Vaginal opening always itches one day after sex, and goes off after about a week. No yeast infection or BV, what is the cause?

Vaginal opening always itches one day after sex, and goes off after about a week. No yeast infection or BV, what is the cause?

Simple irritation: Irritation from something chemical or physical. If condoms or lubricants are used, it could be an irritant response to that or perhaps if your partner uses fragranced soaps or other products on the genital area that could provoke what you're describing. Simple stretching/trauma from the act of sex could be the cause, but that would tend to improve with repeated encounters so seems less likely. ...Read more

There is tingling around my vagina and my butthole. My buttcrack itches as well. Not sure if it is a yeast infection? Using monistat hasn't helped.

Can you get an infection from your vibrator? I clean it after every use but my vagina is on fire and itches so bad what could it be? Yeast infection?

Vibrator hygiene: Vibrators should be cleansed after every use with mild soap and water, and if it is plastic and not latex a rubbing alcohol "wipe off". Some vibrators will accept a condom covering prior to use which minimizes pH changes. If the vibrator still has soap or oil based lubricants on it pH changes yielding yeast infections are common. Have your GYN MD examine the vaginal discharge for an infection. ...Read more

I have a yeast infection and suddenly I have two bumps on my vagina what do you think is it...... It itches sometimes itch but I had it for weeks?

Yeast infection: Yeast infection normally would not cause bumps on the vagina. It can be disturbing in that it causes itchy discharge. If you do have fungal infection on the skin adjacent to the vagina, it can cause bumps, though. Without someone looking at you, it's really hard to tell what those are. ...Read more

Goodnight if you had unprotected intercourse and one week later you contract an infection that itches, but no discharge could it be an yeast infection?

Goodnight if you had unprotected intercourse and one week later you contract an infection that itches, but no discharge could it be an yeast infection?

Yes, and maybe more-: See your doctor to have the appropriate tests done - though certain sexually transmitted infections (sti's) can present with discharge (eg. Gonorrhea, chlamydia), one can still "atypically" present with these two sti's. With unprotected sex, one must also consider other infections such as herpes (hsv-2 especially), hiv, and syphilis depending on the discussion you will have with your doctor. ...Read more
