early last week, i trimmed some of my pubic hair. since then, the inner part of my labia is dry and itchy. i don't have any odd discharge that i've noticed, but it definitely hurt pretty badly to have intercourse and i had to stop. could i have a yeast infection?
also, i am in college so it's pretty impossible for me to see MY doctor. should i be alarmed at the quality of college gynecological exams?
i am also supposed to get my period on wednesday. could this be a symptom of that? it's never happened before which is why i'm thinking it's not.
please help! i need this horrifying itchiness to stop!

Are you up to date with STI checks? If not, it *could* be a symptom of that, or as you say maybe a yeast infection. I don't know about college gynecological exams over there but I'm guessing they should be fine - much better to get this checked out.
