Question: Vaginal burning


 Mom28 - Sun Apr 29, 2007 11:34 pm

I am a 34 yr old mother to 8 children. I have been having horrible vaginal burning that gets worse when my period starts. I also have a lot of pelvic pain after sex. I do not have an increase in discharge nor do I have any itching.

14 years ago, I was diagnosed and treated for clamydia and it seemed to go away.

Could this be an STD?

Thanks

User avatar Burning can certainly be an indicator of an STD. If there is a possibility of this I would recommend you be tested.

Also, a yeast infection can cause your symptoms. Discharge is commonly associated with a yeast infection but it can be absent.

If you've had yeast infections before and this is different you should see your doctor before beginning a yeast infection treatment to be sure that this is what is going on.

Best wishes.
