Genital Herpes
I am 24 years old and about 6 years ago, had a blister in my vaginal area which was itchy and sore. 5 Years later I had another blister which my doctor said was genital warts. He did not test me and I think it is herpes because I keep having much less severe outbreaks, especially after my period. I did an HIV test which was negative, but do the recurrences mean I am HIV positive? Please help.

It does sound like herpes. This does tend to be recurrent and this does not mean that you are HIV positive.
