Thanks for your consult at DoctorSpring.com,
Why do you dread your period every month ?
The symptoms of burning and drying that you described was only last month, right ?
Are you having any persistent problems during your periods other than this ?
This is indicative of an infection, which is very common before periods.
Please consult a gynaecologist and go for internal exam - per vaginum and per speculum.
Also a vaginal swab and culture to identify the organism.
It is also important for you to maintain good perineal hygiene.
Do not use any soaps, gels, cleansers, douches etc.
Just clean with lukewarm water and pat dry gently with a towel whenever you wash and use the restroom.
You do not need to get on birth control , as that will not eliminate an infection.
Having a swab and examination will decide what type of antibiotics would be required.
Hope this helps, All the best & Please feel free to discuss further.
