  • Yeast infection, a reaction to new detergent, tampons or liners, soap... Hate to say it, but could also be a disease. You never really know. Have you ever had a YI before? If so, then it is likely you will get them again. But if you or your SO has recently been "risky" (you KWIM) you probably ought to get checked. But if not, have you used anything new recently? A new brand of something or scented liners/tampons, etc, might elicit a reaction like that.

  • Rinse really well when you bathe or shower to get every bit of soap off. I agree with Iskra's excellent answer. In addition, you should probably not take a bath, but shower instead. If even after careful rinsing to remove all soap, you are still unbearably itchy, then it would be a good idea to be checked out by your gyn, since you would find out exactly and how to treat it. Good luck!

  • if it is a yeast infection, which it probably is... itching is one of the tell tale signs... it's not the start of one. it's a full blown one. a yeast infection starts on the inside of your vagina, and it's not till it moves to the outside that it itches. my doctor recommends the 7day treatment versus the 3day or one day. says they are more effective. i would treat with monistat, and if it's still not gone after that... call your doctor. that's what i would do if it were me... but of course, i'm no doctor :)
    i'm pregnant and had a month long yeast infection from HELL about 2months ago. i now consider myself an expert. :)

  • Yah, what's with the vajay jay thing? Are you 10? It's a vagina, or a labia or mons venus if you like. Really.
    Yes, you could have yeast. Go to the doctor.
