In brief: Infection

No, stress does not generally cause the vagina to itch.
Infections (including yeast) can cause the vagina to itch, and "stress" via increased cortisol secretion could affect your immune system so that infections show up more. Please see your physician or a gynecologist about vaginal itching and discharge.
