User :   Hi, I think I have some sort of UTI or infection, however I can't go to the doctor. I am takaing bactram, I just took a dose. When me and my bf have sex for a couple of months its felt very discomforting and almost painful without any pleasure. Just now I put a finger in it to feel around. The inside feels very swollen, and when I pressed agains the upper bone which usually feels good, I felt a lil pain and discomfort. Then when I took my finger out there was extremely thick mucus that it wasnt even the texture of normal mucus because it was so thick. Its like it coated my finger. It doesn't smell though. What could this be?

Doctor :   Diagnosis of Female Groin Pain: There are various techniques that your physician might check for, in order to diagnose the exact reason of groin pain. He will check for
time span, severity and common symptoms of lower abdominal pain. The following are some of the tests that help the physician in finding the exact reason of groin pain.
Physical Tests: The physician will first observe the affected area for any kind of swelling. He might make you perform certain abrupt exhaling exercises, to see if the swelling or the cyst appears when pressure is applied on the groin area. Determination of the groin lump helps the physician to decide the type of groin pain and see if the pain is due to inguinal hernia, abscess or any other cause. The doctor will also examine the lymph nodes, the back and the hips.
Radiological Examination: Certain radiological tests will be performed to confirm the type of groin pain and hernia. Doppler test, pelvic and lumbar X-rays, CT scans of the pubic symphysis, pylograms to detect kidney stones might also be performed if found necessary by the physician.
Other Tests: Tests for the full blood count and the erythrocyte sedimentation rate test (ESR), as well as electrolytes and renal function tests will be performed by the physician. Urine culture, urinalysis and microscopic urine tests will need to be performed. Culturing of the swabs will also be done if the lumps are observed. This will help to test and diagnose syphilitic ulcer, genital herpes or Chancroid.
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting me
Doctor :   take acre
Doctor :   bye for now
