I have noticed within the last couple of weeks that both my vagina and anus are really itchy. I have never had a yeast infection but from what I have read this seems to not be an option. No strange discharge or any other symptoms. I slept with someone about three weeks ago, it wasnt unprotected but I am a bit worried. Any help on what this could be would really help! I am a bit embarrassed to go to my doctor.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could be attributed to infective cause. Do not delay in visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination and further investigation to identify the causative agent. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Avoid use of much spice in food. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes.
Take care.
