Bacterial Vaginosis, Yeast Infection, or...?

My crotch itches.

To be specific, my outer labia is sore, red and inflamed and my vulva, vagina, and urethra are all burning.

I have regular (approx. once per cycle) brief bouts of BV where for 24-48 hours I will have a smelly discharge and mild pain upon urination. It clears up on its own, happens approx. 10 days before my period, and isn't a big deal; my doctor says taking antibiotics would do more harm than good.

However, off and on I will have weeks-long bouts of crotch pain. It's pretty bad right now, and I'm wondering whether I should go into the doctor and ask them to test for yeast, or if it's just my usual BV gone completely out of control.

To the doctor? Yea or nay?
