User :   I had sex and it was a little harder than usually and I ask him to stop because I started burning really bad....The burning has never stopped..I have had burning of the vaginal area daily for about a year. The doctor stated there is not wrong, no yeast infection, etc. I have had several test and nothing been found. Are my cells severely damaged or is there something I can do to restore the damage cells. But the most interesting part is I start burning after I get up and begin eating and other daily activity. When I am in bed most of the time I have no burning, is something going on with my stomach and its effect my vaginal area. I just need to make common sense of the problem, so I can move on with life.
