For the past 4 months, I've developed a terrible itch/redness in the vaginal area about 5 days prior to my period
; it goes away 2 or 3 days after I 'start.'
I've never had a yeast infection
before, but the first month it happened I assumed that's what it was. I treated it OTC to save a trip to the doctor. Since then, I've just lived with it until it passed.
I have an annual exam coming up within the next month, and this problem is top of my list for discussion.
