Have you been tested for a yeast infection?
How often do the cuts come, and how long do they last?
Has a doctor checked the cuts and done a herpes test? Thank you.
I suspect that the cuts are due to yeast infection. Sometimes women get tiny cuts like that, and we don't find a good explanation.
Genital herpes might be a possibility, except that genital herpes can occur once a month, but not twice.
Yeast infections are common, and often brought on by some condition that makes yeast grow. This can be hormonal change, and the birth control pill might be responsible.
The way to be sure would be to see your doctor for a yeast test and perhaps also a herpes culture.
In case it is yeast, it's usually easy to cure, although it may come back. Perhaps if you stopped the pill, the cuts would stop coming.
I also don't think it's herpes.
You could try the Monistat. If everything clears, that's pretty good proof that it was a yeast infection.
