On April 5, I received only oral sex from a partner for less than 2 min. My partner is known to have oral HSV infections; I did make note of some white spots he had on his upper lip after discussion with him he has not had a cold sore since Sept 2020.
On April 16 (10-11 Days after encounter) I began experiencing lower back pains, leg pains, accompanied with vaginal/buttocks burning, itching, and tingling. These symptoms lasted for a day; however, the vaginal pains continued. I noticed the tip of a pencil sized clear bumps on my clitoris; although I am experiencing clitoral pain, my clitoris is not painful to touch. This is all accompanied with a heavy thick white vaginal discharge. I had two Doctor’s inspect my vagina, the first did not note anything however took a swab of my vaginal area for an HSV-1/HSV-2 PCR Test and ordered me a HSV-1/HSV-2 IGG and IGM test. The second claims that she noted a vulvar ulcer, although, I do not believe what she saw was an Ulcer as that part of my vagina is always red; however, as she swabbed for a test it was extremely painful to touch. Today, April 19, I am still experiencing burning/tingling sensations however, they come and go throughout the day and there are no visible lesions or bumps. I have always tested negative for HSV-1/HSV-2.
I do have Small Fiber Neuropathy in which causes me to experience some of these symptoms on a much smaller scale; however, after my second COVID-19 vaccination on April 12, these symptoms presented itself. There are many variables here.
1.Do my symptoms sound like a herpes infection?
2.Is it possible for herpes symptoms to present themselves after 10-11 days after encounter?
3.Can herpes present itself as a single ulcer?
4.Is it possible to have a herpes infection without any visible lesions/sores?
5.Since my partner kissed me multiple times prior to performing oral sex on me, wouldn’t my primary infection be my lips?
6.If this is a true infection wouldn’t sores present itself by now?

4/26 Update: I received 1 of 3 cultures performed on 4/18 on the areas of what the Dr suspected was an ulcer/broken skin, less than 48 hours after symptoms began. The culture was for HSV Culture & Typing. Results were Not Isolated. Today, approximately one week later I am still experiencing vaginal burning especially my clitoris and the opening of my vagina. However, no lesions or bumps. Will keep you posted on my other cultures.

4/27 Update: I received 2 of 3 cultures performed on 4/18, this Doctor swabbed all areas of my vagina including clitoris. The culture came back Not Isolated. I thought he had tested me for IGG; however, he tested me for HSV-1/2 IGM both came back negative. I will be seeking an IGG test soon.

4/30 Update: I received 3 of 3 cultures performed by a Dermatologist on 4/19. The culture came back Not Isolated. On 4/27 my PCP tested me for HSV PCR DNA (on blood) it came back negative for both HSV-1 and HSV-2. On 4/29 I was tested for HSV IGG both came back negative for HSV-1 and HSV-2.
My apologies for the multiple updates, as it has been some time now since my first post. My current symptoms are clear bumps have reappeared on clitoris and vaginal tingling/burning that comes and goes. My clitoris is not painful to touch; however, I experience pain from time to time throughout the day. Please note, I have not had vaginal sex in two years and prior to this experience I last received oral sex in August and was tested since then and all of my tests including HSV1/2 were negative.
