See a Provider: You need to be checked . Not every yeast infection responds to Monistat and all discharge that does not itch is yeast. See your provider and check it out!

Wrong diagnosis: Vaginal discharge can come from several different sources. Yeast infection is only one possibility. You may need to see your provider for evaluation.
