Microgynon as such does not cause itching of the clitoris as a side effect. It may cause vaginal discharge at times.

The cause for your clitoral itching seems not to be related to the drug. It may a superficial fungal infection. You may consider using topical Monistat cream for some time. It is available over the counter.

Maintain good personal hygiene.

There is no need to change the brand of OCP as such.

Hope this helps you.

Get well soon.
