What Causes Vaginal Pain?

default
Posted on Thu, 20 Aug 2015
Question: I have a vaginal pain. No stomach pain or no pain while urinating. I feel temporary relief when I put ice. I don't feel pimple in that area. But I don't know the real reason. It came on the last day of my periods. My husband and I am trying for children but due to this we can't try.

Brief Answer:
As below

Detailed Answer:
Please upload pictures.
It might be a boil or a cyst, I will be able to tell you definitely only after looking at pictures.
If you have been trying to conceive since a year almost, you need help now.
Are you aware of the fertile days, during which it helps most to remain sexually active ?
If yes, then now it is time to consult a doctor.
Please get a semen analysis of your husband done.
Also, follicular monitoring for yourself ( tracking the growth of the egg follicle via serial ultrasound scanning ).
Some hormonal tests - FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin, AMH.
If all this is normal, you may need to have a laparoscopy to check if the fallopian tubes are open or not.
Take regular folic acid supplements.
