Second ever OB at perineum?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


This is my first ever post so I'm both nervous and excited for the support that can be provided.


First of all, I had a confusing introduction into contracting herpes. I contracted it in America, with a local doctor telling me for certain following examination that I had herpes. I had symptoms both on my genitals and also at my mouth - so presuming HSV 2? The doctor also took a swab for testing at the time. A week later I got a phone call to say the test came back positive and to collect the result sheet, which I did. When I returned to my home country my doctor could not understand the result sheet which I had, explaining how the terminology was different so she wasn’t willing to agree to the fact that I had herpes – you can imagine my upset and confusion! She asked the next time I experience any symptoms to come to see her and she would test me again.


It’s been nearly two years 3 years since my first OB and I have never noticed a noticeable outbreak until now – and even at that I’m not sure. It seems to be one large inflamed area at my perineum and Dr Google told me that it could be a Herpes OB. It is very uncomfortable, sore to touch, stingy, but doesn’t seem to be blistering as I have previously experienced. Can anyone help me?


Thank you in advance x
