It's a long story, but I noticed lumps/warts around the opening of my vagina.
I immediately thought it was HPV and I went to the doctor's to have it looked at the next day.
it was sore and such, the doctor looked and said he didn't think it was HPV.
anyway he took some tests, said I had a minor yeast infection and some sort of strep bacteria was in there (the same as in strep throat)
so he gav eme antibiotics and monostat.
so I took that, but the lumps didn't go away.
I decided to go to a different doctor, the sexual health clinic at my college.
She looked and said that it was HPV.
I've already been infected with cervical HPV and I have had a LEEP treatment and that's all good now.
but she said this is HPV, and she did the nitrogen treatment, I got that twice.
anyway all the while I have been having sex with my boyfriend and it is always painful and sometimes bleeds.
she took other STD tests, and they all came back negative.
anyway the las time I saw her she noticed leisions.
like little rip type things around the opening.
and those are what are really painful during sex.
she took a herpes swab, and I havn't gotten the results back from that cause the clinics been closed over winter and I was out of town.
anyway, what could the rips be?
she said they don't look like herpes, but she took the swab just to be safe.
i've had unprotected sex with my boyfriend since.
he has no symptoms of either HPV or herpes (althought he definitely has HPV now, but he didn't give it to me)
I kind of think that the rips (which havn't healed and it's been over a month) are due to tender skin of the HPV warts (which are large flesh coloured lumps) ripping open, and one in particular is kind of "hidden" underneath one of the warts in one area, and perhaps due to the moisture in my vagina it is preventing it from healing fully.
I have no idea.
and I'm really frustrated because i've been dealing with this for over two months and nothing has gotten even remotely better, i've spent alot of money of treatments that have done nothing.
What do you guys think?
