im 17 years old and for the last few months when i get my period i get a very soar,swollen ,itching and irritated vagina. the flap are swollen and itchy. it hurt when i wipe my self. the flaps are swollen like double the size and have become dry. they become dry and then start to crack and get little cuts in them.this is very painful !! about 3 months ago i had a contreptive inserted in my arm ( implanon) and when i get my period now the swelling and soarness is worse.i also use tampons and wonder if that could be a cause? when ever i go to the doctor she says " you have a normal lookin vagina" but it still hurts. i have used canistan cream (used for thrush) and my vagina instead of being releaved is left with a burning sensation. its very annoing and painful. please help.
