Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms could be due to possibility of hormonal changes (caused by changes in lifestyle, eating habits, exercise levels etc), infections, PID, cervical problems etc. The cause can be made out only after careful examination done by your doctor/gynecologist along with a vaginal swab/smear test, PAP smear test. Get started on treatment as indicated. Drink plenty of water. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap, perfumes or deodorants in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments. Avoid tight fitting clothes. If you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection.
Take care.
