I have been with my BF for 5 months now and have a very active sex life-lots and lots of oral. I am a realitively healthy 32 year old girl and am very aware of my body and any changes that occur. last week I thought I had a yeast infection and some sores on the outside of my vagina appeared. This seemed unusual and it was not going away - hurting when I would go to the washroom. My bf and I went to emergeny and the dr. said that it was herpies - did a swab and do not have the results back as of yet. I have an appt with my dr. this week but so unsure and have so many questions. Is it possible that I had this well before i started dating him? I never have had any symptions before and it has been 5 months. He does get the rare coldsore-once a year or less.....would you think this is type 1 or 2?
