Yeah, talk to your OB about it. You may have an infection that needs to be treated. Especially at your stage in pg, if it is BV (which is what I had in early pg and the itching you described is what I experienced), it needs to get treated asap. It may be nothing, but as far as I'm concerned, it's better to be safe than sorry! Good luck and I hope the itching ends soon... I know how it can drive you crazy!

BV does not usually have itching as a symptom so don't panic yet about that. It is probably just a yeast infection. Please do see your doctor. She told me to go on Monistat when I had one and it did not work. Then she perscribed Tarazol and that cleared it right up.

Sorry... guess I wasn't clear. I wasn't saying that you have BV... just that some infections you can get during pg can do some harm if they go untreated, so you should definitely get checked out. Sorry if I caused panic.

I know what you are going through, I had that problem that followed the constant bladder infections. Try Vagisil for the exterior only.
