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?

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?

No worries: Missing one day of treatment for a vaginal yeast infection shouldn't make any difference. Neither will having sex. Yeast infections usually don't come from sex partners. Go ahead and use the last dose. ...Read more

I used monistat 1 on monday and I am having a little bleeding with what looks like the rest of the cream. How long the cream takes to go away?

I used monistat 1 on monday and I am having a little bleeding with what looks like the rest of the cream. How long the cream takes to go away?

A Rx "washout": If you are bleeding post Monistat Rx and the cream is being "washed out" then the infection may not be cleared as the medication has not had enough time to work. Either wait for the bleeding to stop to see if the itching continues and repeat the Monistat or see a MD for evaluation. ...Read more

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

I used monistat 1 ovule. Now have a redish pink tissue like discharge with the cream. Wondering if I can I use a duesche to clear the discharge faster?

I used monistat 1 ovule. Now have a redish pink tissue like discharge with the cream. Wondering if I can I use a duesche to clear the discharge faster?

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 didn't take monistat 1 (tioconazole) before I went to sleep, and when I went to the bathroom I say the cream was all over my vag. Did it all leak out? What to do?

Leakage: It is not unusual for some leakage of vaginal creams or suppositories to occur. There will probably be some effectiveness of the monostat in treating your vaginitis. ...Read more

Severe yeast infection. Is being treated with antibiotics, cream, monistat. Drinking lots of water. Urine is foggy but mostly clear. Why the fog?

Severe yeast infection. Is being treated with antibiotics, cream, monistat. Drinking lots of water. Urine is foggy but mostly clear. Why the fog?

From the cream: By definition your urine cannot be foggy and clear at the same time. If you have no other bladder symptoms such as urgency and frequency, then most likely your urine is mixing with some of the vaginal cream as it comes out. If there is any confusion, it is easy enough to check a urinalysis and urine culture also. For more info www. Askyourgynecologist. Org. ...Read more

I am currently taking metronidazole and got a yeast infection I was told to take Monistat cream but I got an ovule instead is that okay?

Monistat ovule: Should work equally as well as cream; just follow directions for use carefully. Try eating yogurt with active cultures to help restore lactobacilli in vagina (which help keep yeast under control). If topical antifungal doesn't work, ask pcp for oral antifungal like diflucan (fluconazole). ...Read more

I'm taking the monistat cream treatment and it is for 7 days but I'm getting my period in 5 days can I continue the treatment even while on my period?

I'm taking the monistat cream treatment and it is for 7 days but I'm getting my period in 5 days can I continue the treatment even while on my period?

Yes, no problem: You should finish the full 7 days of treatment. This won't cause any problem. If you use tampons, remove the old tampon, insert the cream, then a fresh tampon. For future yeast infections, consider fluconazole (Diflucan®) instead of Monistat or other creams. It's a single pill by mouth and you're done -- just as effective as 7 days of vaginal cream. ...Read more

I've been using terconazole 4% cream for 2 days. It's not working. Can I switch to Monistat 3 mid treatment?

Sure: But give the terconazole a little longer. U may still have some sx's for a day or 2 even after infection done. If not better in a few days and did not see a doc there is a chance it's not a yeast infection. It likely is though and u can certainly switch to monistat. Good luck. ...Read more

I have been taking fluconazole for 3 days for a yeast infection and I still have itching do I need to refill my script again and buy some Monistat cream?

No: You should visit your doctor and look for other causes of infection. Generally a single dose of this drug will treat yeast. Only those with recurrent infections or immunologically compromised would need more treatment. ...Read more

Get yeast infections with my periods. TTC after this cycle-ok to use monistat cream before ttc? Nees toWait a certain number of days after using to ttc?

It is safe: To use OTC anti- fungal creams, such as Monistat/miconazole, when trying to conceive. Completing treatment before your ovulatory days would be optimal. I don't think we know a precise number of days that the presence of miconazole would cause absolutely no effect, but you should be good if you finish a couple days before ovulating. All the best! ...Read more

If you're told to get Monistat- is it the cream or the applicators? And if applicators then 1 or 3 or 7? Will 1 being stronger work faster?

Depends: The applicator is for vaginal insert, so get it if you have vaginal itch or discharge. If the infection is only on the outside, then the cream will be sufficient. I personally get the 7 days, even though you may only need one dose. You will have left over for the next time. ...Read more
