When Menstruation Hurts?
I’ve been menstruating twice, my vagina feels hot, and I always want to urinate, not long after that I immediately got my period, why is that?
Elin, Thanks for asking HealthReplies.com. Vaginal burning and/or burning can occur under the following conditions: Cyclic vulvovaginitis is characterized by recurrent vaginal itching and burning just before or during menstruation, and symptoms may worsen after sexual intercourse. This condition can be caused by an inflammatory response or irritation of the skin around the vagina to hormonal changes (estrogens) before menstruation.
Other conditions that can cause similar symptoms include: Vaginal infection due to bacteria (bacterial vaginosis) or yeast (Vulvovaginal candidiasis) is usually also characterized by thick, foul-smelling discharge from the vagina and itching. Risk factors include multiple partners, long-term use of steroids, diabetes, obesity, etc.
Urinary Tract Infections UTIs are usually also characterized by pain during urination, more frequent urination, lower abdominal pain, and fever. Most often caused by the habit of holding the bladder or the wrong way to wipe (from back to front).
To find out more about your condition, you can consult a doctor. The doctor will perform a physical examination and investigations (examination of urine, vaginal smear, etc.) if necessary. Treatment provided by the doctor may include pain or anti-inflammatory, oral or topical antibiotics/antifungals.
Before seeing a doctor, you can first apply several ways at home to reduce complaints, namely: Maintaining vaginal hygiene Avoid wearing damp or tight clothing Avoid sexual intercourse before and during menstruation Taking over-the-counter pain relievers (paracetamol, ibuprofen) , etc.) Eat and rest enough Avoid smoking
If your symptoms do not improve or if you have a foul-smelling vaginal discharge or abdominal pain, visit your doctor immediately.
That's the information I can provide, hopefully useful.
