Remnant of the hymen
Looks like remnant of the hymen. Got inflammed. Would recommend steroid cream for couple week followed by surgical removal. Please get exam and advise from your gynecologist. Hope this helps.
Hello. What you have is an irritated hymenal remnant. It's a tag from when your hymen was broken. It has likely always been there tucked inside and now that it is irritated it hangs out and you notice it. It can be removed if you wish. ~Dr Poucher

Thank you for sharing. The most likely scenario is that a little remnant of the hymenal ring is now apparent out of the opening of the vagina. This is not dangerous and does not need to be addressed unless it bothers you from a functional or aesthetic perspective.If you wish to have it removed, it is an easy and straightforward procedure with very little down time. This is usually performed in an office type setting under local anesthesia.

Based upon your photos it appears you have a remnant from your hymenal ring. This is likely from delivery and not the D and C. This is not uncommon and can be removed fairly easily. I think this procedure should be covered by your healthcare insurance and will only take a few days to recover. You should defer sexual intercourse for six weeks. Make sure you see a OBGYN that specializes in vaginal surgery. Many OBGYN really mostly just deliver babies and are not good surgeons. The reason I am mentioning that was that when you had your D and C, this hymenal skin tag could have easily been removed and save you the bother.
