Customer Question
For the last week...

For the last week I have had sharp pains in my vagina area, they come and go. Could this be a serious problem

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I have had the pain for about a week. Nothing makes the pain better or worse, it just comes on at various times

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had a partial hysterectomy about 30 years ago, I still have my ovaries.

Usually these short, sharp and brief pains are due to pelvic floor dysfunction ( muscle) or infection. However, since there is some vsfinal discharge, I would recommend seeing you doctor where they can perform an exam and see if there is a vaginal infection.If no infection, then they can refer you to a physical therapist that specializes in pelvic floor issues.Does that make sense?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
