Hi,
Thanks for the query. According to your description, there is possibility of pelvic inflammatory disease.
Once consult gynecologist, get examined and go for ultrasound.
If she suggests go for vaginal swab culture and sensitivity.
By this the possible cause for your problem can be identified and treated.
You may need one course of antibiotics.
If any local lesions like cervical erosion etc found, you have to get treated for that.
Both husband and wife should get treated simultaneously.
Take care.
