Family practice: It is time to see your dr. You have several issues. Abnormal bleeding and vaginal swelling. Examination is needed before treatment.

See your physician. : Obviously there is something wrong. Infection? Ruptured tissue? Please see your physician asap.

It is likely: The prolonged bleeding which has contributed to vulvovaginitis. It sounds like you need to see your doc. Antibiotics or a medicine for yeast would likely help the swelling. You may need the birth control pill or some hormone to help the bleeding. Do this before you develop anemia. Good luck.
