Hello about 2 months ago i was diagnoses with the STD Trichomoniasis. I got the medication and was treated. Ever since then ive been using condoms during sex to prevent getting the disease again. But even though im using a condom, after sex i itch terribly. I am not discharging or have an odor. Im just itching uncontrollably on the outter area of my vagina.

I have to wonder if you are being re-infected. Was your partner also treated? There is also the possibility of you having an allergic reaction to latex. Do you find you itch even when not having sex? Have you tried Vagisil? Just a couple of thoughts on this.
Perhaps you have another bacteria or yeast going on, even without discharge or odor.
If it continues you should see your health care provider.

Since I got treated I have changed my sex patner and we use a condom to prevent being reinfected. The itchin happened immediately after I had sex. But I am goin to see a doctor on the next business day.
Thank you so much.
