I recently went through a terrible breakup, emotions and estrogen over the top. During this time I slept with a guy (status unknown) used a condom, but it broke and he did not finish.
A month later, I got a yeast infection (common) and successfully treated it with monistat. A week after I got a bad UTI, treated with bactrum and subsequently treated with Cipro due to kidney infection.
I was taking BC sprintec (3 month doses) at the time in which my BC stopped working...aka I was having a period every month instead of every three months and it was happening while on active pills.
After my period, I got intense vulva irritation, felt like a stabbing knife that would come and go throughout the day. Redness and swelling of vulva. No lesions. No blisters. No fever. No tingles.
I got tested for everything under the sun with the only hit was on my HSV IGM coming up...HSV 1 negative, HSV 2 at 1.16. My doctor told me it wasn't herpes bc the vulva pain and problems persisted for a period of four months on and off, mainly after my period. When I put baking soda on it, the pain sporadically went away.
So here I am today, five months of vulva pain, no lesions, baking soda helps mildly. Guessing I should get retested with the Western Blot? I'm running out of things it could be. I'm exhausted and in complete fatigue worrying over it.
Anyone have thoughts? Thank you!
