    Itchy Vagina
    An_253312 posted:
    I have been experiencing an itchy vulva for almost 3 weeks now. I have not visited the doc about it yet. I had protected sex on the 9th of this month and unprotected sex on the 16th, but itching started a little before probably after my last period which was the 26th-30th of July. So i dont know what the problem is. I assumed it is yeast infection (i only have the itchy symptom and normal white discharge). I would do anything to avoid going to the doc,but if it persists shortly after my next period (next week) then i will surely visit. I need opinions. Thanks in advance. #help
