Hi and thank you for your question. Where does it sting the vagina or the urethra?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I guess it must be the urethra but I figure with urogenital vaginitis, it's all related.
Expert:  CamilleRN replied 7 years ago.
Atrophic Vaginitis is an inflammation of the vagina due to thinning
of tissues, this causes a decrease in lubrication and as a result Burning is a symptom. I wanted to know if it was the urethra because if so, that could be a sign of a urinary tract infection. What are you using on it to help with the pain? Is your urine clear?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It only stings some of the time I urinate, so I haven't used anything. I did have a urine test last week, and I think it was clear.

That's good. I would recommend you ask your Doctor if Ovestin cream could be used. ( I think this would help you) Here i a link to read about this:
