  • The itching may be sure to dryness. No discharge or odor, doesn't sound like a yeast infection.

  • It could still be a yeast infection (or some other kind of infection), or it could just be hormonal changes from pregnancy. Get some Monistat to use until your appointment (just the cream on the outside where it's itching), that should help you feel better till you know for sure what's going on.

  • When I was pregnant and had a yeast infection .. I didnt even know it! I went to the dr for cramping/aching really bad and she done a test and said i had a BAD yeast infection. I had noticed a little itching on the outside but didnt think anything of it since it wasnt accompanied by the discharge and stuff. so it could be a YI.

  • could be, try the Summer's Eve cleansers. I dry out real bad sometimes, and it itches, and when i use that non-soap wash for sensitive skin it generally corrects that for me by restoring the pH... might give it a shot, 3$ for the bottle, and it should last you a couple months, at least.

  • Sounds like a yeast infection. Get the cream to help you out until Friday when you'll be able to find out for sure.

    Also, you could try going panty-less or wear loose fitting cotton ones. And after you shower, make sure you are completely dry down there, you can even use a hairdryer on low. That should also help with the itching.
