Herpes?! I had sex with a new partner,the first was tested.

I am very worried about Herpes..A little over a month ago, I had sex with a new partner (I've only been with to, the first was tested and was clean). And now, I have two small, painless bumps in the crease where my thighs begin that won't go away! I am so paranoid, a new bump just showed up on the opposite side, it is also painless. They look like pimples..I am so worried! I recently had a culture done, and it came up negative, so I have no idea what it is..Also, there is thick, white, discharge that doesn't really smell.
Oh, and a couple days ago I had sex for the first time in about a month, and it was a little painful and I bled..I'm not sure if that was supposed to happen or not.
Any opinions? Could it be herpes? Yeast infection?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause for the infection/bumps/pimples that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. If you have come in contact with an infected person (with or without outbreak), look out for development of any new symptoms. Painful intercourse and bleeding during or after intercourse could also suggest infective cause, cervicitis, cervical erosion/dysplasia etc. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. The tests done for antibody detection can take upto 3 months (as body can take upto 3 months to produce immune response). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
