Vaginal itchiness: Perhaps allergy of some type. Are you and your partner using a condom or do you use some type of oil or lubricant? Does your partner wear cologne?

Yeast: Vaginal itching without discharge can indicate infections like yeast or stis like herpes. It can indicate an allergic reaction to household products like certain soaps and laundry detergents. There are also some skin conditions liked lichen sclerosis which can cause vaginal itching. Itching after sex often indicates dryness and can be treated with sexual lubricants.
