Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms could be considered as normal as the pH of secretions change at time of periods and you are more vulnerable to infections. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the cause for your symptom and proceed with treatment as indicated. Get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection (if you are sexually active). Avoid use of douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes, deodorants etc. Drink plenty of water. Use loose cotton undergarments. Avoid tight fitting clothes.
