Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am currently pregnant and still used to have sex with my husband. After sex, there is a burning sensation in my vagina that last for minutes to hours. The thing is, it only happens after he ejaculates inside me. Please help.

Answered by Dr. Sameer Kumar

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thanks for choosing this platform.

There is a possibility that due to inadequate lubrication there occurs local vaginal abrasions. After ejaculation the abrasions in vagina start burning and itching till you clean yourself up.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
