Vaginal burning: It may be a coincidence that the burning stopped. Burning can be caused by a number of organisms, namely yeast or bacterial. Estrogen vaginal gel may improve only hormonal deficits , and not really deal with the origin of the symptoms. See your provider and get a culture done of the vaginal secretions to make certain there is no infection.
