Yes,virgin before. We had sex less than 10 times (Feb 2-March 18) 7 unprotected. 3 were. All oral on him was unprotected, even if the sex was protected. Never received oral or finger. This was my only partner. No spit lube. I brought lube. Two bumps and once I started putting iodine it exploded. Wouldnt say hurt; it was uncomfortable. Didnt hurt when doctor pressed. Weird to walk because it started to come up on the top of my vagina and crevices of my leg/vagina lip. The iodine might of irritated my skin. Swab is HSV culture w/ typing using monoclonal antibodies immunoflouresence.
Gave him unprotected oral for a total of 15 minutes everytime we had sex. (10 mins before,5 mins after and aggressively) I don’t have any sores orally, which I would expect if he had GHSV-1. He said the last time he had sex was highschool and we are college freshmen. Could be lying.
March 10: last sexual encounter before bumps
March 16: two bumps
March 18: Sex again
March 20: Swabbed and started iodine swabs,stopped sex
March 20-23: More iodine and more bumps
March 23: culture came back positive. Lab sheets say collection 3/21 results report 3/22
March 25: Started low dose anti viral (everyday for a year)
March 27: In morning,every bump was gone, only red skin left behind. Stopped taking them after March 27. Skin returns back to normal, everything is gone.
April 3: One firm pearly bump on inside of my vagina lip. I panicked and took the medication again and it suddenly disappeared after 5 days.
No scabbing for either. Just disappeared.
Doctor really thinks it’s molluscum or syphilis because some were dimpled and flesh colored and he does sports. A bit before vagina outbreak I had one small bump on my asshole I thought it was an ingrown. It went away after a week by itself. So now she’s scaring me saying it might be syphilis.
If he took a blood test and it was neg would you doubt the swab?
Is it in semen?
Would you be willing to look at pictures if I paid for a consult? Or no?
