you're welcome clueless!
then it definately sounds to me like a slight yeast imbalance during that week due to a change in hormones there's unfortunately nothing you can do about the hormone fluctuations, but try for the week before your period and the week following to stay away from carbohydrates as much as possible-this can be tricky with the cravings and all so if you must have something sweet, try sugar free jello with whipped cream and strawberries(I'm getting hungry) LOL! try as hard as you can to stay away from the bad carbs as much as you can even during the other 2 weeks of the month.I have found that by doing this, it also relieves my pms symptoms and bloating! it has also slighty lightened the intensity and duration too! yeast crave sugar, so if you starve them of what they want you can in a large part prevent any overgrowths. I really hope this all helps you it really stinks being itchy!! and I am a little suprised that the gyno didn't even collect a specimen usually they will just to be sure, but if you end up trying this and not getting relief, go back and tell him it's bothering you.one way to kind of 'curb' the major hormonal fluctuation during that week is birth control. well, good luck with everything!!
