- Itching and burning
Persistent burning and itching may indicate a large number of vaginal infections. Itching and burning are caused when the bad and harmful bacteria outnumber the good bacteria in your vagina. Itching and a burning sensation are signs of a fungal infection. Itching can also be caused by creams, soaps, and contraceptive foams.
2. Bleeding during and after intercourse
Bleeding during and after intercourse can be a sign of vaginal infection, vaginal tears, venereal disease, and vaginal dryness. The friction caused by sexual intercourse irritates the dry skin and causes spots. Bleeding during or after sex during menopause may indicate cervical cancer. Remember that any abnormal bleeding is a cause for concern and you should consult with your gynecologist.
