Why do I have chronic vaginal itch? IKYANMD

I have had off and on vaginal itch for 2 years. I am a virgin in my mid twenties and have seen OBGYN many times, I don't have any disease or infection that they could find with urine tests, and from swabbing my vagina. The doctor yesterday said it's probably a skin problem, they just recommended me a 0.5% hydrocortizone cream, which from my understanding only treats the symptoms, and should only be used for a short time. I mostly wear skirts to keep the area dry, and I wear cotton underwear. I shower regularly, and my job is sitting in an office, and I live in a warm city. During my menstruation the itching usually gets more intense. What other things can I try? I just came from seeing a 4th OBGYN who also prescribed me a hydrocortizone cream. Thanks.

Why is Ob/Gyn pronounced Oh-bee/Gee-why-en?

In the US, in my experience, the medical specialties of obstetrics and gynecology are commonly referred to as "Oh-bee/gee-why-en." Does anyone know why? Why not simply pronounce it "obb- gyne" (the first syllables of the two words)? [more inside]

Ob/Gyn in NYC?

My wife and I generally have an excellent sex life, but occasionally when I try to penetrate her she experiences extreme discomfort. Fingers are fine, but penis is not (I'm somewhat thick). This is regardless of position, lube, amount of foreplay, with/without condom, etc. She's been to a couple doctors, but neither seemed particularly invested in really getting to the bottom of it, even to the point of being somewhat dismissive. Sadly, this seems to be the default of most doctors these days. So...can anyone suggest an Ob/Gyn (or other appropriate specialist) in NYC? Someone that will take her seriously and really do the work to figure out what's going on? Thanks...from both of us.

OB visits put stress on my pregnancy

Which prenatal visits and tests really matter? I'm pregnant with my second child and a LOT busier than when I had just one. Before I sit down with my doc and she tells me I need to have 1,398 tests and come in roughly every other day, I'd like to be better informed about which visits and tests REALLY make a difference.

Should I go to the gynecologist if I'm a virgin?

Should I go to the gynecologist if I'm a virgin?[MI]

I'm 29, have never been to see one, haven't had genital contact with anyone, do not need birth control, and nothing's irregular down there except maybe the occasional period (and not so much this year). So I tend to think no, especially because the membrane in question is still mostly intact and I don't want the first penetration to be by speculum/doctor, or to ever happen. But maybe that latter concern, and my general feeling that the doctor's going to consider me a freak unlike anyone else, is coloring my perception of whether or not I need to go. So, is that a silly reason not to go? I'm pretty sure that the standard medical professional's response would be that I'm long overdue for a such a visit, but what would you do in my situation? Do I really need a pap smear given my background? Is this going to hurt? I posted this at a virgin forum but only got one response from a pro-abstinence guy whose comments didn't have much bearing on my concerns.
