*Irritation every month right before period*

Hello everyone-what a heaven sent this was to find this forum!
My problem is...every month now for about the past year or so about a week/to a few days right before my period my vagina gets very irritated. Not to the point where i get paranoid but it gets a little itchy and irritated with very minimal odorless discharge (normal day-to-day i never have any kind of discharge)
Does anyone else experience this? And if so--what did 'they' tell you it is? Or how to remedy it?

I've been experiencing the same thing for about a year now. When I saw my GYN for my annual check up in 2006 I mentioned the itching to him. I had all my usual testing pap smear along with other testing and they all came back normal. He prescribed me some itch cream called Nystatin and it works pretty good.  But for the most part, this irritation just started out of the clear blue. So don't panic, make an appointment with your GYN so that he/she can further assist you.

It could be a mild yeast infection.  Alot of women experience this right before their period starts.

thx for the responses...a mild yeast infection?
I have suspected that because that is kind of how it feels...but every month like clockwork?
Is that unhealthy? normal?
and if anyone knows...might it be my hormones or something triggering it?
