Vaginal burning isn’t a condition or illness itself, but a symptom an underlying cause. It can derive from a variety of conditions and factors, including:
Many women experience a burning sensation in the vagina from time to time. Experts estimate that about 3 out of 4 women have pain during intercourse at some point in their lives, and vaginal burning can be one of the causes. Persistent or severe symptoms can come from common conditions, such as low estrogen levels after menopause.
Treatment for vaginal burning varies, depending on the cause. If you have an infection, such as an STD or yeast infection, for example, symptoms should improve with proper medication. If you have low estrogen levels, you may benefit from hormone or laser therapy. A medical exam and discussion of your symptoms, health history, and family medical history can help your doctor determine the cause, as well as the ideal form of treatment.
