Question Vaginal itch!

Hi, this is quite embarassing!

Ok, so the opening of my vagina is itchy. It doesn't smell weird and there is no discharge (well now I can't tell since I got my period yesterday). But on Saturday, when it started I had no discharge and everything smells normal.

I have two theories though as to how I got it. And I don't know what it is, it definitely isn't a UTI, as those burn and are around the urethra and now it's itchy around my vagina.

Ok, first theory: on Friday night me and my boyfriend had sex. It's a monogamous relationship and we both lost it to each other. We had unprotected sex (I am on the pill). We had anal intercourse, and he washed his penis. Hours later we had vaginal intercourse.

Second theory: my sister usually suffers yeast infections. My mom, I think, was also dealing with a yeast infection a couple of days ago. It's not like we share underwear or clothes or our towels! But I wonder if as we share our bathroom, this could have something to do with it?

What could I do? I can't afford to go to the gyno again, I went like a week ago and it was very expensive. I didn't have any of these symptoms back then. I don't feel awful or in pain, it just itches and it's uncomfortable and I know this is not normal. Help, please?

Re: Vaginal itch!

Even though he washed his penis he can't get up inside his penis to 'wash' so I wouldn't be surprised that you will continue to get a lot of vaginal infections from anal to vaginal intercourse(it would be so much better if he wore a condom with anal intercourse). In the meantime you can go buy some Monostat at your local store and follow the directions and treat yourself. If it doesn't solve the problem then you will have to go back to the doctor.
