A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
According to your description, you may be having a vaginal infection or pain related to premenstrual phase or ovulation.
Though the possibility of vaginal infection is less in nonsexually active women, sometimes it can be seen due to local microbial environmental imbalance, improper usage of tampons or sanitary pads etc.
Try to rule out the correlation of pain with menstrual period or ovulation.
If you think that the pain is not related to menstruation or ovulation,
as you are having the problem since one year, better to consult your doctor once and get examined.
By clinical examination, ultrasound and if needed by vaginal swab culture and sensitivity the possible cause of your problem can be identified and treated.

Take care
