Hello, I’m 18 years old and have been into the Emergency room twice with pain in my vagina. It started out with just burning when I urinated but has since escalated into something else. The first trip I made into the ER, I was told I had a simple UTI. I was put on Cephalexin for 7 days but was told to return in 48hrs if my symptoms have not subsided. I ended up having more symptoms such as raw feeling, extreme tenderness, discharge, and swelling in my vagina. I returned back into the ER and was told I do not have a uti but they don’t know why I’m experiencing this. They did a vaginal exam and everything came back normal. What could possibly be going on?!
