Maybe a yeast infection?

I am 20 years old, the first time I had sex was in August. After sex, I really itched down there.. I didn't think to much about it, but Everytime after sex following the first time, it still itched. I thought it might be the condoms.. But then it stopped bothering me. My bf goes down on me a lot too. But now my vaginia doesn't itch as much, but my clitoris does.. I've never been to a gyno, and I'm scared to.. I don't have family support for things like that. Im thinking maybe I have a yeast infection. Is there anything I can take to help it go away without going to a doctor? Also shoul I be worried about my partner? Please help!

Itchiness suggests that there is a thrush infection.

This is a very common fungal infection that might affect either male or female genitals. It is easily treated with an antifungal cream such as Canesten.

You can either get it on prescription from your GP or you can buy it at the chemists.

Both you and your partner should use the treatment for a week and not have sex without a condom during that period.

If that doesn't work go and see your GP or family planning clinic to be checked that it isn't a different kind of infection.

Yours sincerely
