Can you give oral on a guy after he pulls out from the vagina if you have genital herpes?

What's the difference between a cyst and genital herpes? How would these two different things appear in the vagina?

What's the difference between a cyst and genital herpes? How would these two different things appear in the vagina?

Cyst vs gen. Herpes: The bartholin's glands (which secrete fluid that helps lubricate the vagina) are located on each side of the vaginal opening. If glands become obstructed, then fluid starts to back up into the gland, turns into bartholin's cyst (under skin lump).Genital herpes are usually small red bumps or tiny white blisters may appear. Cyst=lump under skin, genital herpes=small white blisters. Hope this helped :]. ...Read more

Genital Herpes: It is important to understand that although someone may not have visible sores or symptoms, they may still be infected by the virus and may transmit the virus to others. Some of the symptoms associated with this virus include:
blistering sores (in the mouth or on the genitals)
pain during urination (genital herpes)
and itching
you need to be seen by a physician and treated properly. ...Read more

I have small bumps around my vagina. They are the same color as the skin around them. My boyfriend is worried I have genital herpes. What is this?

I have small bumps around my vagina. They are the same color as the skin around them. My boyfriend is worried I have genital herpes. What is this?

No, But...: Any changes in the skin texture or color in and around the vagina is concerning. However, genital herpes presents with vesicles basically fluid filled blisters. There will also be redness and in most cases pain long the affected area. The only way to be certain is by visiting your local physician for an exam. Abstinence or safe sex with one partner is the best way to prevent sexual infections. ...Read more

I have what looks like genital herpes on the upper part of my vagina hidden underneath hair. They don't hurt but I popped one and it bled. What do I do?

I have what looks like genital herpes on the upper part of my vagina hidden underneath hair. They don't hurt but I popped one and it bled. What do I do?

Doubt herpes: Good news: unless this is a recurrence of a problem previously diagnosed as herpes, I doubt that's what you have. Lesions deeper in the skin that produce pus or blood rarely are herpes. Also, herpes outbreaks are relatively uncommon in hair bearing areas. My guess is folliculitis or pimples; folliculitis is especially likely if some lesions are around a hair. But see a doctor if uncertain. ...Read more

Once these genital herpes heal hw lng after should I wait 2 have sex I'm so scared I don't think after this experience my vagina will ever b the same?

Herpes is Frustratin: I understand your confusion and fear. Having herpes is very frustrating. You can be sexual at any time you want to be, but your partner will have to wear a condom to protect themselves from infection. They should get a herpes test to see if they are already infected or previously infected. Herpes viral shedding happens irregardless of sores or outbreaks. ...Read more

To get genital herpes you have to touch the infected area? A woman has an infected area above vagina, not on it. So as long as I don't touch that spot I should be ok? She's been on meds for it for 4 years. No outbreak for 2 years.

Not true: People with herpes can spread it even if there is no outbreak or if you do not touch the outbreak area. Use condoms for better protection, but even they are not 100%. Read this from the CDC:

Need an exam: Genital bumps and lesions are really difficult to diagnose without seeing them. Although most are benign, it's worth seeing a gynecologist to be sure that it's not herpes or some other condition. It's best to see the doctor when the lesion is most obvious, and don't pick it! ...Read more
