    I get this from time to time. 

    My right side in the inside of my vagina. Swollen and then a pinching feeling on the out side.  And same side of anus.  

    It sometimes is piles  that are sore and swollen.  And feels like it swollen from anus right through to vagina in inside. 

    Well what makes mine flare up is. If I get constipated it puts pressure on  veins in back passage and causes piles. 

    So plenty of water helps with that. And don’t eat spicy stuff or acid like cabbage etc. That irritates it

    And sometimes it’s from lifting something to heavy also out pressure on it and on pelvis.   But usually settles after a few days.  I have used suppositories  to help soften poo for a day or two . If it was really bad. But other than that it usually settles by its self.

    Get to your gynecologist who will prescribed a cream for it. Swelling anywhere in the body is an indication that something's not right and needs medical attention. Internal or external swelling both should be looked at.

      We saw a lot of patients with similar symptoms, some were yeast infections, others bacterial vaginosis,

      and others piles. Just because you had this doesn't mean the next person with similar symptoms has the same. It's good you were seen and diagnosed. I had exactly the same symptoms awhile back, turned out to be a yeast infection, where everything around my anal area was swollen and hard in some parts of my inner parts. Peri symptoms can be deceiving, I thought it was bacterial vaginosis, but under the microscope it was yeast. It's best to have it examined for proper treatment.
