The thing is. I was so happy when I left the drs office because I felt so much better. My vagina felt normal again, out of no where. Is this possible with herpes? Can you feel irritated then feel perfectly fine before the bumps start to form? I’m so scared. Someone give their opinion please.
I'd say, let your doctor be your guide, not the Internet. There are OK websites with information (such as https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm) but really, no website and no medical chat room can tell you what you have, the doctor's swab can. Good luck, and try not to be frightened. Herpes is no death sentence, though sometimes people act like it is.
Did he test you for other STDs? Yeast? Bacterial vaginosis?
It could be herpes, but it could be irritation from you looking at it, a yeast infection, BV, another STD, etc., etc.
A person can be totally trustworthy and still have an STD that they don't even know they have. Most of the time, STDs don't give symptoms, so unless someone is testing regularly, they may not know they have it.
If you don't know what testing you had done, call the doctor and ask. I'd suggest getting testing for other STDs like chlamydia and gonorrhea, and things like yeast and BV.
