hi, I was wondering if you could help me. I have had vaginal soreness during sexual intercourse/burning urinating afterwards for about a month. My vaginal area then hurts for the remainder of the day often the next day as well. I consulted my doctor and the test showed no sign of a UTI. I was wondering if you have any idea what this might be or what I can do to get rid of it. It is incredibly frustrating and nearly unbearable to move around at its worst. Thank you, I really appreciate any feedback you have. I suppose I should mention I am on the pill and I have a boyfriend who occasionally uses protection. Thanks
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The pain/discomfort during intercourse suggests infection or PID (pelvic inflammatory disease). The burning sensation and itching suggest vaginosis. If the symptoms started after condom use, then it could suggest possibility of allergic reaction and secondary infection.
Visit your gynecologist and request for a vaginal swab test to identify the infection and get it treated as indicated by test results.
Get your partner also treated simultaneously and avoid having unprotected intercourse while being on treatment to prevent chances of re-infection.
