What do stinging sensation in genitals after intercourse indicate?

default
Posted on Mon, 18 May 2015
Question: Hi Dr, me and my wife have been together for 5 years and have had a great sex life. however 2 months ago my wife XXXXXXX had bad bronchitis and went on an anti-biotic, and then got bad thrush. since then whenever we have sex, straight after I have cuts and burnt skin type lesions with minor blood. She has initial stinging sensation but then that goes for her and sex pretty much ok. I then cant have sex for 5 or so days until my penis recovers. Its getting very frustrating and I'm very down about it. Ive gone to doctor 3 times, first sample test revealed herpes 1 ???!! but Doctor said it definitely didn't look like herpes, then I undertook a second test with another Doctor, and she also said it didn't look like herpes, and test came up all clear, but I had used bacterial cream prior to second test. Julie's gyno recommended its just ecsma for me and didn't even conduct an examination on XXXXXXX and told her not to worry about it ???. Its really doing my head in. Any assistance or advice would be hugely appreciated. Kind regards, XXXXXXX & XXXXXXX
