I am 54 and recently started to notice that anytime I washed my genital area it would burn, I tried various washes with no success. I also started urinating more and having mild cramp like feelings but they are extremely low in pelvic area and spread out.
I felt something and took a look than a pic or two.
I finally figured out it was my urethra. Prior to this I could not even find my urethra opening.
Now, it looks like a penis. It is pinkish with some paler areas, the urethra opeing itself is not at the tip and is a bright red around the opening. The very tip has a chunk of white, something or another. It completely blocks my vaginal opening.
I went to my Gyno first, he checked all my female parts and said he didnt see anything wrong. I showed him a pic and he told me it was my urethra and nothing he could do since I needed to pee from it. ?!
So, went to urologist next. He examined me and said i had a very slight prolapse at the urethral opening where the red was. he was about to blow me off and leave when i raised my voice in opposition. He told me it was normal and many womens urethral openings were like this. I told him otherwise.
He put me on a sulfate base medicine and gave me a cortesteroid cream to apply 2x daily + a follow up in two weeks. No blood test, nothing.
A week later and nothing has changed.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
One more thing, i can not have any type of sexual activity due to severe pain, been like that for over a year, the burning when washing started about Jan 16.
