You should not: Use dish soap for baths, only mild soaps with moisturizers like Dove or Aveeno. This is especially true for the mucosal surfaces of your body, since they can get "allergic" or inflamed from drying agents like dish soap. If you are concerned about infections in the nether regions, keep an extra healthy lifestyle and only use mild cleansers in order not to change your vaginal pH too much. ...Read more

I've been taking the 7 day monistat cream and I skipped last night and I had sex last night, what is going to happen now? & should I still continue to take it?

Taking BV cream right now, going to take Monistat cream when I'm done. How long should I wait after to start the vaginal Monistat cream? A week?

Taking BV cream right now, going to take Monistat cream when I'm done. How long should I wait after to start the vaginal Monistat cream? A week?

Don't have to: You don't necessarily have to wait. If you have a yeast infection there is no reason to have to wait. As a matter of fact, since yeast is usually much more symptomatic, I usually have my patients treat it first and then use the vaginal medicine for BV as soon as they finish the yeast meds. Hope this helps. ...Read more
