Overview of a burning sensation in the vagina

A burning sensation in the vagina can be pretty uncomfortable and annoying. Burning is often accompanied by genital discomfort, itching or irritation. This symptom may be persistent or be most noticeable during urination or intercourse. Many times this symptom isn’t serious, but other times it can indicate a serious infection.

Potential causes of a burning sensation in the vagina

There are several causes of vaginal burning or discomfort:

  • Sexually transmitted disease
    • STDs chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis can all cause a burning sensation in the vagina. It may also be accompanied by abnormal discharge, unusual odor and/or pain during sex.
    • Genital herpes can also cause a burning feeling in the vagina or around the outer genitals. It may be accompanied by bumps or blisters.
  • Yeast infection
  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Menopause
  • Allergic reaction to chemicals or other irritants, such as laundry detergent

Diagnosing a burning sensation in the vagina

A burning sensation can indicate an STD, so if there a chance of exposure, STD testing is strongly recommended. It’s important to test for STDs quickly, since untreated chlamydia and gonorrhea can cause complications like infertility. If negative, a doctor can determine other causes of vaginal burning.
