How is a swollen vagina and heavy periods treated ?

I have a palpable mass on the left side of my vaginal tract (located above and to the side of the cervical opening) The vaginal canal also feels swollen on this side. My menstruation is very heavy and I do pass large clots. For four days every month following the end of my cycle I have nocturia , and UTI symptoms ( frequent urination , painful/pressure, no blood in urine ) This also is causing flank pain. Specifically in the left buttocks and down the thigh ( rated a 2) After the 4 days are over I have absolutely no more symptoms however the nocturia does persist. I am 42 years old and have had 4 vaginal births.

Hello. welcome to HCM.
The location you have described is a common location for cysts and abscesses of the Gartner's duct, however, it is more common in younger females.
best approach will be to go in for a COLPOSCOPIC CHECK UP AND BIOPSY/ EXCISION.
Your urinary symptoms are related to this and will subside once this is controlled.
Take care
