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 relatively 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 clinic and the doctor said that it was herpes.
I have an appointment with my doctor this week, but I am uncertain and I have so many questions. Is it possible that I had herpes before I started dating this guy? I've never had any symptoms before and it's been five months. He does get the rare coldsore (once a year or less). Do you think this is likely to be Type 1 or Type 2?
