I have a yeast infection and I got home from gym, and did yard work and went to the bathroom and I had blood in my discharge. What should I do?

Re-check with doctor: Yeast infections don't bleed, or only very rarely -- and only if the yeast is especially severe, with open sores. So the blood probably is unrelated to your yeast infection, assuming the yeast diagnosis is correct. You might recheck with your doctor whether s/he is confident about the yeast diagnosis, and also ask if you were tested for STD. Gonorrhea and chlamydia can cause vaginal bleeding. ...Read more

Had symptoms of yeast infection, so I used monistat1 yesterday. Burning/itching increased, discharge has blood in it, but not on period. Normal?

Could be: Most creams, over the counter as well as prescription ones, often contain alcohol to keep them soft and easily applied. When you have an infection, the vaginal tissue can be quite inflamed and irritated and this can be aggravated by the application of a cream. Spotting can occur as well. If the symptoms do not resolve in the next couple days, see your doctor. ...Read more

I took Monistat 1 (tioconazole) yesterday to treat a yeast infection. I had pink discharge yesterday and today I am spotting blood is this normal?

Other problem? STD?: Vaginal yeast usually doesn't bleed or cause pink discharge, both of which suggest the diagnosis is wrong, or that you also have something else. At your age, the main causes of vaginal bleeding and discharge are STDs, especially gonorrhea or chlamydia. There are several other possibilities too, and all new or abnormal, vaginal discharge or bleeding needs professional exam. See your doctor ASAP. ...Read more
