Customer Question

My vagina feels swollen, and very painful. It's inner opening is where most the pain seems to be from. Although I haven't looked or touched it in fear of more pain. I was having discharge of a off white and it was clumpy now it's watery and I can't hold it in or even feel when it's going to happen it'll I'm "peeing" my pants. Witch isn't painful. When I actually try to pee it's VERY painful. Walking around is not fun either.

A swollen and painful vagina with pain when peeing is most often due to genital herpes. Herpes can also cause a vaginal discharge.

I urge you to see a doctor soon for a diagnosis. Herpes can be verified by a herpes culture.

In the meantime, sitting in water with epsom salts will be soothing and healing regardless of the cause. Best wishes.
