Recently I've been dealing with some serious vaginal discomfort. A couple months ago after being fingered I woke up the next morning with a feeling of burning and rawness in my vaginal area. I was crying throughout the next night and could find no relief. After being diagnosed with a UTI and being on antibiotics for ten days prescribed by my doctor, the feeling gradually went away or at least decreased so I could get on with my life. a few months after I had a similar feeling with no real cause that I could see. After visiting the doctor again I was given more antibiotics just incase, but I don't believe they ever did a urinalysis that time. The first time they did. Now after intercourse, I woke up again with the same burning. I can find no relief anywhere and I am in extreme pain. If there was anyway you could help me understand what to do to prevent this from happening in the future or how to stop the pain I would greatly appreciate it
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. Taking into account your symptoms, it likely seems to be recurrent UTI only. Please get your urine analysis done and you might need a urine culture as that helps in deciding the right antibiotic to be used. Please ensure that you take lots of fluids and also pass urine after the sexual intercourse. You should consult a gynaecologist for the same and get yourself physically examined.
I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care
