    it itches, basically... and it looks quite red and kinda swollen down there.
    i had it when i started taking the pill, very annoying.

    :ugh: I've never gotten red and swollen. It does itch and you should have a light creamy discharge.

    Go see the Doc. You could have candida/trich/yeast/ or some other whatever. Abstain from sex until you know what it is and if you've been "Busy" have your partner treated as well.
