Dear customer

Thank you for coming back online.

The symptoms you have described of having itching vagina & pain can be due to yeast infection.It is one of the most common infection in females.

For confirmation,you can take a home test:

Other possibilities are:infections of the cervix,uterine fibroids,Endometriosis,ovarian cyst,Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).

A pelvic exam is critical to rule out any uterine abnormality, a cervical polyp or fibroid, or a uterine infection.Also you need an ultrasound to evaluate the uterus and the ovaries.So I advice you to consult your gynecologist for the clinical examination to find out the root cause & treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
