Burning and swelling after sex
Posted on: 10/28/2008
i'm pregnant and everytime I have sex i'm burning on the inside bad and vulva is swollen and sore.
When you are pregnant your hormone levels are different, often causing vaginal dryness (from lack of lubrication). This may be why you have a "burning" sensation with intercourse. Trying lubricants and different positions may provide relief of symptoms. If it continues, you should have an exam by your physician to make sure the discomfort is not from a vaginal infection.
