Welcome to ehealthforum.

The itching in vagina after having intercourse is an indication of infection or inflammation in vagina.

Report to your healthcare provider or doctor to get examined and a possible vaginal swab test done to see what organism is causing the infection. Once confirmed, your doctor will start you on treatment.

Avoid having unprotected intercourse. If any infection is detected, then both you and your partner should get treated simultaneously.

Take care.
