Hi- I just found this site and I am desperate so I am posting. I apologize for the length of this post and I warn it is kind of explicit. I think I might have herpes. I had unprotected sex 9 months ago and gave oral sex to someone 6 months ago and the day before yesterday I noticed some pimple like protrusions around my vagina . They arent sore, they dont itch, they arent fluid filled (I scratched one and all it did was bleed a tiny bit) I had them for only a day or two and they have almost all dissapeared. None are on my actual vagina but are on the skin to the left and right of it (but not above it) where underwear would rub. I figured it might have something to do with my underwear rubbing because I wore pants that were extrememly tight in that area this weekend and none of these bumps apear where underwear wouldnt rub. Now I am extra concerned because now it looks like I am getting a cold sore on my lip. Now Im really upset and worried. I was planning on going to planned parenthood but I read up on herpes tests and it says that they take a culture of the inside of the bumps.. and there is nothing inside of my bumps to culture, they are dry. They are also not red like the pitures I saw utmaybe a little pink like a pimple but thats it. Instead of being clear or blister looking like the pictures I saw these look more like ant bites or pimples. Also does PP do blood tests for herpes? If so how much does it cost? I dont know if this is a cold sore I am getting on my lip but if it is could it just be a coincidence? I am so scared and upset and would be forever grateful for a response.. thank you for your time.

even if *you* don't think your bumps fit the bill, you could still be wrong, in which case, it is still a darn good idea for you to get them inspected at PP. If they aren't herpes, they could still be something else. While you are there, please get a full STD screen since you had unprotected sexual intercourse, too.
