Vaginal burning after sex
Posted on: 09/24/2007
I have vaginal burning after sex with no kind of discharge. I was wondering do condoms cut people? If not, how can I differentiate between a UTI & STD?
Condoms do not cut people, but some people are sensitive to the spermicides that condoms use. You might try a different brand of condoms and see if they work better.
If that doesn't help you might want to try a water based lubricant as sometimes if you are a little dry you will feel some discomfort.
STD's and UTI's have very similar symptoms. You will probably need to do to your local medical provider to be checked out if you are still having problems.
