I am sexually active. I had consulted a gynecologist. She examined me and prescribed me some medication for a week. Now that 3 weeks have passed since, the itching has came back again. I have 2 questions.
1. Since I was examined by a gynec, can I be sure that I don't have any sexually transmitted diseases?
2. I had a thyroid and sugar test done. They were both fine. Why is my vagina always itchy?

The common cause of recurrence is getting it again from your partner. It's better to get the treatment for both and in the mean time abstain from sex for 10 days. Using condom will protect u from std. If still u have recurrence then blood investigations and vaginal swab culture will be needed to rule out sexually transmitted diseases.
You need bleed tests like HIV, VDRL and PAP smear to be sure about the infection part.
And maintain proper vaginal hygiene.
Use LACTACYD for maintaining an acidic vaginal pH.
Don't take unnecessary antibiotics again and again as they disrupt the normal vaginal flora .
In fact to restore the good bacteria you may take a course of Probiotics like ECOFLORA or FLOREVA after consulting your gynaecologist.
And most important of all use a condom while having sex to prevent STDs.
