crazy itching "down there" adult content

So, ever since I had my second baby I have had crazy vaginal itching. I don't know what it could be and I am very close to going in to have things checked out, but wanted to see if anyone might have an explaination first. It's just itching, and dryness no discharge or anything. It has been six months since I had him and the last two months have been worse. I am breastfeeding and have yet to get a period. any thoughts? anyone in the same boat?

  • I'd say stop stalling and see your doctor. Probably some kind of yeast infection, really commmon after birth. You don't want to let it go on though. See your doctor.

  • Yeast would be my guess, too. Get checked so you know for sure.

  • They also have those new home yeast tests you could try OTC. Maybe try that first?

  • you could try buying the over the counter yeast infection stuff and using the cream to rub on the outside where it itches, if it continues, you will have to use the tubes that go with it
