Here is a list of my symptoms and history;

June 10 - fooled around with a guy. He said he was "clean" We did not have intercourse only oral sex.

I had no signs or symtpoms of anything until around July 5 when I was undergoing a HUGE amount of stress. I basically had burning in my vulva area.

July 24 - Go to gyno. They test for STD's Chlamydia, Trich, Gonorrea, and Vaginitis/Yeast Infection. All tests come back negative.

I'm still under stress and a few days ago I had sex and immediately afterward I felt a lot of pain/burning. I went to the bathroom and "opened up" my labia to find a cluster of swollen white bumps. They are on the left side and sort of follow the curve of my lip. They are somewhat painful but mostly because I keep looking and checking them out. It's been two days and they haven't done anything different. I looked at pics of herpes online and I'm not sure that is what I have. Primarily because they are not scattered and not blister-like. AND, they aren't noticeable unless you stretch the skin. When I do a normal exam down there you can't see them. Only when I stretch out the skin. But it is sore. Could I possibly be irritating a gland or something? Please help. I'm tired of going to the Dr. but think a visit will be necessary soon. Also, can stress and anxiety cause swollen glands like that and what do they usually look like?
