Causes of itching after sex

In previous articles, we talked about sexually transmitted diseases in detail. One of the problems that occurs in a marital relationship is vaginal itching after sex. This issue cannot be considered a disease. But it is as problematic as a disease. In this article, we will examine its causes and ways of treatment.

Various problems of the vagina can cause burning and itching.

Question: If I experience burning and itching in the vaginal area after sexual intercourse, what does that mean?

Answer: Since these symptoms are not normal effects of sex, they can be a sign that there is a problem in your vaginal area.

Various vaginal problems can cause burning and itching, especially many infections, not all of which are related to sex. Below are some of these problems:

• fungal infection:
Itching and burning are two of the many symptoms of a fungal infection, which is also called candidiasis and is very common. Other symptoms include thick, white curd-like discharge and swelling of the labia. Yeast infections can sometimes be spread through sex, but not always, because girls who don’t have sex can also get yeast infections. If you think you have a fungal infection but you have never had this problem, be sure to see a doctor. Those who frequently get yeast infections use over-the-counter antifungal creams or vaginal suppository treatments.

A single-celled parasite that can live in the prostate gland of men can cause a yellow-green frothy discharge as well as itching. This problem cannot be treated with over-the-counter drugs and you need to see a doctor.

• Vaginitis:
It means inflammation of the vagina. Vaginitis results from sexual intercourse or any other factor that disturbs the normal balance of the vagina, which contains bacteria that help clean the vagina and maintain its normal moisture.

Vaginal burning:
Factors related to sex that may cause burning and itching of the vagina include the use of spermicide creams and gels or other contraceptives. Also, menopausal women, whose low level of estrogen in their body sometimes causes the moisture in their vagina to dry, will find sex uncomfortable. Vaginal creams, which can be obtained without a prescription from a pharmacy and can increase vaginal moisture during sex, are useful for this problem.

Allergic reactions:
This problem, which is less common than infection, can also cause vaginal itching and burning after sex. Women may sometimes be allergic to men’s semen. Semen allergies are very difficult to diagnose because of their very personal symptoms that women may not share with their doctors. After the infection is diagnosed, women who find that they are allergic to semen may ask their partner to use condoms. If the previous symptoms disappeared after using a condom, it is probably an allergy problem.

The condom itself may also cause vaginal itching and burning in women who are allergic to latex, the plastic used to make condoms. People who are allergic to latex usually discover their allergy by being exposed to it. Since latex allergy is a very serious issue, which may even have fatal and very dangerous symptoms such as breathing problems, women who have this problem are advised to use latex-free condoms or other contraceptives.
