It is possible that you have developed a condition known as Bartholinitis.
The Bartholin's glands are two small glands on either side of the vaginal opening. These can get infected by bacteria in the vagina leading to inflammation. It is usually not due to a sexually transmitted disease but other bacteria present in the vagina or on the skin. If infection occurs, pressure on the glands will cause pain.
The standard treatment is with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicines. If treatment is not done in time, Bartholin's abscess may develop - this will require surgical drainage of the abscess.
Please consult your obgyn for a checkup.
