Dry and burning on external private parts berore period.

Resolved Question:

Last month about a week before my period, I felt dry and burning on my external private parts, when I urinate it doesn't hurt but feel dry but lasting for three wks and stop.And now I am a week away and the same dry and burning sensesation is back, I don't if it because I live a dry state or eating habit, or bathing habit or unrinary infection which I don't think every had before? It drive me crazy.
I am almost 30 and not sexual active, but can get on a birth control where i won't have a period for three to six months? Because I dread my period every month and do I need a period every month?

Thanks for your consult at,
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.
