When you're on your period, your pH levels are all kinds of wonky. Try a pH balanced body wash and eat lots of yogurt while you're on your period. If you don't like those options, pick up an acidophilus pill.

I had a few women in my family who would suffer from them before or after their periods. Don't treat them over the counter, as Stormy said above it's just pH changes and if you treat them as a yeast infection you might end up with a full blown one.

Otherwise.. just what Stormy said.

It could be exactly that...just a Ph change that is acting like a yeast overgrowth. Try taking only showers no baths, do not wash inside your labia with anything but cool water, drink some cranberry juice or take a cranberry supplement, and trying a Ph balancer could help immensely. I use one when I notice that my body is out of whack and it helps relieve the symptoms almost immediately. Don't douche, use a tampon or use ANY soap inside the labia. Don't use over the counter yeast infection meds either.
You could also try cutting down on the amount of store bought bread you eat through the month. Prepackaged bread is loaded, sometimes with well over 200 times the amount of yeast necessary to make bread rise. Some women are very sensitive to this excess yeast and end up with very hard to treat and overwhelming yeast infections. Biscuits or other non yeast breads are a good substitute.
