Question: very recent vaginal itching and burning

 glamon - Fri Aug 19, 2005 12:04 pm

i'm 15 years old. i do have a boyfriend, but we have never had sex. both of us are virgins. i was his first kiss, and he was my first kiss so i'm certain neither of us has received any kind of disease from another. i've been wanting to see a doctor for a while now. every time before my period starts, it really stings down there, but it's at least bearable. well, three days ago that feeling came back and i knew my period was coming. but the next day i woke up, and i felt very very dry down there. and that's unusual because usually i'm very moist down there and i can get wet easily. well, that morning i was very dry, and it was very itchy as well. i was very uncomfortable, and it seemed like one side of my vagina seemed heavier than the other. it also started burning and feeling very hot. the next day it was the same thing except it didn't feel so lopsided anymore. this morning it's no longer dry, but that's because i got my period this morning. it still feelsl heated, and it is still itching. i'm very confused because i don't know what could have caused this. my boyfriend keeps telling me to go see a doctor, and i want to so bad, but the next appointment there is not open until september 20th and that's far away.
