Customer Question
I have a new...

I have a new partner and have been having sex for roughly 3-4 weeks after five years. Everything has been fine until after my latest period. Now my vagina is very uncomfortable. Not exactly painful, but it feels almost like it is scratched up. There is very mild itching but nothing terrible, some swelling, and tenderness to touch. There is no discharge or odor and it doesn't burn when I urinate. I've been using Aquaphor and ice but it has been 3 days now and I'm starting to get worried. I am 44 years old and not going through menopause or anything like that. I seem to be a little dry but I've been washing the area very well so that may have something to do with it.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?

No

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing regarding my current issue, no.

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having mild itching,some swelling, and tenderness to touch after having sex can be due to possibility of friction from rough sex or there can be possibility of mild infection.

Although you do not have any discharge or odor- but still infection can be a possibility.

Following is recommended for you now:

· Apply ointment monistat vaginal cream.It is a broad spectrum anti-fungal agent.It is available as over the counter without prescription & will help you greatly.

· Probiotics are one of the most important parts of a Candida albicans/yeast infection cure..There are many brands of probiotics easily available as over the counter at your pharmacy.

Also use lubricant before having sex. This will help friction & hence any inflammation.

If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit is less likely required.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
