User :   Hi Dr
Doctor :   Plz proceed with your query
User :   I had a query,
Doctor :   Ok
User :   and well, I had a sexual problem, would you be able to help? or should I fix an appointment with a sexologist?
User :   or a gynaec?
Doctor :   I will try to help you to my expertise, plz proceed
User :   I have severe burning sensation everytime we have sex, I'm on a pill and dont use a condom
Doctor :   May i know your age?
User :   25
Doctor :   Where do you exactly have the burning sensation?
User :   And XXXXXXXX is 26
User :   right where teh intercourse happens, vagina
Doctor :   Since how long is this present?
User :   so right after he cums, it burns
User :   ever since we've stopped using condoms
User :   it has been there
Doctor :   Is it after the intercourse or during the intercourse only?
User :   After
User :   afterwards
Doctor :   Ok
User :   but the burning is so bad that it doesnt get better till a day or two days and so it hurts even when you're having it teh next day
Doctor :   Are you having any itching or burning sensation around your vagina?
Doctor :   Is this associated when you urinate also?
User :   nope, it only burns after the intercourse and when he cums inside me
User :   i can urinate fine rest of teh time
User :   i have looked up this over the internet and had seen lots of women posting this query and so read that its because of pH levels... is it really related?
Doctor :   This vaginal burning can be due to various reasons as yeast or bacterial infection
User :   but I've had it for over 4 months now
User :   is it ph levels?
Doctor :   See normal vaginal is acidic in nature and produces many organisms and different infections can alter this ph level and cause you burning
User :   What should I do to counter it?
User :   is there any cream or a lubricant I can be using?
User :   or a tablet?
Doctor :   Its long since you are having this infection so you need to get yourself examined by a gynaecologist, also you may require vaginal swab test to rule the organism.
Doctor :   You may also require an ultrasound and urine test
User :   well, it doesnt always happen, i have very irrgular food habits so sometimes its been there in these four months and sometimes not
User :   I'be had an ultrasound and urine test done and it all came normal
Doctor :   You should avoid having unprotected intercourse as it mat spread the infection to your husband also
Doctor :   Its not related to food habits at all
User :   oh ok
Doctor :   A vaginal swab test will be required ti see the causative organism
User :   ok
User :   for now, is there anything I can use to feel a little better?
Doctor :   You can wash your vagina with 1 to 2 tbsp tea tree oil mixed in half cup of water, teat tree oil is very effective in this.
Doctor :   Also wear loose cotton clothes, do not wear too tight undies.
User :   Oh ok, is this commonly available?
User :   tea tree oil
Doctor :   Yes

User :   I would get that and also, a vaginal swab test
User :   Thanks
