Vaginal/bladder pains
my friend, she is 20 years old, has been having sharp pains in her vagina and bladder for about 3 years. It comes and goes, is worse during period. She has seen a doctor many times but they can't find anything. They have searched for STD's. One said it may be linked to anxiety, she does have a little depresion.
Please help.

I cannot really make a diagnosis without examining your friend. The possibilities are a bladder infection, gynaecological problem, bowel problems, including irritable bowel. Depression can also manifest as pain in a particular area. Her doctors will have to assess the cause.
