I continue to have a problem with vaginitis the day after having intercourse. I get an itch at the entrance of the vagina. I have treated this many times I and my partner have been tested on several occasions and the doctor finds nothing wrong with either of us. However it continues to happen and I can't seem to solve the problem.

Topiramate (Topamax), a preventive medicine for migraines caused my vaginitis.

I have had vaginitis more than once actually. It was due to douching and the usage of feminine deodorant sprays. Once I developed a urinary tract infection simultaneously with vaginitis and had to have that treated first.

I had some odor sometimes when I urinated, a little itching and discharge with vaginitis.

I am 19 years old and my vagina itches very much except during my periods. It gets red and the skin looks thin after itching. It even gets swelled up, I am very much scared and fed up too.

I recently began using NuvaRing for birth control and within a few days of inserting it I noticed I was having the symptoms of vaginitis, I've only had one yeast infection in the past and that was due to a medication during pregnancy so I'm quite sure the NuvaRing was the cause.
