A couple days ago I had a burning like sensation down in my lady region. It only burned when I went to the bathroom so I thought that I had a UTI. I was out of town when I realized the pain, so I had to wait till I got home to go to an appointment with my doctor. A couple days later I went to my doctor June 26th, 2013. I told the doctor what I had so she looked. She immidiatly said that I had herpes, not test no culture exam and she didn't even take a swab of the area or do a blood test. She just assumed automatically that it was herpes. My doctor told me that she is going to give me medicine for it. She prescribed me Valtrex, and said to take 2 pills twice a day for 10 days then I would have to take 1 pill the rest of my life. These pills are 500 milligrams each, meaning that I take 100 milligrams in the morning and 1000 milligrams at night. Don't you think that is a lot for someone my age?? I am only 20 and I weigh 110, are these pills going to kill some organs or something?? After doing some research and my friend doing some research we started talking about it. We looked up pictures and stories. I don't have what the pictures look like, it only itches in my area. I read that there have been several misdiagnosis' with herpes. People have been told they have it and they don't actually have it. I'm going to schedule an appointment Monday for the soonest time possible to get a blood test and swabs done. I really don't think that I have herpes. How could I have it and not my bf?? Any ideas on what I could actually have??Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
