my boyfriend and I had sex 2 days ago using a condom and it wasn't the usual Trojan brand we use and immediately after my vagina started to burn. then the next day everything seemed fine and when we had sex after a few minutes my vagina started to burn again and we had to stop because i was in so much pain. i don't know if I'm having an allergic reaction or what but my vagina is slightly swollen, sore and still has a burning sensation.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  It seems like your vaginal burning can be due to an allergic reaction to the condom.  But other causes of vaginal burning can also be Bacterial vaginosis, Yeast infection. If the symptoms continue you should see your doctor.  To prevent reoccurrence, in the future, he might advised to use condoms made of polyurethane or other non-latex materials.
