What causes burning sensation during intercourse?
Topical Estrogen should be used.
Hi, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Pain and burning of vagina during sexual activity is mostly related to lack of Estrogen ( a hormone needed for vaginal moisturizing too).
In this condition, over-the-counter moisturizers don't help too much.
You can try vaginal Estrogen therapy wich can be done in different ways:
1. Vaginal estrogen cream
2. Vaginal estrogen ring
Since this is a prescription drug, you should discuss with a Gynecologyst about treatment dosages and how often to insert it.
Vaginal Estrogen cream ( Premarin eg.) is used usually once daily, vaginal Estrogen cream ring is inserted by a Gynecologyst and changed once in three months.
Hope this answers your question.

Causes of vaginal pain during sex could be several.
Hi and thanks for asking back.
Causes of vaginal pain and burning during sex at young ages could be several, ranging from psychological causes to anatomical and structural problems.
The exact cause is defined after careful clinical evaluation and examination.
One of the most probable causes is insufficient lubrication of vagina.
Menopause/hysterectomy worsen this condition by lowering Estrogen levels, so it is expected that Estrogen treatment will improve is some degree the symptoms.

Wishing both of you good health and normal sexual life.
