Burning in the vagina. Could it be due to partially broken hymen?

My vagina has been burning on and off for 9 months. I think it could be due to a hymen issue. I ve only had sex once due to this, it burned a lot and ever since the pain i experience prevents me from having sex, although that is not my main concern. It burns when I feel around inside but also for no reason at all, lasting anything between an hour on some days and at times it has lasted for two days straight. I bled during sex which I presumed had broken my hymen, yet after a check around there, I struggle to see my opening? Is this simply due to my hymen not being fully broken, and therefore needs to be broken to stop burning throughout the day? or should i see a gyno

Thanks for the query,

Most of vaginal burning isn't a major concern. But because they can be symptoms of an infection like bacterial vaginosis or candidiasis.
A number of chemical substances like creams, douches, condoms, contraceptive foams, laundry detergents, soaps, scented toilet paper can irritate the vagina and thus burning sensation.
Avoid using any of these substances.
Maintain personal hygiene.
Get a swab test to rule out vaginal infection.
