Itchy

Nita_ - March 24

I've been getting itchy spells down there and it seems a lot more at night then during the day. Was going to be calling my midwife abt it but then it stops and then starts again after 2-3 days. It's been going on and off..what could it be? I was thinking it might be an yeast infection but what i've read abt it I'm also supposed to have greenish discharge which I don't. What could be the reason?

it could be an infection. Id mention it to ur doctor..I thouht i had an infection too..turns out its just because its so dry down there at times. A water based lubricant cant help

The discharge with a yeast infection is usually white and cottage cheese like, though there can be no discharge. I've never heard of a green discharge with a yeast infection. If you are itchy down there I would mention it to my midwife. They can check a sample of the discharge under a microscope and determine if it is a yeast infection. If not that, it could be a detergent or soap that is irritating you. A couple of years ago I was having that prob and didn't think it was yeast because it came and went, turned out it was yeast. Another word of advice, if it turns out to be yeast, make sure your partner gets treated too, even if he's not having symptoms. I suffered recurrently for several months because DH and I didn't know he needed to be treated, too.
