Hi Anonymous and welcome to EmpowHER.

There are many, many reasons why a woman can experience burning and itching after sex. Please see this article, written for the EmpowHER community, which provides a lot of information on this: The Worst Itch: What Causes Vaginal Itching and Burning?

You mentioned that you have already tried treating the symptoms with a medication for a yeast infection and that hasn't worked. When did you last see a gynecologist? Instead of self-diagnosing it would be best to see your gyn for a physical exam to determine what you are dealing with and what will help relieve your symptoms.

If you do not have an infection, and depending on your personal medical history, one option may be hormone replacement therapy. Using estrogen creams in the vaginal area is another method used to reduce vaginal dryness and all symptoms related to dryness. For some women, the use of bio-identical hormones, which reduce the risk associated with conventional hormone replacement therapy, is more appropriate. 

No one should have to be miserable like you are, and I hope you will schedule an appointment soon so you can feel better as quickly as possible.

Hope that helps,
