Yes: OTC meds for yeast are very safe and there is no harm in trying another course of Monistat or trying a different OTC med. There are also many home remedies that may help: http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/yeast_infection.html

Use Monistat 7 for all 7 days and if that doesn't work please bring this up with your Gynecologist who knows your medical history. If you don't have confidence in your Doctor see another for a second opinion.
