I had unprotected sex three months ago. Since then, I have had no sores or lesions but constant white, milkish discharge. I have been tested for everything but herpes and now I'm wondering if maybe that's what I have, though I thought herpes came and went. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thanks.
Only a doctor can correctly diagnose the problem, but what you're describing doesn't sound like a herpes outbreak. Abnormal discharge is generally associated with some form of vaginal infection, while herpes is characterized by small sores or lesions that appear in the same spot (or very close to it), blister, scab or remain as open sores, and then heal over, all over the course of 10-12 days. Unprotected sex can cause the transmission of bacteria, viruses, and other organisms from one person to the other. A test at a gynecologist's office is the best way to find out.

yea i had the same kind of discharge but i later had sores and tested positive for herpes. But that is not to get you scared...my doctor told me the sores were herpes but the discharge was a bacterial infection...it was a simple 7 day medication she gave me and it is gone now for weeks! I hope that helps!
A discharge has never been a symtom of mine. Some woman have a heavery discharge than others. When I was pregnant I had the same thing and I thought there was something wrong with me, but I was fine. I myself woudn't worry unless you are itchy,and it has a strong odor..You could have a yeast infection...If you have a yeast infection it will be a thick cottage cheese like substance. If you are still worried just go get a check up and explain whats going on..Hope I helped..
