My problems appear to have started around two months ago. I was washing the genital area in the shower (using the shower head), when i felt an odd pain/sensation inside the vagina. It felt like when the water shot up there, that it touched something inside that shouldn't have been there. Three days after that, i began to feel a soreness in the exact same area. Sometimes it would burn and be very uncomfortable, then it would be a mild soreness that didn't bother me at all (but it always felt like there was something inside). Oddly, it would sometimes feel cold down there, after eating very cold food or drinks. The soreness would come and go, as soon as i thought it had gone, it would be back again. I had other symptoms also: very frequent urination (but no burning) and a dull ache in my left side and kidney. A couple pf weeks later i went to the doctor with these symptoms, she felt the inside of my vagina but said she couldn't feel anything (maybe she felt the wrong place). She diagnosed a urine infection. To cut a long story short, i have given in endless urine samples, had to wait for the results, and then was prescribed antibiotics. I've had three courses altogether, and the very latest results came back as saying the infection had finally gone. I thought the soreness inside was maybe part of the urine infection, but after the results are clear, i can still feel it inside. I also still have a need to urinate much more than is normal, my bladder feels irritated (which makes me need to urinate), and i have a dull ache in my left side and kidney. I believe that i have an undiagnosed condition, and think that whatever is inside me, is pressing on the bladder making me need to urinate often, and could have led to a possible kidney infection.
I have been on a waiting list to see a gynecologist for about a month now, and in the meantime, i am worrying myself sick. I fear i must have cancer
of one form or another, a sore vagina can be a symptom of cancer of the ovary, the cervix and bladder, apparently. Can anyone relate to the symptoms i mentioned, especially the sore feeling in the vagina? Do you know what it could possibly be?
I haven't been sexually active for three years.
