Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks or your query.

This may indicate a recurrence of UTI.
Tender urethra may be explained by UTI, but not the tender vulva.
Pls get examined, get urine culture done to choose the right antibiotic.
Since infection is recurrent, kindly speak to your doc to take antibiotic on a low dose basis for about three to six months to prevent recurrence.
Tender vulva may be due to inflammation of the female genital organs/ PID.

I have been experiencing pain and soreness for about eight months or more around my vulva area. Last week after intercourse with my husband of 31 years, my clitoris is in pain and still enlarged. I started a sulpha antibiotic last Friday for cellulitis I got from a bee sting. I thought it was a yeast infection and did a one day treatment and it doesn t seem to have helped. Any ideas?

At first, it began with my vulva swelling and turning red and sore. I took a Sitz bath, and it went down. The next day, blood was appearing from my clitoris/urethra area. Will the bleeding stop soon? And what is this? (I m not sexually active, so no rough sex.)

I have been having a problem for quite a while now where I will come on my period and as I m comin off or after I come off, I experience this same itchy discomfort. Mainly on the inside of my vagina. It is quite like thrush but it never lasts long enough to be thrush. It is not constantly itchy but close to it. I have looked at my vagina and on the inside there is blatant lumps and the skin just inside the opening is really rough. I have been getting a weird discharge where I get loads of clumps of white cottage cheese like discharge. I have washed. I use non perfumes soaps and every time I ve seen a gynaecologist they haven t ever seen anything strange like it so I m guessing the bumps come and go. It also feels quite swollen on the inside. The vulva is quite sore and and raw from itching. Just need some sort of answers as I am going to a gynaecologist tomorro while I still have symptoms. Just been panicking as I ve been hearing about vulva cancer. Thank you

Every month after my periods get over, I get this strong scratchy feeling in my vagina or vulvas. Assuming it to be caused due to unhygienic problem, I have started washing myself during showers with bath soap (although alternate products for use in the private parts are available) and change pads upto three times daily on period days. In need of immediate help :\
