Ok im am a 22 year old female and over the past say 5/6 weeks ive noticed that my urine is much stronger in colour and generally quite orange. it has also been cloudy. i havent been drinking alot of water so i started to drink more. then a week and a half ago i experienced thrush like symptoms including itching, red vulva and discharge except discharge was more of a grey than white. i then got some cream in the chemist but i didnt apply it enough and a week ago the infection seemed to have set in further. the itching was not as sever on the outside but literally over in the space of a few hours the inside of my vagina became so swollen to the point that the walls were touching one another. i rang my doctor and described my symptoms as i could not go to the doctor the day this occurred and he said it sounded like thrush and prescribed me a pill and another cream. now while the soreness is much better as is the itch, the inside of my vagina is still closed and swollen and on examining it today i can feel a spot or lump of some sort on the walls quite far inside the vagina.i would examine it further only it hurts to put my fingers in as it is so swollen. im home friday and im due a smear next month anyway. i have booked a checkup with my gp for friday but i would just like some feedback as im worried. i am sexually active in a relationship but havent had sex in 6 weeks due to distance and now this. generally we use a condom but on occasion we have had unprotected sex. i was tested for hpv and cervical cancer a year ago through a smear and i have never had unprotected sex before my boyfriend.
