Expert Q & A Answers About genital herpes symptoms
I have some little red bumps in my groin area. They aren’t inside my vagina or on the lips...is it possible that I have genital warts?
The last time I had sexual contact with anyone was about 7 months ago. I've never had sexual intercourse; however, I have performed oral sex and had it performed on me (without a dental dam). I have developed a mild itch and redness on my labia majora and I noticed one or two hard, painless bumps on my labia minora. Do I have herpes?
I think I have genital herpes...I have a rash on my legs, and sometimes on the head of my penis. I am not married yet and I never had any kind of intercourse, oral sex or genital rubbing...so I don’t know how I got these symptoms. I shower daily, and I’m neat and clean. But I live in a hot and sweaty climate, and my legs get really sweaty during the summer. Could that be the cause?
My boyfriend and I have been together for almost two years. Before we had sex for the first time, we both got tested by our doctors for STDs and all the tests came back negative. I also just saw my gynecologist for my yearly exam and all the tests came back normal. This week, I noticed a bump that looked like a pimple on the outside of my vagina. It caused some pressure so I popped it. Now it is healing. Should I be concerned about herpes, or was this just a pimple?
I recently found some small blisters in my vaginal area. They’re becoming painful. Do I have a yeast infection, or is it something else...like maybe herpes?
I recently noticed white, raised and pointy growths in my lower labia and anus area that hurt to touch. (I think my mom and sister had these when they were my age...are they hereditary?) They look like whiteheads. I checked online to see if my symptoms looked like an STD and genital warts are my best guess...but they’re not gray or pinkish, and they’re not cauliflower-shaped. My boyfriend doesn’t have any symptoms at all, but we’re a little worried. Do you know what these could be?
After having sex with me, my partner got bumps on his penis, but I don’t have symptoms...could it be an STD?
A guy I had sex with told me he’d gotten some pimple-like bumps all over his penis. The bumps hurt until he popped them. He also said it hurt to pee. He’s had sex with other people, but he only got the bumps after he had sex with me. We both got tested for STDs and we’re both negative...but I’m concerned. Could something else have caused those bumps?
