I am 21 years of age and female. Everytime I have sex, what seems to be lymph nodes become swollen in my neck and groin area both. It hurts really bad.
They do not swell on their own, only after I have sex.
Also, I have Genital Herpes and Cervicitis.
I was diagnosed with Cervicitis in February of this year, and the doctor thought maybe it would go away on it's own.
But I don't believe it did.
I have had Genital Herpes since July 2007.
I don't have cervical cancer.
I had bacterial vaginosis and a yeast infection in August 2009, but they were both really bad because I didn't know i had them for awhile.
I am pretty sure the BV is back again, as when i take out a tampon, it smells pretty fishy (sorry for the TMI)
&& I didn't have Chlamydia/Gonorrhea when she checked in February.
When I have sex, my vagina becomes extremely inflamed and pretty much closes up and cannot be penetrated.
So, I was wondering if all of these problems could be caused by the bacterial vaginosis?
Because I did have painful sex before I got treated for BV and the yeast infection, && it didn't hurt as bad as it did before.
