Slight burning

So, I woke up this morning with a slight burning sensation in my vagina. I went to the bathroom and it felt kind of like a raw feeling. When I wiped I had reddish/brown from starting my period. Is it normal to have the little bit of burning? The feeling went away, but I'm still wondering...

It sounds pretty normal, I wouldn't think its anything to worry about unless it persists

burning sensation in your vagina is not normal, and can be sign that you have some sort of infection - most likely yeast or UTI. Both of these can also cause the bleeding, but obviously that can be your period too. Drink plenty of water (in case it;s the start of a UTI) and keep your eye on it for the next day or so. If it persists or gets worse, then see your doctor.
