  • Yes. It is usually caused from your vagina stretching. Its kind of like how your belly itches as it is stretching. I warm bath usually helped me.

  • Is your discharge clear or white, slippery and smelling okay, or is it more clotted, white/yellow/funky, sour smelling? You want the clearish stuff. Otherwise, it's a good sign of infection. Try sleeping with no panties, to let your girlie bits breathe, too. I would get seen, just to rule anything bad out. GL!
