Experiencing some itching and burning on the lips of my vagina since after period. Not the first time this had happened but didn't keep track before.?

Possible yeast: If you are having a white discharge at time of your menstrual period, you may be having a yeast (monilia, candida) vaginal infection. Do get evaluated, since treatment may be simple. Treatment may be more difficult if you have diabetes or have recently been taking antibiotics. Hope that helps.

Possibly LS: Lichen sclerosus (ls) is skin disorder that most often affects the genitals. It can cause permanent scarring. It often presents with pain, itch, or irritation in the area, and can progress to tearing and scarring. This can be treated but seems to do better if treated earlier. Get to a dermatologist or gynecologist asap.

Been feeling little tiny bumps on the inner and outer of my vagina lips. It itches. And gets irritated when I scratch it. Always get it after period?

Not an easy answer: There are various types of "bumps" that can occur in the vaginal area. I would recommend that you go in to be examined to see what this is, preferably at the time that you are having the bumps. Being able to see what these bumps look like is critical in determining what they are.

4 days after period, having high volume of creamy white discharge. No odor or itching. Cause?

4 days after period, having high volume of creamy white discharge. No odor or itching. Cause?

Candida (yeast)?: Your symptoms resemble yeast infection, also called candida and monilia. Are you near your period? Have you been taking antibiotics? Do you have diabetes or high blood glucose ("sugar")? These factors can increase the chance for candida. This infection can improve with over-the-counter vagina creams or tablets. If no improvement, then see your medical provider. Hope that helps.

Spotting: Irregular spotting is one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections ; hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle.

I have been experiencing itching and burning in the vaginal area and my period came out black what's wrong with me?

Needs exam: Vaginal itching requires an exam for testing. Yeast infections, trichomoniasis and herpes are the most common causes. Black color blood just means it is older blood and is not usually a cause for concern.

Cyclic vaginal itching for numerous months. Gets worse towards onset of period, then goes away after period is over. Why, and how to treat?

Cyclic vaginal itching for numerous months. Gets worse towards onset of period, then goes away after period is over. Why, and how to treat?

See your doctor: There are women who experience these cyclic symptoms right before their periods. It does not necessarily mean something is wrong, but if it is new for you, please see your doctor. These changes can be caused by infection, hormones, or birth control. Your obgyn should be able to narrow down the causes and offer you some type of treatment.

Been on bc for 2 months, when I get my period there's thick brown but reddish discharge and bad itching, but goes away after period. Normal?

Wait for 2 cycles: Many times with the start of BCP's you may have "different periods" for a few months. This is probably just your body getting used to the medication. If after 4 cycles you are still concerned, then review this with your healthcare provider.

Every time I have my period about 3-4 days after. I have a foamy white discharge with no burning or itching. It's just agrivatong. Why?

Unsure: If its not an infection, I would not worry about it. It could be residual debris emerging from the vagina.

Hard to guess...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. Also, a woman can have a vaginal yeast problem, with or without pregnancy.
