thanks for posting,

Your question is difficult to handle given that you mentioned the fact that you have no medical insurance and want only OTC. It seems to me that you have a pelvic diseases and most probably an infection which will definitely require antibiotics and unfortunately most antibiotics are prescription medications and you will hardly have those as OTC (this is mostly country dependent anyways).
The best approach would have been that you should consult with your primary care doctor or gynobs, who can examine you, run some tests and provide you with appropriate medication depending on the cause. Your partner might also require treatment through in order to prevent reinfection. Tests to rule out STDs such as syphilis, chlamydia, trichomonas vaginalis, gonorrhea etc will have to be done.
I usually prescribe antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin, doxycycline, metronidazole, erythromycin, norfloxacin etc in order to handle such infections. Could be given singly or in combination and some of them can be found OTC.

Hope this helps
