My urethra is swollen. If i look into my vagina it sticks out, it's a bit sensitive to touch and a pale pink colour, about the size of a pea, ideas?

In brief: See answer

The appearance of the urethral opening (meatus) does vary amongst individuals.
If irritated or inflamed for any reason such as from infection (bacterial, fungal, std), trauma, vigorous/prolonged sexual activity, or sensitivity to a chemical allergen (latex, spermicidal, lubricant, fragrance, soap, etc), urethra will be more swollen, prominent, and reddened. Urethral prolapse or caruncle also.
