It is intence and I even hurt myself trying to relieve the itch. I've been to the dr. I dont have a st. I do feel that my urine irratates me sometimes, I've tryed diaper ointment, vagisile, cornstarch powder, ebsome salts, all had some short relief. Is this hormone related?

Hi Anonymous,
Did the doctor provide you a diagnosis?

no, but I asumed it wasn't serious enough for them to call me with results. He gave me a pill in case it was a yeast infection, although I am still suffering.

go back to your Dr and ask about atrophic vaginitis. I have been using estrogen cream for this problem. over the counter creams will not help. I sympathize! It is an awful feeling when flare ups occur.
