Q: Didn't know what to put this under sorry.

Um, Well I have had this problem for a week or so now. I have the implanon contraception so I rarely have a period. I did this month and around a day or two later I started itching. I applied thrush cream and that helped for a little, while going in the shower aswell. All this was seeming to sooth it until the left inside of my libia minora swelled up, although it was only a small part it was sore to touch and very uncomfortable, often rubbing against clothes. I tried to solve this with creams but it didn't help and they only thing that did was warm water, so I was showering every 4-5 hours. The swelling has now gone down, but there are still very sensitive areas by it and its still itchy. I have also found a small pea sized lump in my libia minora (I think, not to sure) that only hurts when I put pressure on it. I have noticed that it has not changed colour at all (apart from the swelling when it was a little red) I have had no discharge and I'm in a long term happy relationship to STD is out of the question. Please get back to me as soon as you can as I'm stumped and it would really put my mind at ease.
