In brief: Your

Your symptoms could represent a few different processes.
First of all you need to be checked for a UTI (urinary tract infection). Your doctor can rule this out with a simple urine test. On the other hand, you could be dealing with a vaginal/pelvic infection(bacterial, yeast, or even std). Lastly, you could be dealing with ovarian cysts or even uterine fibroids (benign tumors of the uterus). There are multiple possibilities. I recommend a visit with your primary care provider or gyn for a complete evaluation. Best of luck.
