Hi everyone, I have a concern..A few weeks ago, I had terrible vaginal itching for about 2 weeks...I don't know if it had to do with my IBS or not, but it was not fun. It finally went away, but I don't know if I should be worried of it coming back or just being in remission...has this happened to anyone else? I didn't have many other symptoms, besides a little different discharge, but nothing really bad.

It could be thrush (especially if your discharge was thick and white and kinda ummm chunky)which is an overgrowth of candida. If you see a doctor they'll take a swab and diagnose it otherwise you can just go to the chemist and buy something over the counter. It's relatively easily treated but you do need to treat it cause it doesn't generally just go away on it's own. I don't know how old you are but you'll probably find that using tampons or having sex is kinda painful as long as you have it. Hope this helps

My discharge wasn't really thick, it was a tid bit white, but not really chunky either. Thanks for replying, if it gets worse I'll be sure to ask my doctor about it.
