Not herpes: Unlikely to be herpes. Having said that, is the man you're referring to at risk for contracting herpes in your opinion? If so, then, of course, there's no guarantee that he couldn't have herpes unless he were specifically testing....but it doesn't sound like it from your description.

Razor burn: No reason to be worried about herpes in this situation. Lesions seen with herpes are usually small fluid filled bumps.

Vaginal discharge: Sometimes vaginal discharge has a green hue to it. Typically it's not a sign of infection so long as you don't have any itching or foul smell associated with it. Regardless, however, if you're concerned you may want to see a physician and get checked out for any possible infection, including possible stds. I haven't heard of birth control causing a change in the skin color of the vagina.
