Ever since March of 2010 every time I have sex with my boyfriend after we're finished I get this very intense burning in my vagina. I have gone to the doctor & at one point I had a bad uti, thinking the uti was the problem I took the medicine & things never changed so my doctor told me to get checkedor STDs. I went for my yearly exam at the health department & the gyno told me I had budding yeast & gave me 2 yeast pills, one for later if I needed it. I took one & a couple of months passed & still no changed, so I took the other one & here it is about 7 months later and still absolutely no change. I am going to go see another gyno soon but I am just wanting to get a little bit more information on what this could be. I have only ever had one parter & he is still my current boyfriend. Every time we have sex when he pulls out the pain can either be extrermely annoying, or so intense I lay in the fetal position crying. It does not burn when I urinate though. STD check came back clean.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe could be suggestive of possibility of vaginal infections, PID, vaginismus, vaginal spasm (at the time of orgasm), possibility of endometriosis etc. Consider getting a repeat vaginal swab/smear test done along with PAP smear test. If the smear results come out clean, then go ahead with further tests done to rule out chances of vaginismus, endometriosis etc. Further treatment measures would be directed based on the examination and investigation results. Drink plenty of water. If infection is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment course. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area (vagina has its own mechanism of cleaning itself. Use of these products harms the normal bacteria of vagina and it becomes susceptible to infection). Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes (make sure your undergarments are washed properly and have no traces of detergent in them).
