what is with this burning?!?!

Okay, Im not sure what is going on "down under" but maybe a few of you could shed some light:


I am 26, married, and in good health. I am not on any type of birth control and I exercise regularly and eat healthy. I have no medical problems nor do I take any type of medications.


However, for the past week I have had a mild burning down there. There isn't a smell, itch, discharge, nothing. I am not swollen or red down there either. However, the burn is enough to be annoying and keep me up at night, it is more uncomfortable than painful. It isn't a UTI, I get those enough to know when I have one.


Any suggestions?

Thanks Camy, Ive been wearing cotton underwear the past few days and have avoided putting soap there. Hopefully it helps.

Fairly certain its not a yeast infection; usually I have discharge with those. As for BV, Ive had that before and didn't even know it until my gyno pointed it out and gave me a RX. I have an appt. for July 15, that is the earliest they could get me in.

Do you think it could be bacterial vaginosis or perhaps a yeast infection?
