Had unprotected sex. Hurt,burn and itching in vaginal area. No STD. What is the problem?

Hi. I recently have been having unprotected sex with my boyfriend and in the middle of one of our sessions, my vaginal area started to burn and hurt really bad.
It was fine the next day and then the day after, when i woke up, it was burning and itching and i felt really sick and could hardly eat. I have never had something like this happen to me before. I searched online for answers everywhere and came across Yeast Infection.
I marked out every common cause down for reasons for this to be happening to me and all that was left was Pregnancy or stress. Also, maybe lotion rubbed on my lower area. I don't have a bad odor or any type of discharge. It burns and itches and is very sore. Also, i have been feeling extremely tired since it started to occur.
My boyfriend and I don't have any type of STD so why is this happening to me? It is almost unbearable.

thanks for using health care magic.
I have gone through your available history.
Burning might be because of inadequate lubrication during intercourse.
You might be having minor vaginal scratches or Fungal infection.but chances of STD can not be ruled out.
as you have symptoms during and immediately after intercourse, symptoms can not be attributed to pregnancy.
Stress is also less likely to cause these symptoms.
You should consult Your Gynecologist for detailed evaluation and treatment. Urine Examination might be needed.

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
Burning in the vaginal area can have plenty of reasons.
The most common among them are inadequate vaginal lubrication. That causes problem of burning and pain.
The other cause could be allergy to the lubricant or any solution that you applied before having sex.
One possibility is that there could be a small tear which is causing pain to you. It may or may not be seen clearly.
And lastly any infection , but then as you say your boyfriend and you are STD negative then there is less chance that it could be infection.
You need to see a gynecologist who will examine you in detail and help you in coming to a solution.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

Hi Koolaidxdino,

Welcome to HCM Forum,

Considering your history and type of pain you most probably had hymen tear or small mucosal tear(manifested by unbearable burning pain) in vagina followed by infection (manifested by fever,altered test and decreased appetite,generalized weakness-tired feeling).This kind of problem can be managed easily - not necessarily this is only due to STD.

Timing of your unprotected sex will determine if there is chance of pregnancy or not. (i.e. if it happened between 9th to 21st day of your menstrual cycle)It takes 3-4 weeks time to show any effect if pregnancy occurred and least likely manifested as problem you mentioned.

Its important to know what exact pathology you having there before start of treatment - so visit to nearest gynecologist and she will treat you appropriately after thorough evaluation.

Hope this will help to you.

Best regards.
