Since this 'scare to get checked' has been circling around my mind, i have been spending countless hours scourig the internet for info. Nearly four years ago, someone advised me to get tested, as he had done so. I did, and nothing. Last year, I gave birth to the most beautiful baby girl. Yesterday I called my gyno to understand what tests were run on my pap smears and blood (because they check to make sure the baby is not at risk and such) She told me my tests (but not sure if my blood, specifically) were checked for all STDs including herpes. But I can't help but believe I have it - for MONTHS (almost 5) there has been a flaking, yellow crusting spot - no bumps, but very small cuts or fissures in the little dent of the upper lip (below the nose) - but it seemed like it was connected to a cut I had gotten at the base of my nose due to winter months and blowing, etc.) Furthermore, I have been getting what I believe to be yeast infections more often. Six or seven since becoming pregnant with my daughter in Feb 03. Through my research on the web, I read that herpes is often mistaken for yeast infections. Is this common? Has anyone misdiagnosed H by writing it off as a yeast infection? Please help, this is pressing on my heart and I want to be more certain of what I'm talking about before I speak with the man I love and want to spend the rest of my life with. (though I am going to the doctor friday and will ask him to go).
