Im terribly scared about this. Im 17 and im with a steady partner. about a week ago i got a few spot like things near the top of my pubic hair, one on the lip of my vagina and one on my upper leg

They dont hurt
It doesnt hurt to wee
Theres no stomach pains or anything like that
They had a tiny dimple in the middle and white puss came out when squeezed...

On the internet it seems that every spot pimple of blister in the genital reason is linked automatically to genital herpes

Just want to here some advice....?!

  • probably so...you may have been faithful...but...well....ask him if he has anything. He may not know, actually, but he may know. Men love to lie about this, too. That is one good reason to always use a condom, and now you should insist on it with all of your future partners so you don't give it to them or catch hepatitis or hiv...which are life threatening.If you still have the blister, you can have it analyzed by your doctor or Planned Parenthood is good. If the blisters have dried up by the time you get to a doctor, you will need a blood test, otherwise it can come back negative and give you a false sense that everything is okay. You might not have pain now, but it may come intense and achey in a few days in your back where the virus settles. You might not have anyway to get to a doctor since you are so young, but you can assume that he did give it to you, most likely. When you get pregnant, you will know by then with the recurrences or you may need a blood test to be sure because you cannot deliver vaginally if you have an outbreak. It's part of the consequences of sex, unfortunately.
