I have Interstitial Cystitis. I have been diagnosed through a cystoscopy where Hunner's ulcers were found. I had burning pain localized around my urethra, and sometimes had terrible burning pain, which I later found out was a flare up. My flares are very rare now, but I still have slight urethra burning daily. I also feel the need to urinate very often, and when I do, it often feels like I have urine stuck in my urethra. It is very uncomfortable, but not painful very often. I am able to have sex with my boyfriend almost regularly without any pain. I just need extra lubrication.
For no reason at all, I started to freak out that I might have an STD and I was misdiagnosed with IC. I don't recall any STD tests being performed, and the diagnosis came pretty quickly. However, I had hunner's ulcers in my bladder. So it has to be IC, right? I know herpes can lay dormant for years asymptomatic, but can other STDs be asymptomatic? I have become more worried about this recently because I have had some itching on the outer labia, mostly around the clitoral region (not actually the clitoris, just outer labia near it). I have some slight burning also, like a very mild icy hot feeling. I have noticed that shaving daily alleviated this, so I thought that it was hair regrowth. I have no discharge really at all. When I do, it is a very thin whitish/clear discharge. I had sex with my boyfriend last night, and everything was fine until after. The vaginal entrance, especially the bottom towards the anus was sore. More than usual.
I have been with only one person for almost two years, and I'm pretty certain he hasn't cheated. Is it possible to have an STD lay dormant for two years that I got from someone else? I have no herpes symptoms or discharge. Could I have a yeast infection with no discharge? I'm really worried about getting tested and having a disease and my boyfriend not believing that I didn't cheat or be mad that I wasn't tested before him.
