Customer Question
that day sexual contact with...
Suffer from chronic yeast infections. After just recovering that day sexual contact with one night stand. No intercourse. 2 days after genital to genital contact after sitting in chair most of day. Tingling on entire vagina. Went away in one day. 5 days later small cut feeling on labia. Can't leave it alone and feel like I may be irritating the area. I can't see anything on visual inspection and neither could partner. No ulcers or bumps. Scared of STD

It sounds like you have recurrent herpes. You need to serve gyn for testing. Your symptoms may not be yeast infection at all. A culture of the lesion can be done. Bloodwork can bed one to determine past exposure to type 1 or 2

Thanks for your response. I've been tested for herpes within the past year. Have been with the Same partner for ten years until recently. Only new contact was with this one night stand within week. I know that my last partner of ten years is clean as he's been checked. I'm more worried about a new exposure than previous as I had been tested and negative.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. K., MD replied 2 years ago

Yes. That is would be my point. It sounds like you have contracted hsv recently

Sorry I thought by recurrent you meant that I've had this before or an outbreak before and the yeast for the last few months wasn't yeast but herpes. My exposure was this week not months ago.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. K., MD replied 2 years ago

Yes. That's exactly what I meant. I don't thinkmits yeast at all.
