52 years; Using continuous marvelon and vagifem . Experiencing vaginal burning, no infections. Could I be using too much hormone or maybe prolapse?

52 years; Using continuous marvelon and vagifem . Experiencing vaginal burning, no infections. Could I be using too much hormone or maybe prolapse?

Maybe: Marvelon is a birth control hormone that contains ethinyl estradiol whereas Vagifem contains estradiol. Ethinyl estradiol is five times more potent that estradiol, which is why it suppresses ovary function. You may be better served with natural hormones to deal with perimenopausal symtpoms and an IUD or other form of contraception to prevent pregnancy. ...Read more

Saw my dr for vaginal burning.No infections there or UTI. Could it be non infectious vaginitis from chemical menopause due to chemo?

Saw my dr for vaginal burning.No infections there or UTI. Could it be non infectious vaginitis from chemical menopause due to chemo?

Yes: Some chemo regimens can cause menopause. In menopause you typically produce little to no estrogen. The genital tract tissues depend on estrogen to remain moist and of normal thickness.

Having vaginal burning about 3 months comes and goes doctor says I have no infections when I get checked what could it be ?

Vulvodynia?: Yvette, in earlier question you were concerned about herpes and other STDs. Since those tests were negative, I speculated about idiopathic vulvodynia. That sill seems likely. Your gyn will know how to deal with it; or can refer you to one with lots of professional experience with vulvodynia (maybe dermatologist or infectious diseases). You'll probably never get any more useful info on this forum. ...Read more

Vaginal itching and burning after having a lot of sex. What is causing it? Could it be a yeast infection? How do i treat it?

Try condom: The vaginal vault could be too dry and rubbing would result in itching and burning. Semen may be the trigger altering your vagina’s chemistry. Other possible triggers are lowered immune resistance, douching, birth control pills, antibiotics, or cuts, abrasions, or other vaginal irritation (friction from intercourse, fingers or fingernails, or tampons). You might try a lubricated condom. ...Read more

For 5yrs my sister is having burning in vaginal area & heavy discharge.Several tests have been done from STDs to infections, no respite for her.Help.

Many reasons: There are several other conditions that can cause this feeling of burning and discharge. Occasionally, heavy discharge can be completely normal however the burning sensation may indicate another type of problem that requires a doctor to evaluate and treat.. This sounds similar to vulvodynia, or vaginal pain without any infection or trauma but you will need a doctor's evaluation to be sure. ...Read more

I recently went off of BC pills after being on x 14 years. I am experiencing vaginal burning and the doc has ruled out infection. Hormones changing?

I recently went off of BC pills after being on x 14 years. I am experiencing vaginal burning and the doc has ruled out infection. Hormones changing?

Yeast infection...: ...is the most common cause of vaginal burning or itching, and can be difficult to confirm even by expert physicians. Ask your doctor if yeast could have been missed, or if it would make sense to try treatment for the possibility. Treatment is easy with vaginal creams or inserts, or a single dose of fluconazole (Diflucan®) by mouth. So maybe it's worth a try. Good luck. ...Read more
