Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. YYou seem to be having secondary amenorrhea. Secondary amenorrhea is when a woman who has had normal menstrual cycles stops getting her monthly period for 3 or more months. Pregnancy is the first possibility that should be ruled out by means of blood HCG tests and ultrasound.

Moreover urinary tract infection is another important possibility because you are having painful micturition also. I would suggest a gynecologist’s evaluation and get a urine examination, urine culture and a culture sensitivity of the vaginal discharge done. Till then take adequate fluids, wear cotton underwear and try not to itch the area because scratching may invite infections.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
