Hello, sometimes harmonal imbalance can also cause vaginal dryness which could be responsible for itching . Since you have taken ipill I suspect harmonal imbalance. If could also be due to fungal infection ( candida infection) in such cases you need antifungal medicines. Wait for a month if it doesn't subside consult gynaecologist.
