Skin flap in vagina? Hurts
About a month ago I noticed stinging pain just inside the opening of my vagina while using a tampon. It then happened when having sex with my boyfriend, and stung for about a day afterwards. I bought lube and went to a DR, thinking it was torn somewhere. The DR examined, said nothing looked out of the ordinary, and took a swab. She gave me an antibiotic in case there was infection. Nothing came back from the swab.
I just had my period again, used tampons. Finished it, had sex with my boyfriend. Now I have the same feeling, but have found what's hurting me. From what I can see it is a tiny little flap, which would really appear to be part of the skin in the opening. My boyfriend looked and said it looked like everything else. But it hurts and I don't recall it being there before.
It is not a bump like a wart or herpes or a boil. It is a tiny piece of skin that hangs and is irritated. I have been tested for all STDs fairly recently, though nothing but the swab in the 5 months I have been with my boyfriend.
Anyone else experience this or know if its likely to be a skin tag? It appears to be one, but I don't see anything online about them causing pain?
