Intense pubic area itching??

Posted , 7 users are following.

horrific post title 😦

but does anyone else here get intense itching where there pubic area is? it's not b.c of shaving, I used to get that sometimes before all this peri hell but this is totally diff. this is more like an internal itch and I've gotten it before in my boobs. i feel like it has to be estrogen related and tho I still feel at times my suffering has to be more than hormones, it makes me feel like all this is in fact hormones. no other illness would make you itch so intensely in that area. it's annoying but I could take it easily over my debilitating symptoms.

    Hello LKL... Are you post menopause, or are you still in Peri? You are right ....it’s estrogen related and it’s maddening !! But at least you know what’s going on and that is huge 😉 Women notice vaginal itching more often during menopause, due to low levels of estrogen. Which can make the vaginal tissues drier and thinner than usual. This is called, vaginal atrophy, or atrophic vaginitis. It can make the vagina/vulva feel itchy, painful. It may also make sex more painful. if you call your pharmacist, I think he can recommend something for it, less expensive than the doctor, and pharmacists know a thousand times more than the doctors 😉

      Lkl.... Just ignore that “Ladywear“ person, what a rude nim whit. Its probably a man pretending to be a woman to vent his frustrations on here. No woman would say that to another woman ! Anyhoo, it’s still estrogen related, try taking a Benadryl and see if that helps. It’s one of the stages of perimenopause, it’s maddening I know;) Also, block that 'ladywear', she’s got no business talking to anybody like that on this forum. People like that need to be blocked and ignored ! Have a good day !

      thanks for your response. this is a minmal symptom for me but bc i have been so sick over this last year, anything that I know is hormone related, helps to ease my mind and tell me that as unbelievable as it is, it's prob all hormones. this one I.m almost positive is estrogen/hormone related, so. I actually welcome it as crazy as that sounds. I agree, no one who has ever been thru this, especially the extreme end of it would make a comment like that. as horrible as it sounds, I have actually wished for cancer at times b.c with that, you know what you are dealing with. you either get better or die. this is a beast that is completely foreign and has no ending in site. oh. and you dont get disability for it either. you have to struggle thru every moment and still handle life responsibilities. horrific.

    yes i do. it will happen for a couple of days and then disappear for a while. it either wakes me up or i notice it when i am trying to go to sleep. the fact that it wakes me up makes me believe that it is hormones. does it feel prickly? lol. i know all this sounds so funny (we have to laugh its so bad sometimes) and sorry i missed whatever comment that was.
