I was diagnosed with herpes about a year ago. Since then I've only had maybe 1 or 2 outbreaks. They never crust over, while present they don't even look like typical outbreaks I've seen or read descriptions for. Just recently after my period I noticed a bump on my inner labia, I went to the doctor same day. She swabbed, did a microscopic test and says she noticed no abnormalities whatsoever. She also performed a vaginal exam and noticed nothing wrong. I also did a blood test again and am waiting for the results. There's no pain maybe a slight itch and only feels bothered when the area is affected by movement, but that does not hurt. I just want answers I'm only 19 and don't want to be affected for the rest of my life by a misdiagnosis.View Thread
I don't have many questions, I have done A LOT of research and I just know that I don't want to take any prescription medications for this. I know a lot of people have had luck with Oil of Oregano P73 and I'm going to try it out and see if I have any success. Thanks so much for your advice.View Thread
Okay I'm still waiting for the blood test results to come back, but they said they would only call if it's positive. Would they be able to give me the numerical results and all the details via phone? When she swabbed it the other day, she said it was negative, but I decided to go through with the blood test just to be more accurate and for other testing as well.View Thread
