STD Signs and Symptoms: Vaginal Itch
Vaginal itch is a common sign of various sexually transmitted diseases or STDs. Vaginal itch can be accompanied by a burning sensation while urinating, pain during sex, unusual discharge, offensive odor, rashes, or sores.
STDs That Cause Vaginal Itch
Vaginal itch can be caused by STDs gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, and genital herpes. Vaginal itch and other STD symptoms can often mimic less serious conditions such as yeast infections, shaving irritation, or ingrown hairs. However, STDs in women can cause serious reproductive problems if left untreated or undiagnosed so it is important to take action promptly. Since STD symptoms in women are often similar, only STD testing can determine the cause.
Private STD Testing
If experiencing vaginal itch and may have been exposed to an STD, private STD testing at a local lab or at-home STD kits can diagnose the problem.
