A few questions

Recommended Posts

I had unprotected sex about 5 days ago.

I started to notice a clumpy white vaginal discharge, no odor , a stuffy nose on one side , sneezing & maybe a fever (not sure). Is this a sign of a new herpes infection ? I don't see any sores, but am paranoid about every thing that feels tingly or off. I appreciate any feedback. I should also mention that a past blood test has shown hsv 1, but not sure what location , I've never had an outbreak. Also paranoid about HIV , of course. It's killing me to have to wait at least a month for testing . Had other tests to swab the discharge. Hoping to get results back tomorrow. Again , thank you for your time .

Thank you for your response. She took a swab of the discharge to test for other stds. I don't know if I'm just being paranoid & feeling really guilty for making a stupid decision, but every new symptom is making me paranoid. I obsessively look for any signs of sores , I feel irritated & red in the vaginal area, I had cold symptoms & I think a slight fever. She said she couldn't determine if it was herpes unless there was an obvious sore, so I will probably have to wait at least a month to get a blood test. I know hsv 1 is in my system somewhere, I'm afraid for my health if I get both. Maybe I'm being overly anxious but I feel ashamed & scared.
