What does soreness in the vagina while on a birth control pill indicate?

Hi I’m a female that’s on the birth control pill and I’ve been having watery clear discharge for a week now. My vagina also feels sore for a couple days now I think it’s from rough intercourse from last week and I haven’t been having sex. I just came back from the bathroom and wiped light red discharge. Lots of the discharge comes out sometimes it stains through my jeans. I had a UTI before this started happening and during my UTI, discharge will still come out when I would pee I would describe it as having ejaculation come out of me but it’s not ejaculation. I recently found a pimple on my vagina and it was painful to touch. It wasn’t so big but a normal size. I normally don’t get vaginal pimples. I’ve had an STD in the past but I’ve treated it. Do you think I’ve caught an STD? Ive gotten a new partner. I also engage in unprotected sex.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Since how many cycles you are on birth control pills? It contains progesterone in its last cycle period, which is responsible for vaginal dryness.

Excess or scanty bleeding is also possible while on birth control pills. While coming to the point of a Pimple, its nothing but the inflammation of hair follicles also called boil.

Start Augmentin drug for 5 days, and maintain proper hygiene of perineal area. You can also use Clotrimazole powder after taking bath in the groin region.

Right now your symptoms are not suggestive of STD however if above therapy has no result please consult the gynecologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
