Question: Painful sore on vagina


 Vivi217 - Thu Aug 18, 2005 6:36 am

I'm a 25 y/o female. About 2 weeks ago...a few days after my 6 week check-up...My vagina was a little itchy...there was some white discharge and I was and still am uncomfortable down below. I noticed that I had some sort of sore...it's very painful when I wash down there and when I urinate. There's no swelling of anything. The sore is red...with a white center...a perfect looking circle...it's located right at the vagina opening.
I have been with the same partner for a year and a half and he has been faithful 100%...no doubt about it.
What could this be?
