I had sex about a week ago with a new partner and he ripped me on the lil piece of skin at the bottom of my vagina. it's been burning and swollen ever since, i have a dr appt today and they said it could be herpes. anyone in here have herpes and could help me out?
Tears in the perineum can take a while to heal. They actually cut that during delivery of a baby so it doesn't tear.Swelling is not necessarily a sign of herpes. Does it itch? Burn? I am assuming also that the dr will take a culture. They are pretty accurate when it come to testing a sore. (and usually pretty fast). If it is just a tear, you will heal up, and the doc may decide to throw a stich in, if it is deep enough.Good job on the getting to the Dr though! I wish more folks went...They usually have more answers than we do here on the board!
