GYN MD visit needed: Your vaginal symptoms may only have been caused by initial intercourse, but the burning may be due to a urinary tract infection that needs assessment and possible treatment by a GYN MD. See one soon.

Get checked: This needs to be looked at. A yeast infection, urinary tract infection, and Herpes are all possibilities. Each would require different management.
