Hello, I am new to this board. I have a very personal and irritating health issue that I am hoping to find some answers for here. Ever since having my daughter 2 years ago I have had chronic and sometimes severe vaginal itching. I have been to 3 different dr's about this issue, and no one has been able to correctly diagnose me or help me yet. I have tried topical creams, yeast infection meds, switching to non-perfumed laundry detergent and soap, etc. It is really interferring with my life at this point. My husband and I would like to start trying to conceive our second child, but I am uncomfortable most of the time and don't want to have sex. When we do, I have burning and swelling afterwards. There is no discharge accompaning the itching, and it seems to maybe be external, however at times it is so severe that it feels internal. I think that the problem could possibly be hormonal, as I am starting to see that it occurs about 1-2 weeks before my period shows up, and almost never occurs during my period. However, when I was on the pill it did not change anything. Any help or advice as to what could be my problem and how to treat it would be so very much appreciated. Thank you!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
