Vaginal pain, what's going on?

Today I started having vaginal pain, not stinging or burning. It feels kind of like my hips are widening and I can feel it down there. I've felt that way with AF sometime when sitting on the toilet( sorry for tmi), but never any other times. I don't have AF right now and it's feeling like this when I'm sitting normally. Also having cramps, but AF has been MIA for a few months...has anyone else experienced this? What was it?
