Vaginal Discomfort

I've been to the Emergency Room 3 times this month(I recently moved to a new state so I do not have a regular OB/GYN here yet) The first visit, according to my symptoms, I was tested for gonorrhea & Chlamydia(negative), and was told I had BV, and was prescribed Flagyl capsules. The fourth day of taking the antibiotics my Labia Minora swelled(mostly the left side) and bled, and there was yellow stuff coming from 2 visible blisters on my Labia and from inside my vagina. I was also on the second day of my menstrual cycle at this time. The swelling went down within one hour and I didn't really have much pain so I went to the E.R. the next day to be re-examined and told the Doctor all of my symptoms and what had happened. She said it was highly unlikely that it was an allergic reaction to the medication, and that she saw no signs of STD's, but tested for genital herpes and that was negative. I have not had sexual intercourse in about 6 weeks, and was with the same person for 3 months before that, and had no symptoms until about a month ago. An STI could still a possibility I assume. The doctor sent me home with no explanation of what could be the problem. After 4 days I felt/saw a couple bumps that seemed more like skin colored hives on my Labia Majora on the left side, and was having pain around my Urethra and inside my vagina. I have had no pain during urination but have been feeling like I've needed to very frequently. I've noticed tiny white specs in my throat, on my tongue, on my skin around my buttocks, and on my Labia. I also discovered 2 small lumps next to each other on the left side of my anal cavity with yellow puss coming out of one. Later there was just a tiny amount of white stuff but another larger lump behind my anal cavity, I haven't noticed any fluid coming from that one. The bumps seem to go up and down. It seemed like all the symptoms in general would come and go from little discomfort to pain. Around 3 a.m. I woke up and could not get back to sleep because I was having abdominal pains on my lower right side, and my upper right side which was an inflammation/burning feeling. On my third that morning I explained all of this to a doctor at a different E.R. My menstrual cycle was complete and she examined me, didn't even glance at my rectum from what I observed, and said she saw nothing unusual but would run some tests. Everything for the Urine sample came back negative/normal. She said I ostill had a little BV'? but had no explanation for the blisters/swelling/other symptoms, I tried to ask more questions but didn't want to be too persistent or rude as I'm sure she was busy, she prescribed me with a cream this time instead. I've only used the cream once but now I'm noticing the area right around my Urethra looks infected maybe? It's very dry and has a little yellow crust. Any ides or educated guesses? Thank you!!

It is unclear by your description what the cause of this could be, and it sounds very stressful and uncomfortable to deal with, 

Please find an gynecologist in your area to schedule an appointment with. Some gynecologist specialize in vulva/vaginal disorders. 

Also, If you are near Corner Health Center and are 12-25 years old please schedule an appointment.  Corner does have gyn specialists in the clinic weekly.  

Why can't I get a tampon fully in? I can get it in 90%, but then no more before it gets to dry and won't budge (even on heaviest days). I've heard you can use KY Jelly as a lubricant, but I would never be able to ask anyone. Also, this is my second period and I've already wasted 5+ tampons using the smallest size I have.

There are many reasons it can be difficult to insert a tampon.  

You may want to try different positions for insertion.

It is not unusual to have difficulty putting in a tampon at the beginning. 

If you do not have a trusted adult or friend to ask about it and it continues to be a concern  please talk to your primary care provider or call Corner Health Center 

I'm on nexplonon and three day ago I had protected sex and he was rough and deep, now I have the cramps in my ovaries, did he bruise my insides?

It is possible that you are experiencing some irritation/bruising.  If the discomfort continues please schedule an appt with your primary care provider or Corner Health Center. 

I've had yellow green-ish discharge for a few months now and I haven't consulted my physician because I feel awkward talking about it and also with the pandemic going on. I've read it can be an STI but I've never had intercourse, oral or otherwise, so it might be an infection of sorts. When I do consult my doctor, what would the procedure be like (questions, tests, etc.). Any input would be very much appreciated, thank you.

When you talk to your doctor explain that you are having unusual discharge for the past few months.  

Typically a vaginal self swab and a urine test can determine if there is an infection like yeast or bacterial vaginosis.  Neither of these are sexually transmitted.  

Contact your primary care provider for an appointment or call the Corner Health Center for a telelvisit.   

I am late for my period (which is unusual), I have a lot more discharge than normal, my right lower abdomen hurts to press and I've been waking up to cramps in my right lower abdomen (I'm not pregnant). What could this mean please?

What you describe sounds lke it could be an infection.  Please schedule an appointment with you primary care provider or at Corner health center. 

If you have continued vaginal bleeding, vag discharge or any discomfort please schedule an appointment with your PCP or at Corner Health Center.

I am on the depo shot & I had sex three days ago & I am having vaginal bleeding. Is this normal? This has never happened to me before

Can I have splinters in my vagina after 10 years? When I was young I wanted to know what penetration felt like and used a small wooden stick a few times, it never hurt and i've seen a gynecologist many times, I'm fine, but it still bothers me. Could I have splinters that can't be noticed and should I explain my stupid actions to my doctor?

It would be unlikely that you would have unnoticed splinters after 10 years.  If it is something that bothers you then talk to your dr about it.   

Hello! I've VPH and one big genital wart, I haven't treat them because I'm scheduled to do chryoterapy next month, I haven't had any discomfort from it, but yesterday I started feeling very itchy, what are the symptoms to a vaginal infection? Do they have something to do with the HPV?

Genital warts can be itchy.  Itching can also be a sign of vaginal infection.  Symptoms of vaginal infection can also include abnormal vaginal discharge, change in odor or texture of vaginal discharge. 

If you believe you may have an infection schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center. 

I've been feeling discomfort in one side of the inside of my vagina and it feels like a scratch of some sort. I checked it out and found this thick looking, yellowish (discharge?) stuff there and don't know if that's normal. It appears only on one side and not the other. I have no discharge but the yellowish thick looking discharge is stuck there.

It is difficult to understand what you are describing without more information.

If the issue continues please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center. 

i had sex and used protection but it hurts when i go pee . what is wrong with me ?

Pain with urination could be from irritation or infection. 

 If it continues to hurt please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center for further evaluation and testing
