A doctor can check for things that might make you feel so itchy. There are a number of things that could cause itchiness.

If aren't familiar with your vagina and the area around it, learn about yourself. You can get used to the normal feel of the skin around your vagina. You can also check how your normal discharge changes during each part of your monthly cycle. Some women decide to look at their vaginas using a mirror.

Once you are familiar with the ways your regular discharge changes, you will know if your discharge departs from its normal textures, colors, and odor. If it becomes thick and clumpy and maybe has a different odor while you are itching, then see a doctor to find out if you have a yeast infection. Yeast infections are common, easy to treat, non-contagious, non-dangerous, and nothing to worry about, but they are itchy. Some women get yeast infections more often than other women. Some women never have a yeast infection.

You will be glad when you know the reason for your itching, whether it is a yeast infection or something else. When the itching is relieved, you'll feel back to your normal self.

This can be because the ph levels are disturbed during that time. If the problem is restricted to only before and after periods you can use Lactacyd during those days, but dont use it everyday of the month.
