Sudden itching down under!

Posted , 7 users are following.

I have had no periods for a year so I guess it's officially menopause now. Last evening suddenly I had severe burning and itching in and around my vagina. I have never in my life had any issues with any kind of infection or urinary infection or any problems whatever in the region. I think I need to see my doctor. I've been on HRT for a year now, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone combo. Has anyone faced a similar problem?

    Hi mee....this is very common on this forum including myself. ..due to lowering hormone levels, we can be prone to more infection...have it checked out if worrying or use an over the counter vaginal cream for relief.....hope it clears up soon. CK

    Could just be dryness.

    I started this yesterday as well--  I'm the same, no issues before..  I bought some cream for now and if it doesn't clear up then I'll have to try something else.

    This has been a new symptom for me this past year. I am trying to keep track of it. It seems like it happens the 4-5 days before I am scheduled to get my period (If I have one). In fact - it was really bad last night; Im due for a period any day now. It's not all day - it lasts for about 10-15 minutes for me. I've tried those feminine itching wipes in the past...mine is on the outside/upper labia/clitoris area. This might be different than yours? I get really itchy all over my body in different places this same time each month.
