This all started around 5 days ago, I felt what i thought was a yeast infection so i purchased an over the counter medication for it. After i applied it i felt an extreme burning and itching that kept me up all night. The next day when i urinated the pain was so horrible it brought me to tears. I called my gyno who said to apply Cortaid and take Benadryl. This didn't help and as my symptoms got worse i went to the ER. They ran tests and said i have a UTI and something called Cystocele. He found this strange because i'm only 22 and have never been pregnant. He prescribed some antibiotics and pain meds. Two days later i felt worse... so i went to see my gyno who took one look and said "herpes" i was devastated. I've only have 2 partners and the most recent one for 3 years now. Well i called today and the results from the culture taken at the ER were negative so were waiting on the blood test from the gyno ... im still in extreme pain even on Percocet and i don't know what to do... I don't see how herpes is even possible. Any input is appreciated.
