feels like a hard ball on the inside of my vagina?

i have high risk hpv & hsv. just recently engaged in unprotected sex with a new partner with the same diagnosis. it's been a week, i've experienced frequent urination, spotting, a light yellow discharge, and a light odor i've never experienced. Today as I was washing I felt as if there was a hard ball on the inside of my vagina. (near the opening) Further exploration with my hands led me to think the inside of my vagina was swollen; but it was too hard. I can only describe it as muscle, or bone... I became concerned, so I examined myself in the mirror i saw something white inside of my vagina. They look like two white balls and they block the opening of my vagina. When I push it comes forward. I'm not in any pain what could this be?

You could have inflammation of the Bartholin glands, which are located at the opening of the vagina.

The only way to know, is to have an examination. You should see a gynecologist for a thorough evaluation.

Good luck.
