Can the birth control ortho micronor (norethindrone) cause itchiness or irritation to the outside of my vagina?

Yeast? The birth control pills can't cause itching or irritation of the vaginal area but they can modify the natural ph and environment of the vagina and this might increase the risk of a yeast infection. Itching and irritation can also be cause by other conditions such as herpes. It is best to be examine by an obgyn to determine whether it is an yeast infection or another condition.
