In brief: Your

Your symptoms are concerning for an infection, most likely a non-sexually transmitted infection.
Women can get vaginitis that is not always sexually transmitted. Please have cultures taken and you may need to be on medication for this. If you developed pain, fever, or vomiting then you would have to be seen as an emergency.
