Does my vaginal opening look abnormal?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Over the last few days, I've experienced some itching and also mild to moderate pain in my vaginal area, especially when urinating. I don't feel pain when going #2. I don't have any discharge or odor that seems off. I'm new to really taking a close look at my genitals on a regular basis, so I'm wondering if I'm seeing my hymen when looking at my vaginal opening, or if there is actually inflammation or some abnormal tissue - I've attached a photo for reference. I feel like I should make a doctor's appointment to have things checked out.

Some background on my vaginal health - late last year, I had an abnormal pap smear, and a gyno performed a colposcopy, which came back clear. A few years before that I had an abnormal pap and a colpo, which came back with pre-cancerous cells. I had a LEEP procedure done which appeared to be successful after follow up. Could there be something more serious that the doctor didn't catch after my last colpo? I was reading about bartholin's cysts and thought I'd reach out here.image
