Why my vagina itch when I'm on my period?

Yeast infection. Perhaps the most common cause is monilia, a yeast which responds quickly to treatment with anti-fungal medications which are available in the form of vaginally-inserted suppositories or creams. If the infection and its symptoms do not clear quickly, a visit to ones gynecologist will enable a proper exam, diagnosis and treatment.
