Burning pussy cures...

My partner sometimes experiences a burning sensation in her pussy during sex. Actually, it can happen even before we start having sex while I'm fingering her. We even started using KY jelly to see if it would help, but that didn't seem to make any difference. She says it's not real bad, but just enough to take her out of the mood. Alot of times it seems to happen after she orgasms, which I can make her orgasm real quick so when it's my turn she can't go because of the burning. Any ideas what could be going on? She's been checked for STD's and is in perfect health. And her pussy is delicious, so I'm kinda confused.

Avoid glycerin in lubes

Glycerin is an alcoholic sugar that may be used by yeast as food. That causes overgrowth. Propylene glycol might have similar effects. Some types of KY contain glycerin. The other drawback of glycerin is that it makes the lube get gunky quickly.

To solve this problem use silicone lube or look for a water-based lube without glycerin like Sliquid, System Jo or H2O.

Use natural oil as a lube

Add almond oil to the top of WildOrchid's list.  It's the only one I use (if no annual play is involved).  I love how it's just absorbed into the skin. No clean up required so you can just lay there after the sex and not need to run to the shower. Essentially no odd taste or smell either.

I have also had this problem in the past. My Dr. could not find anything physically wrong with me, but she did suggest switching my soap, detergent, etc. all over to scent & dye free. She also suggested to use more lubricant (plain, not scented or "warming") and to make sure to have enough foreplay before sex. I know these may sound like totally basic suggestions, but they really did help the burning go away. The only time I have burning now is if we have vaginal intercourse too soon before I am completely aroused and sometimes when he is fingering me.

maybe an allergic reaction? It could be that something you eat is affecting your body chemistry. Kind of like how if someone eats lots of a certain food they will start to smell kind of like that food. Or it could be something that gets on your hands sometime before you have sex. Is there anything that you would normally have your hands on that she wouldnt? Or something you eat that she cant/wont?

this is all pretty unlikely, but its all I can think of at the moment.

she could have an excess of acid in her body which would make it possible for her to have a reaction from her own lubercation. has she always had this or is it something new?

she may have vaginitis

Your girlfriend may have vaginitis - it's not an STD but just a bacterial infection that upsets the delicate ph of the vagina. Vaginitis literally means an inflammation of the vagina. The commonest causes of vaginitis are infections, but sometimes allergies to products such as soap or perfume, or to the rubber in some condoms, can be responsible.

A friend of mine has the same burning sensation when she uses condoms with her man. What are the symptoms of vaginitis? A change in discharge, both in smell and colour. An itching or a burning sensation in the vagina. Discomfort when passing water, or during sex. What causes vaginitis? Vaginitis can be caused by many different types of organism, although the symptoms tend to be similar. The most common causes are described below.

Thrush: Thrush infection caused by a fungus (candida albicans) is the most common cause of vaginitis and is a cause of irritation for many women. Symptoms are itching in the crotch area and vagina, but increased discharge is not necessarily present. Other causes Your risk of developing fungal infections increases if you: have diabetes, are pregnant, have a defective immune system. Fungus in the vagina is almost always caused by a change in the vagina's acid balance, which leads to an increase in fungus growth. Fungus is often seen after taking antibiotics.

There is not always an obvious reason why a woman has a thrush infection. Many women recognise the symptoms themselves and obtain treatment from the chemist. If you're uncertain, you should see your doctor. Diagnosis is straightforward and can be confirmed by taking a swab from the vagina. Treatment is either with pessaries (tablets in the vagina) or tablets by mouth.

Bacterial vaginosis: Gardnerella vaginalis (bacterial vaginosis) is caused by the growth of bacteria that causes the acidity of the vagina to become more alkaline. It commonly causes a greyish, foamy discharge with a fishlike smell. Diagnosis is carried out by analysing a swab from the discharge. Treatment is a short course of antibiotics. She should let her gyno know about her burning sensation and that she thinks she has vaginosis. With a round of antibiotics, she'll be right as rain.
