Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community!

There are several things that can affect vaginal health.  Are you experiencing any other symptoms?   Anything like:

  • Change in color, odor or amount of vaginal discharge
  • Vaginal redness or other signs of irritation

Yeast infections and other vaginal conditions can cause itching.  But chemical irritants found in toilet paper, detergents, soaps, vaginal creams, bath products, vaginal contraceptives and feminine hygiene products can cause itching as well.  A fluctuation in your estrogen levels can also cause itching.

If you experience any other symptoms and/or if the itching persist, make an appointment to see your doctor.


Here is additional information for you to review:

I hope this helps!

Be well,
