Why is my vagina so itchy? I haven’t had any sex with anyone.

Good question!

Itching can potentially be a sign of an infection.

Some STIs (sexually transmitted infections) can have symptoms that include itching. It is important to know that at Teen Clinic we define “sex” as oral, anal, vaginal intercourse, or genital to genital contact.  If any of these types of sexual contact happen without protection (like condoms or dental dams), there is a risk of STI transmission.

However there are infections like yeast and Bacterial Vaginosis  that can occur organically from imbalances in the body (stress, diet, and clothing can all contribute to this). These are not STIs, and can be treated.

The only way to know what is going on for sure is to see a medical professional. They will be able to determine what is going on, and provide treatment if needed! You can do this at our Teen Clinic. Give us a call to make an appointment! 303-442-5160
