Brief Answer:
vaginitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query to HCM,
There is all likelihood that you may have developed VAGINITIS or vaginal infection , usually seen after a rough sex or if tampon are being used and have been forgotten for more than 12 hrs. In any case the best would be to seek a vaginal swab culture to rule out infection and if detected then douching should be avoided and a course of antibiotics should be started.
