Hi, this is a little embarrassing in a few days I can ask the dr- I wanted to know if anyone else has this. I really don't think I have a yeast infection, not the same symptoms and the area is red/irritated. But the top part of my "who-ha", inside the lips itches like crazy. I don't want to be too expicit, I hope you all know where I am describing. Also the sides of the inside between the lips itch like crazy. The itching is NOT actually in the vaginal opening. I originally thought it was a yeast and the dr. told me to use monistat but not inserting the cream, that didn't really work. I have found that vagisil works the best, but it's gone on just about every day for alomost a month now. Some days it's not as bad/some days it's gone. I am clean and shower sometimes 2 times a day because I think it helps a little. But does anyone else have this?!

I am 31 weeks and have beenexperiencing the same thing for several months. It's not as bad now as it used to be. I don't know exactly what it is but I know too that it is not a yeast infection anymore though i think it started out that way. From what I was watching on a pregnancy program it is pretty normal, but they didn't say why.

Hi ladies, thanks for your replies. Well at least I don't feel so alone, even though it's only us! Ha! I did ask the dr. a bit ago and she said that it's because of my hormone levels. She told me to use monistate because it's probably a small yeast building up (like I mentioned I use it for a long time and it didn't work). I went to vagisil and it seems to work! The only thing- I gotta apply it 2-3 times a day. I noticed some days are better too. I don't know. Like Jennbj says, it'll probably get better as time goes on. Thank you again!!

Hi there ladies. I'm 27wks and for about 2 wks I had terrible itching in the same areas and I found out from my dr that I had a urine infection, which is common during pregnancy, but must be treated. He put me on Amoxil antibiotics but I can honestly say that the one remedy that really helped me was from my aunt
who's a nurse and this maybe disgusting, but it worked for me. PLAIN COLD YOUGART....apply as a viginal cream after a shower, morning and evening, apparently it has something called culture in it and helps to soothe the itchiness. Nothing to loose, try it.

I have the same thing and sometimes I itch so bad and I scratch till im red down there, not meaning to be. At first I thought it was a yeast infection too but it wasent and than I thought maybe a reaction to latex (I noticed it would really be bad after an internal was done). What I did was soak myself down there and wash with antibacterial soap once every 2 days (because soap irritation makes its worse) and would sleep with a pantiliner to help absorb the extra moisture down there. I also started eating a tub of yougart every 3 days for over a week, it has been 1 1/2 weeks now since I have been irritated down there.

Hi ladies, I have been tring several different things. I have found it may have been the panitliner that I was wearing regularly causing the irritation. I don't wear them all the time and I also got a different brand of liners, along with eating yogurt on a semi daily basis. I have found a lot of relief! I don't wear liners daily either, mainly when I am going to be out. Thanks for all your advice!

TO: DownbutnotOUT

You mentioned that it gets worse after you have an internal done... this rly hits home!!

I am 36 weeks pregnant and was absolutely fine... no itching, have been keeping clean and havent even had sex in the last 2 weeks! So it was easy to notice the fact that after I went to my doctors 2 days ago and had a swab done and a quick cervix check that I've been having this issue!

I read somewhere about BV (Bacterial Vaginosis).. it said its basically caused when the natural "good" vaginal bacteria are wiped away and replaced with "bad" bacteria.

Maybe thats what we all have - its not a yeast infection!

I'm very very glad to hear from you tho that its not just me who thinks my doctor visit caused this horrid pain! I went to bed hours ago and just woke up now because the pain was so bad! :x
