So I wanna know what people think. I think I may have herpes

So I wanna know what people think. I think I may have herpes. I went to my OBGYN today and because I was having severe pain in the vaginal and anal region. She said she wasn't sure that it could be herpes because it didn't look like a typical case of herpes so they tested me for a bunch of stuff and I'm waiting for the results. I'm terrified right now. I've been retracing everyone I've had sex with recently and it seems impossible for me to get it. I have a current partner right now but prior to him I was with a man a year ago. After contacting the man from a year ago, he told me he got tested after we had sex and he was clean. Then I asked my bf who also hadn't had sex in a year prior to me. He said after he had sex with the last girl before me, he got tested and was clean. I understand they could be lying but I believe they are telling the truth. Therefore I have no idea how I would get this. I didn't develop any sores or bumps but I do have cuts that started a couple days ago. I'm wondering if these cuts were from rough sex. The reason I think this is because after I had sex with my bf and went to pee, I noticed I was bleeding a bit and that wasn't there before. In the past I've gotten cuts from rough sex. I also had some pain after sex too. With all that, does it seem like I have herpes? Also how do you cope with having herpes? I'm feeling very down about this whole situation.

Its hard to say. When you get tested for stds most of the time you have to ask for the HSV and HIV. I have had to. I would just wait until you get your results to see if you do or you dont. In the meantime try not to touch the area because it can spread pretty easily if it is HSV.

@19Smile **** ive been touching the area. i got a swab test. after talking with other people, some who have it or know people who have it, say that it doesnt seem like herpes. the only symptom i have is cuts and after googling pictures of herpes cuts or sores it looks nothing like mine. i konw google isnt the best source for info but since im waiting for my results ive been super anxious about it

That’s completely understandable to be anxious just know no matter what.. you are still you and nothing changes that.
