I am a 22 year old female. I've had my period every two weeks for several months. Recently, I noticed that the inside of my vagina seems swollen/thicker. It's hard to say if the thickening is a lump, or just thickening. I went to the gynecologist and she told me to have a transabdominal ultrasound performed. The results came back normal. Is it possible that there's something there, but the ultrasound didn't pick it up? What is this thickening/lumps?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the vaginal thickening and recurrent bleeding that you describe without examining you. A transvaginal ultrasound can be done or a proper examination done under light to look for any lesions. Other causes like cervix erosion, cervical dysplasia, cervical polyps, vaginal endometriosis etc should also be ruled out. You may consider taking second opinion from another gynecologist.
Take care.
