Ok, since sometime when I was pregnant I have had this horrible itch down south on my girly parts lol. I do not have an STD or anything like that. My husband and I have only been with each other. But this itch drives me mad. I've had it for like 6 months now and it won't go away. It's not a yeast infection or anything like that, as far as I know. It just feels like a rash or bug bite or something that covers most of that area. It got worse after I gave birth and got my stitches on my perineum (which is where most of the itch is, and up around my clitoris and all that). Anybody ever have this problem? Does anyone know what it could be? Thanks!

Sounds to me like either bacterial vaginosis (similar to yeast infection but there could be a funky smell as well) that is easily cured with an antibiotic. Or it could be a type of hemroids. sometimes hemroids don't just burn they itch and it might not just be where your butt hole is but the whole area. Do some googling on hemroids and see if some of the symptoms match up.

Honestly, it does sound like a yeast infection. Personally, I have the best luck with vinegar/water douching, but you can try OTC medications or your doc can prescribe something.
