Why Your Vagina Burns
Have you ever wondered why your vagina burns either during or after penetrative sex? Healthline reached out to me for answers to this burning question, and I was glad to reply. Here is a brief synopsis of the article with a link to the full article below.

Heather

Sex should be good. Like, really, really good.

It definitely shouldn’t be painful or uncomfortable, and yet, for far too many people, it is.

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), nearly 3 out of every 4 vulva owners will experience pain during intercourse at some point in their lives. And one of the most common types of pain is a burning sensation.

If this has happened to you, know that it isn’t “normal” and you don’t have to “put up with it.”

Allergy medications essentially dry you up,

explains Heather Jeffcoat, a Los Angeles doctor of physical therapy who specializes in treating pelvic health conditions, and author of the book “Sex Without Pain: A Self Treatment Guide to the Sex Life You Deserve.”

This can mean less moisture in your vagina tissue too, which can contribute to pain.

      I was hopeful but frankly skeptical when the doctor treating me for Interstitial Cystitis recommended that I go to Heather for physical therapy. Medication and diet helped control my IC symptoms, but I had never heard of physical therapy being used to treat IC. The education and treatment I received from Heather was a revelation. She explained that the pain I experienced with IC had helped create a cycle of muscle guarding which affected the entire pelvic area. I had no idea of the amount of...
