Q: what does it mean if my vagina burns

One day i woke up with a burning pain in the upper region of my vagina, the burning was intensifying, so i tryed taking a bath, which only made it worse. Later on it got really bad, and i couldnt stand it anymore so i tryed falling asleep. The next day it was gone. What could have caused it and why?? any suggestions?

Hi there


Did you also have any itching or discharge?  Sometimes this sort of pain can be attributed to a yeast infection.  Or it could be that you are allergic to something...perhaps the soap you are using.


If you are still concerned about this I would give a call to your gynecologist to see what is causing this pain.


Thank you for your question.
