Dictionaria (dictionaria) wrote in vaginapagina,


For the past couple of months I've been having a lot of trouble with my vulva feeling itchy. A few months ago I did try treating it as a yeast infection and that seemed to make it better for a while, but it came back. I don't notice any weird smells or even an unusual texture to my discharge. I'm not at all sexually active. I am on NuvaRing.

So I have a few theories:

-It wasn't a yeast infection and I only imagined an improvement in symptoms. I trim the hair down there fairly short, could that irritate me?
-I wash myself with body wash, not on the vulva itself, but nearby areas. Could this cause a yeast infection?
-Is there anything else that could cause these symptoms?

Help figuring this out?
