In brief: Get tested

A biopsy or culture of the lesion(s) or a simple blood test cab be definitive.
Not all people respond 100% to the anti-viral herpes medications. Best wishes.

In brief: Please see your gyn

Cultures and blood antibodies can be done, sometimes if you do indeed have herpes it can develop resistance to the meds.
