I can't confirm!: I can't confirm anything above without an examination as most MD's also feel. Make an appointment and go see a GYN MD.

More info needed: "Vaginitis" means inflammation of the vagina. There are several different kinds. The most likely to cause burning on urination is candida (yeast) infection, but other things can do the same, especially STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, or herpes. Check with the doctor or clinic where you were diagnosed; of if you haven't yet had profesional care, do it ASAP. Good luck!
