Good night doctor, my partner and I have had gonorrhea, but we got the doctor’s treatment faster with injections and taking antibiotics, now my vagina is often itchy for no reason I have scratched it and now it’s a wound. Then when I had intercourse with my husband, I was uncomfortable because it seemed like there was a sore on the inside like a canker sore and like there were thorns when the penis entered my vaginal opening. Please help with advice. Thank you

Hello, good morning Nita.


Complaints of vaginal itching and pain during sexual intercourse can be caused by several possibilities:

vaginitis / inflammation of the vagina and cervicitis / inflammation of the cervix, which can be caused by:

bacterial infection. Diseases due to bacterial infections that can cause these complaints include:


gonorrhea (classified as sexually transmitted infections / STIs)

bacterial vaginosis (may or may not be an STI)

chlamydiosis (STI)


fungi, such as vulvovaginal candidiasis (can or may not be an STI)
viruses, such as in genital herpes (STIs)
parasite. As in Trichomoniasis (STI)


irritation due to chemicals, for example due to chemicals contained in condoms, soap, tissues, or sanitary napkins used
stress
etc


To ascertain the cause of the complaint you are experiencing, direct examination is needed, not only through the complaints that are told, because each of these diseases has its own unique characteristics that can be distinguished from the findings of the examination results. Therefore, we suggest that you check directly with a specialist in skin and venereal diseases to get further treatment. The doctor may perform an inspeculo examination (ie, an examination using a speculum or a duck's tail to see the vaginal wall and cervix), laboratory examinations of vaginal wall fluid preparations, and so on. Treatment will be adjusted to the cause of the complaint (diagnosis). Don't forget to take your husband and you when he goes to the doctor, so that the treatment is complete and there is no risk of spreading the disease again.

While waiting for the doctor's appointment, here are some suggestions that we can give to help relieve complaints:

refrain from scratching your vagina as this can cause new blisters
Do not wash the vagina with hot water, instead you can use plain water or lukewarm water
Dry the feminine area with a clean, dry towel after every BAK / BAB
wash the female area from front to back after every bowel movement
change underwear at least 2 times a day, and whenever it feels damp
wear underwear made of material that is not hot and that is not tight and absorbs sweat
do not use a special soap for the feminine area
if it hurts, avoid sexual intercourse for a while


That's all, hope this helps ...
