If my uti test comes back clear and my vagina is still sore, how can I get a pelvic exam being so sore swollen ?? Protrusion from vagina. Sensitive :(
UTI is an infection: of the bladder, not the vagina. A clear UTI doesn't mean you don't have a vaginal infection. If you're too sore to tolerate a pelvic exam with a speculum, tests for vaginitis can be done using a Q-tip to collect a specimen. If you have a vaginal infection, it can be treated. Once the swelling has resolved, a thorough pelvic exam can then be done. Best wishes! Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Something is going on to create this issue, and the "brown stuff" is peculiar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: It won't. Herpes lesions follow a normal course of development and healing. Sometimes the lesion can be subdued, shortened, and suppressed. Zovirax ointment, Valtrex (valacyclovir) loading dose, or laser treatment at very first prodrome can all be successful at this. I have many "usual" recurring patients who come in at first sign and laser treatment does wonders! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
