I know I have posted this before about the itching. I am going to try the cocoa butter. However I wanted to ask if any of you if you have experienced any itching down in your girlie parts. I am sorry for the personal nature of this question and it is embarrassing for me to ask this question. But I have been experiencing a lot of itching down there to the point that I feel as though my pubic hair is stratching me. I am using a medicine (cream) that my doctor gave me because he said I had vulvitis. It does help but I just wanted to know if anyone on here is experiencing or has experienced this while pregnant. Again, sorry for this question, it is embarrassing to ask this question but just wanted to know. Thank you.
It's good you've talked to your doctor. How long have you been using the cream? I know when I've had yeast infections (which I get when I'm pregnant) that it takes a couple days to feel better down there. If it keeps up ask the doctor. I'm not comfortable messing around with different creams down there. KWIM? I'd rather leave it up to the doctor to tell me what to do.
I got yeast infections with my last three pregnancies and they're not fun. It's usually in 2nd tri around 16-20 weeks seems like it hit me. Not sure why. But, you can use the OTC meds. Just check with your doctor first. Some want you to do the seven day, some the three. I know they said no one day meds because they were too strong.
