When you ovulate, you’ll likely have heavier white or clear-ish discharge for a few days prior and a few days after, so it can last for a week sometimes. Are they running any tests when you actually have itching? When I used to get yeast infections, they would come on a day or two before I started menstruating, and they’d subside the day I started. I assume it had something to do with hormones, since estrogen and progesterone both drop in order to allow the uterine lining to slough. Maybe yeast is only an issue then, or maybe you just have a sensitivity to one of your hygiene products. I used to be itchier and more uncomfortable when I used tampons and disposable pads. Aside from their chemicals, pads are also not very breathable, which can be problematic. I have a Diva Cup now, which is made of silicone, and I wear comfortable (breathable! non-diapery!) cloth pads to run interference if I get any leaks (which I generally do not).
