Very bad menstrual pains + burning, sore, itchy?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has any idea what these symptoms may suggest.


The past four days or so I've had an extremely sore vagina, accompanied by itchiness and a burning sensation in various areas. I've also just started my period and am experiencing very painful menstrual cramps and pains (I don't normally get any cramps at all when I menstruate). Inserting and removing tampons has become very painful and uncomfortable due to the soreness.


I'm on long-term antibiotics for chronic tonsillitis so it's quite possible I could have thrush, however the last time I had thrush it was nothing like this - I was just a bit itchy.


If symptoms persist of course I will be off to see my doctor, but what do you guys think?

In addition to what other posters have said, stop using tampons for now and use pads instead. Thrush can burn as well as itch, but it sounds like you have a urinary tract infection as well. Depending on how broad-spectrum your antibiotics are, they may or may not protect against other infections.


A urinary tract infection like cystitis will give you a cramping sensation like you describe.


It all sounds very nasty and I hope you get it sorted soon!
