Don't douche!: You probably have something other than yeast; or you yeast plus something else. Yeast causes little vaginal discharge, white and thick, not colored. Discharge like yours suggests another infection, like an STD (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas). Vaginal douching always is unhealthy and especially dangerous in presence of STD or other infection (flushes infection into uterus and tubes). ...Read more

I just used Monistat 1, (tioconazole) placed the ovule in about 9am. I went to the bathroom 2 hrs later and some of it came out. Do I need to get another dose?

YES/NO: This is a problem with the Ovules, You may had noticed that it's recommend that you insert it before bed when you're laying down. Even then, it can plop out before completely dissolved if you use the bathroom. It takes 2-3 days for the symptoms to resolve. If you think you can wait, get another if you still have symptoms. I DO recommend inserting it before bed in any case. Best wishes! ...Read more
