Have headaches, body aches, hot flashes, redness in vagina, burning sensation, frequent urination, white spots. Tested for UTI. Is it herpes?

On Monday I started having headaches, body aches, hot flashes. then on Tuesday on the outside of my vagina it is red and burning a little bit, i pee a lot but does not hurt at all. What could it be? Already been tested for UTI and Yeast infection, both negative. Then I went to the doctor and she thinks I have herpes so I am getting tested right now it but it will not be back till NEXT WEEK! The doctor said there was bruising down in my vagina.. but I don't know why because I have not had sex in over 6 weeks. When I looked down there it looks like a blood clot. I did see three small white looking dots but that is why she thinks it is herpes. I just need your opinion on what else I should do? She also gave me medicine just in case I do have herpes to take for the next 7 days. Please help.

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

Herpes is easily diagnosed through a physical examination, and a confirmation is given once the laboratory reports a positive result. So, as your doctor has already physically examined you, and suspects herpes, the diagnosis is almost 50 % made. All you can do now is to follow the treatment regimen strictly, avoid sexual contact in all forms and maintain good personal hygiene.

Once the laboratory reports a result, if positive, all you have to do is to continue the medications, and if it reports a negative result, an elaborate screening for all sexually transmitted infections will be required.

Unfortunately, from your side, currently there is nothing more you can do. Wishing you lots of luck a speedy recovery. Please practice safe sexual intercourse in the future.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications at: . I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
