Itchy vagina after menstural cycle

Last week I had my period, and towards the end of it, on my last 3 days, my vagina hole (the hole where you have sex) would burn a little bit when I'd pee. It also hurt a tiny bit to put a tampon in. The burning went away but my now vagina hole is so itchy. I have slight odor, but not all the time, it sort of comes at random times. I have more discharge than regular, but it is not clumpy, it's just white. I have not had sex recently and the last time I did have sex, a condom was worn. I have not seen a doctor yet either. I was just curious to know what this could possibly be, should I see a doctor or should I wait a few days and see if it gets any better? I'd also like to add the soap sometimes irritates my vagina, and while I shower I might use a little too much soap around there, could that be a possible reason?

Hi Anonymous, It is possible that you have yeast infection. Having discharge is normal but if you're feeling itchy try using over counter products such as vagisil wash and vagisil cream. These help alot but if you're still concerned go see your GYN.

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question. You may have a yeast infection. You can purchase Monistat over the counter to stop the infection as this is pretty common for women. If you are concerned about possible sexually transmitted diseases, you should go see your doctor. I hope this helps.
