    Yeast infection, flu, herpes????? HELP PLEASE!!!!
    Shoot4thestars08 posted:
    I am going to the doctors today or tomorrow but I'm just trying to get a better idea of what is going on with my body before hand because I'm seriously worried. I'm a 22 yr old female. I have a boyfriend who I have been sleeping with the past few months. His ex girlfriend recently told him she had herpes but we aren't sure if she was serious or trying to upset him. I have had what I thought was a yeast infection for two weeks now. I have been using vagisil the entire time but it burns when I put it on. My symptoms are burning, swolleness, redness, itching, and burning/irritation when I pee. Also I just noticed a white, creamy substance in my pee hole. I have also had flu like symptoms but no fever. There are no sores or bumps but a little bit of a smell. I think that is all. Sorry so long.

    some of your symptoms do sound like HSV....the burning, flu like symptoms, swolleness, and itching and irritation when you pee...

    except discharge from your urethra and any odor doesn't sound like HSV....

    Also, I don't believe HSV would bother you with no relief for an entire two first OB lasted about 10 days with the first few days being the worst then just discomfort...

    definitely make sure to get examed by a doctor to find out exactly what is going on with your body.

    I wish you all the best and hope you get a clean bill of health!

    This sounds more like a yeast infecttion but if you have not gone to the Doc yet then get a Type specific igg blood test for HSv 1 & 2. That way you will know if the old gf is just giving your new bf the gears or she really has herpes. Ask for a copy of your HSV test results and post them on here so we can help you figure out what your status is.

    It would be a good idea for both of you to get a complete STD testing done including Herpes. It is not only about what you have but what your bf mayh have as well. Let us know how things go so we can help you further if needed.
