I used Monistat 3 for a yeast infection, I've finished the three days of medicine, now I have some yellow discharge, wondering what that could mean/if that's common?
Infection? STD?: Sounds like you didn't have a yeast infection, or yeast plus something else. Vaginal yeast infections usually cause scant white discharge, or none at all; the main symptom is itching and irritation, not discharge. Colored discharge usually indicates other kinds of infections, especially STDs. Assuming you are sexually active and possibly at risk see a doctor soon for exam and testing. Good luck! ...Read more

I used Monistat 3 day treatment first time no doc vis. Second day so far. I've been experiencing a slight pinkish discharge that is dry clumpy pasty.
Not yeast? STD?: Miconazole (Monistat®) treats yeast infection and nothing else. If you have itching or irritation in addition to discharge, yeast is possible. However, slightly bloody ("pinkish") dishcarge is unusual with yeast. If the discharge isn't better by tomorrow, stop the Monistat and see a doctor to be checked for other causes, such as STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, or trichomonas. Good luck! ...Read more

Vaginitis/symptoms: There are many types of fungi ("yeast") which along with bacterial and viral infections could produce the listed symptoms. If Monistat 3 is effective for this particular infection, symptoms should ease in a few days. If not, you should see a gyn provider to be certain of the cause via a culture and exam, with treatment for other types of agents possible. ...Read more

It depends: Your physician would have difficulty diagnosing an infection if you have medication in your vagina. Unless you have other concerns to bring to your doctor's attention, you might want to just complete the treatment you have started and see if it is effective. If you still have symptoms, then you should be evaluated for yeast or another type of infection. ...Read more
I have been bleeding thin layers of watery blood since day 1 of Monistat 3. My period isn't due for another 2 weeks. Is this normal?
Is it safe to use consecutive doses of Monistat 3? Yeast infection symptoms cleared up after 3 day course but external irritation remains.
Safe but: It is safe to extend the use. When people do not get better using over the counter yeast medications I like to see them in the office to confirm that they actually have yeast and not something else. If you do not get better with the 2nd treatment schedule a visit. Prevaleaf Soothe is a nice over the counter supplement to yeast medications for vaginal irritation as well. ...Read more

Maybe not yeast: Did you self diagnose your yeast infection? Yeast doesn't normally cause colored (yellow) discharge. Colored discharge usually is due to other infections, including STDs if at risk. However, if you also have itching and irritation, yeast is still a good bet. If in doubt, see doctor, and for sure if symptoms don't clear up entirely after a few days of Monistat. ...Read more

Vaginal itching: It's not uncommon to develop a yeast infection after taking metronidazole. Yeast infection can resolve in its own and so if the itching is not so bad you can wait a few days. You can consider something over the counter but do call your doctor for his or her suggestion of what you can do. ...Read more
