Hi, I have been having problems for a good while... Im 25.

Resolved Question:

Hi, I have been having problems for a good while... I'm 25. I've been getting vaginal and abdominal pain during and after intercourse. It's been happening more gradually for over a year. My pelvis also locks up sometimes. Irregular periods over the past year, ranging from 16 days, 19 days, 22 days, 25 days, sometimes 2 periods in the same month...It used to always be 28 days. A lot of the time I would have vaginal dryness with stinging/burning. Vagina sometimes can get very red and swollen that would mostly happen after intercourse. I also suffer from fatigue and dizziness. I've been to my gp a few months ago and swabs and a smear was done and everything came back normal. I have hpv and I have been waiting to see an ob/gyn since february. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Why is it taking so long to get in?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I'm not sure why it's taking so long. I assume there is a long waiting list. I got a text from the hospital in May asking me if I still wanted the appointment. I said yes, but I haven't heard anymore from them.

Wow you really need to see an OB GYN.
You need an exam, pelvic ultrasound and thyroid tests
This is imperative

Have you a rough idea of what could be wrong or would it be too hard to tell without doing tests first? I've been to two different doctors and they just tell me " I don't know what's wrong" or "just go on the contraceptive pill". Thank you very much for the advice :)
