinda resembles a blister. It hasn't gotten much better, but 2 days ago went to the OB and she prescribed Valtrex and a cream, both used to treat genital herpes. The closer I get to receiving my results the more sure I am. There is just nothing else it could be. I have no idea how I contracted this. I am in a realtionship that has been going on for 3 months now, and it is pretty serious. I am terrified to tell him in fear I will lose him. I know I have to, I just want to wait for my results. In the meantime I have to keep coming up with excuses not to have sex. Honestly, I have this feeling that my life is over. This is a totally shock. I don't feel like I have anyone to talk to that will understand. I'm so lost.View Thread
