Hi there..

Please visit a gynaecologist.

It would be better if you got a pap smear done...since it is overdue...

I would also advise a urine routine examination, as urinary tract infection can also present in a similar manner. Any increased frequency of urination or burning sensation while passing urine.

Also an ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvic region to rule out other pathologies.
