Burning sensation after intercourse
I had a baby boy via C-section 4 months ago. After my pap-smear at 6 week check up, my gynea found abnormal cells and has told me to go back in December 08 for another check up, however after my husband and I are intimate, I have burning sensation of vagina. Could this be due to the abnormal cells or could something else be wrong? Dont experience any unusual discharges etc and I am exclusively breastfeeding my son (dont know if this makes difference). Please advise. Thank you.

The abnormal cells would not cause this. It may be that you are a bit dry from hormonal changes. You could use KY jelly.
