Unlikely : Herpes usually presents with lumps/bumps, which are painful. Don't really understand the issue with bleeding and not being able to see the vaginal wall. The differential diagnosis that accompanies painful intercourse (also know as dyspareunia) is vast. Anything from infection to endometriosis can be at work here. ...Read more

Herpes is expected to be painful, however, a lot of bleeding is not common unless you have further irritated the area with picking or scratching.

Blood from the rectum is usually a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure. ...Read more
