Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms could be attributed to the hormonal pill use and you should consider visiting your gynecologist for further evaluation to see if you need alternate birth control measures. Prolonged use of hormonal contraceptives can result is appearance of side effects and other complications. Vaginal dryness or lack of adequate lubrication during intercourse can also signal possibility of vaginal infections. Go ahead with further tests to rule out infective causes. If infection is detected and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
