If you have increasing pain after exercise then stop doing it. Consult to your physio and tell your problom. Dry needling(physiotherapy treatment procedure) will be helpful for you.

28 yrs is too young to start rejoint or other ways, unlikely to be osteoarthritis at your age. Since pain has been for 6 months now, and its getting worse with exercises, I think you should go ahead with some more investigations and work on cause of pain. Intraarticular ligament injuries or some inflammation may cause the above symptoms.

You need to be evaluated for the biomechanics of your movement and correct any faulty muscle action or activation. You need a detailed assessment by a sports physiotherapist or an ortho physiotherapist for further suggestive plan of treatment. Do you have any associated wt loss, affection of sleep etc ?

It may hurt sometimes due to hamstring tightness also. So try stretching the hamstring.
