As an update:
It’s Monday so we’re hoping to get my partner’s swab back today, but again meanwhile we feel pretty certain they have been infected orally. Over the weekend I bit the bullet and paid out of pocket to get a genital swab for an hsv pcr test. Will wait for that.
I continue to have burning all over my vulva, inside and out. The itching seems gone at this point but the burn is persistent with any contact–underwear, fingers, etc. It is distinctly not a tingle, but rather the same kind of burning as I’ve had when I tried using over the counter Monistat for yeast years ago.
Continue to have no visible symptoms. No lesions, bumps, rash, or even redness anywhere in the “boxer shorts area.”
The urgent care Dr put me on both flucanazole and terconazole just in case (couldn’t test for yeast because the lab charged a few hundred for it).
If nothing changes next week once I have insurance I will do the full gamut of sti and sexual health testing, this is all just frightening and devastating. Not to mention physically extremely uncomfortable and painful.
