I was just wondering if a mild to medium itching, but not dry vagina is normal before a woman's period? I've been itching for about 3-4 days now and my period is supposed to start within the next day or so.

Sometimes I itche to where I become visibly uncomfortable, and other times it doesn't bother me at all. I've had yeast infections before and it's definately not severe enough to be one of those.

Is it normal to itch before your period? If so, is there anything I can do to alleviate some of the discomfort until I start? Possibly some of the external vulvar cream that Monistat produces?

well, it'd be a good idea to isolate the cause of the itching first. Maybe you're having some kind of dermatitis or allergic reaction? Maybe it's really mild yeast bloom? Ask your doctor about it so you can find a better way of controlling it than just applying a feminine itch cream (then again, you may find that's all it needs)
