Today is April 28th and March 1st is when my nightmare started. Primary doctor treats me for yeast infection, and bacteria infection without even doing any test. I go back a week later still not feeling any better. She looks at me again, and I have to point out to her where I am hurting (burning, red...but not blisters etc...She looks at me and tells me I have herpes. Throws a script of valtrex at me and acts like its no big deal. So, I go to an obgyn, who does all std testing and nothing, negative. But puts me on a powerful antibiotic that send me into yest infection over drive then my skin really swells up and I feel like I have sores in my skin. So, two days later I go to the ER and they say, you have major yeast and my symptoms sound like herpes but there are no visual signs. The treat me for yeast and my skin does it better but I still have sores in under the folds of my skin. I'm taking valtrex off and on during this whole time and can not tell if its helping or just time is doing its thing. The ER also did blood work and it showed that I tested positive for hsv1 but neg for hsv2. I'm thinking if you have hsv1 on your genitals, its really hard to diagnose but it doesn't always have the blisters (big ugly ones) So, now I am going to a female obgyn and I am hoping she can help me. I tested negative twice for herpes through the swab procedure. But, this new doctor basically took a deep chunck of my skin out so waiting to see how this test go. I mean, do they think they are doing us a favor by not telling us we have it. I know why herpes is and has to be such a climbing the charts std, because most Doctors don't know enough about both types...so ppl that get tested negative, who prob do carry the virus, go on living as if they don't and more and more come into contact with it. The education about the herpes is not realistic either, ugly pictures aren't always the truth about it and that makes it the frowned upon std, so nobody talks about it, always ashamed and therefore no communication, so lets just all look the other way, and pass it! Really, our nation is not being protected at all from herpes...and it is life changing! So sad. I'm sorry for those of you such as myself just feel so lost.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
