I have vaginal burning when its close to time for my period what does that mean?

How bad?: Every cycle? How bad is burning? Always the same distribution? Recurrent herpes flares can occur at this time as its a hormonally stressful and that can bring out a flare. Bc pills would help. If more of an ache then could be vulvar swelling, if have some deeper pain as well then endometriosis could be involved.

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Yes,: Sometimes women can develop a sensitivity or mild allergy to the protective garments they use. You can try to wait it out and see if it gets better; or try looking for a fragrance and dye-free product. They do make some organic, hypo-allergenic pads/liners for woment with sensitivities.

See your doctor: It is hard to tell exactly what you are describing on the internet, but often yeast infections can get worse just before your menses, and can cause burning, both in the vagina and the external genital area. You can try an over the counter antifungal, like gynelotromin (or using Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo to the external area once a week) to see it helps. The best step is to have your gyn/dr. Check you!

Maybe: It may be the pH changes that the period is exacerbating. If you use scented or deodorant soaps or sanitary products, please stop now. They can increase or cause the pH change and the burning. A GYN MD exam can get to the root cause of the problem.

Needs exam: Vaginal itching requires an exam for testing. Yeast infections, trichomoniasis and herpes are the most common causes. Black color blood just means it is older blood and is not usually a cause for concern.

Yeast infection?: The most common cause of vaginal burning is yeast infection, i.e. candida vulvovaginitis, not UTI. If open sores, could be herpes. See a doctor. If no sores, maybe try an over-the-counter yeast cream like miconazole (or any product with active ingredient ending in "azole") -- but definitely see doc if symptoms don't clear within 2-3 days. And by the way, cranberry is not effective against UTI.

Heal thyself: A dry vaginal area can certainly cause burning, and proof positive by your increased hydration that relieves your symptoms. Be sure to stay hydrated always, . the importance of a few good glasses of water throughout the day is often underlooked. Best wishes.

Vaginal mucous not my period odorless what does this mean?

Vaginal mucous not my period odorless what does this mean?

Normal: The cervix (opening to the womb or uterus) produces mucus during various stages of a normal menstrual cycle in response to hormone changes. This is normal. If a person has a lot of mucus it usually means you have high estrogen levels. This is typically considered a good thing. Many women can determine their fertility status based on the way their cervical mucus looks.

Needs evaluation: May be hormonal but may be metabolic. Possible causes include hypothalamic dysfunction, hypothyroidism, hypoglycemia, early menopausal changes etc. All of these need evaluation. If you are a heavy aerobic exerciser, you should stop. The exercise causes a compensatory decrease in thyroid function - cold and decreased estrogen production - hot. Muscle training better (slo burn method only).
