Y won't drs test for herpes? Exposed to it mths ago, now having sore low back, itch+tingle vagina area, swollen nodes groin, headache. Advice please.

The other way around: The question should be, "why should one test for genital herpes," instead of "why should one NOT test for genital herpes?"

Hard to say: Was sex overly rough? Was there lack of lubrication? Did you have any symptoms before hand? Any signs of yeast infection? Protection? There really isn't adequate info for us to tell you the cause or the best treatment. Take care. By the way, if this is not resolving fairly quickly or if this was a high risk situation - would recommend medical assessment. ...Read more

I used hair removal on private area and broke out really bad on one side of my vagina it hurts when I use the bathroom and glands are swollen why?
