      Ah, so it's unlikely to be anything linked to the menopause - that's what I was wondering.  While I wouldn't have thought this is linked to cervical cancer (but I really don't know much about it!) I certainly think it's something you need to ask a GP about, even if it's just for reassurance.  So I'd make an appointment and get it checked out if I were you.  I'm wondering if there's some sort of infection, so it would be as well to get it checked as soon as possible, in case it needs antibiotics or something.

      Jassy, you do need to ask your GP about it.  Just write down all the symptoms that you've told us, and ask them to sort it.  You're fairly young for menopause but I gather some women do go into it earlier than others, but I don't know that much about it regarding younger age.  But you do need to speak to your GP and get it checked out.  If it is early menopause then you might well go through it and then come out the other side fine, feeling as you did before, but without periods, so it's not all doom and gloom:-))))  Eat well, exercise well (weight bearing exercise is important for bone density) and enjoy it if that's what it is.  I'm 65, and went through the menopause at around 50 and am fit and healthy and happy.  Vaginal atrophy can affect around half of women but you might not be in that half:-))))  So take it as it comes, but it may not even be menopause, so just see the GP and see what they say:-)
