    My vagina burns and hurts when I urinate, and continues to hurt for a few minutes afterward. What does this mean?

    Hi there, crazy505 - 


    I'm sorry you're going through this!  Paul is right - this is the sort of thing a doctor needs to check out right away. It could be a bladder infection, a urinary tract infection, or a vaginal infection of some kind, though there's no way to know for certain without lab tests performed by a doctor.  Untreated, these can become quite serious.


    Here are some links that might be helpful to you in learning more about STDs and UTIs:

    Good luck!

    You need to be seen by a doctor. This is not normal and the cause must be determined and treatment, if needed, given through the doctor. You do not say whether you are sexually active or not. If you are, it could be something as serious as Chlamydia or Gonorrhea. You don't mention any abnormal discharge and that is not always present.


    Now, it may not be, the doctor will determine that, it's just that if it is, there can be serious consequences further on in your health including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ectopic pregnancy, and infertility.


    Please see a doctor and let us know how you are doing.
