Brief Answer:
Due to hormonal imbalance.

Detailed Answer:

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
As you are having prolonged menstrual cycle before also,it can be a normal delay in your case.
It could be due to hormonal imbalance but if by any means if semen goes inside the vagina,it can be due to pregnancy ( though the chances are almost nil).
Get your blood test( Hb),thyroid profile and pelvic ultrasound to rule out the cause.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
These symptoms are suggested of vaginal infection.

Detailed Answer:

Sorry for such a long delay in my response.
These symptoms are most likely due to vaginal infection ( Vaginitis) caused by fungal or bacterial infection.
For this you can take antibiotics and antifungal after consulting your treating doctor as they are the prescription drugs.
Keep the area dry and clean.
Use cotton undergarments.
Use Betadine liquid to clean the area

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
