User :   Morning,
My query: A burning sensation during and after intercourse. I got married just over a month ago, I was a virgin. it took about a month for my husband to penetrate me without pain or discomfort. Last night I experienced a burning sensation that increased hugely as soon as he ejaculated. We immediately stopped, I got the vaginal anti-bacterial cream and applied the cream. By this morning the burning inside had stopped, but outside there is still a mild burning and discomfort. I would like to know if I should rather consult a gynae to be safe, or if applying the anti-bacterial cream is enough. Thank you.

Doctor :   Let me brief you.
Doctor :   You are probably having genito urinary infection.
Doctor :   The nature of the infection can only be determined by a swab tests or a urine test.
User :   ok, so a gynae visit is in order
Doctor :   However, since you have used a cream and your symptoms are reduced with it, it is probably settling down.
Doctor :   I suggest you these measures that should help you.
Doctor :   1. Drink plenty of water, it will help you in flushing the infection
Doctor :   2. Avoid sexual intercourse for a few days.
