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!

if they ask why we left in the first place
say we were young and we were so in love
...i guess we just needed space.

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.
