Alright, well, here's my story.
About a month ago, on my way back up to school I got really sick really fast with flu-like symptoms (mild chills that I didn't make any better by not grabbing a blanket out of the back and warming up, kind of an idiot here sometimes), I threw up once in the bathroom at the rest stop, and once I got home I passed out for a while. Woke up the next day with a yeast infection (I wrote these instances off as follows: I was in a car for 8 hours, so I got carsick. I'm overly dramatic, so I assumed the worst and I think made myself sicker, and ugh, stupid of me, I didn't change my tampon for like EVER and it got a little, er, damp in my panties... thus the yeast infection. Stupid, but, I'm uh... stupid sometimes.) Anyways, my vagina itched mildly and there was discharge. My skin peels a lot down there (also on my nipples, is that normal btw?) when I get those infections, and in peeling back skin that I shouldn't have been messing with, I made a little part of my vulva bleed and eventually scab over. The flu-like symptoms and itching disappeared in about 30 hours, I didn't break out in lesions or sores (used a mirror to stare so hard at my vagina that I think I diagnosed myself with five other sicknesses, at once even Toxic Shock Syndrome- rushed to the health care center on campus before I realized that I was being foolish) but the seed of doubt was already planted.
I kind of grew complacent after that- until now. A month after, I've been experiencing an EXTREMELY faint burning in the vaginal region that crops up intermittently- for four hours I'll be fine, and then like oh man there it is again. I've been peeing a lot more now too. However, again, I don't have any visible sores. Let me say, my vagina has never in the past acted up this much. I've had maybe four yeast infections ever, about 2 UTIs, and a painless boil from constant masturbating (skin gets clogged down there too yeaaah). I wouldn't be so worried, but about 10 days before the flu-like symptoms showed up, I had sex/gave brief oral to a guy who I've been totally dying to have sex with for, like, a year (he didn't go down on me, so that rules out type 1). He's a decently good friend of mine, but really actually kind of mean to girls and semi-promiscuous (not REALLY bad, but a charmer- you know the type. I refresh his facebook page now every five minutes and think REALLY, NO REALLY, YOU CAN'T HAVE THAT!)
So, I put two and two together. I'm sorry for this long-winded explanation and I am not going to rely on my self-diagnoses, I don't want to spread it if I have it, and I need some peace of mind.
I have done extensive reading about herpes. I know that you can still have it without having sores, or maybe I have a minuscule one somewhere and I'm passing it off as a shaving bump. I don't know. To me, my symptoms seem pretty indicative of it.
Thank you so much for your support <3
