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.”

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.

      A personal journey and testimonial from one of my patients: I was diagnosed with vaginismus 4 years ago. I never heard of such medical condition until after I got married. At first my husband and I didn't know what to do, we didn't know what the issues were or how to overcome it. Being born and raised in Armenia and being Christian I wasn't that open about talking to sex with others and so it wasn't easy to seek help. But eventually I went to an Ob-Gyn and luckily she knew about the medical...
