Is it safe to use Monistat 1 (tioconazole) if I'm not sure if I have a yeast infection? I'm not able to make a doctor's appointment anytime soon.
It's safe, but...: If your symptoms suggest yeast (vaginal itching, etc; usually not much discharge, no odor), then OK to try Monistat or similar products. You'll definitely need to get care if it doesn't work. Yeast symptoms and vaginal discharge often are due to STDs and other potentially serious problems, so don't take chances. If at all uncertain, find a way to get care soon: health dept? Planned Parenthood? ...Read more

Gyne-lotrimin and vagistat (tioconazole) are also available and are safe as well. If these don't work (you may not have yeast), or if the infection returns soon after treatment see your doctor for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

If u are unsure if u have candida or reg yeast, should u go on candida diet to be safe if taking Monistat n cannot see doc due to no healthcare? Plz!
Candida: Candida is a form of yeast and Monistat should help. If it does not, then other candida species that do not respond to Monistat may be involved. At this point, you may want to get a doctor involved. I would think that your local health department should be able to direct you in getting health insurance coverage. ...Read more

Probably no harm with earlier sex, but physical stimulation might make symptoms worse and make it difficult to know for sure whether the treatment is working.

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
Hi two nights ago I took monistat 1 for a yeast infection and it is still very much so irritated. Would it be safe if I also took diflucan?
1, Be certain this IS a yeast infection. Bacterial vaginosis & some STD's can imitate yeast & fool you. Looking at discharge under microscope by provider helps OR doing DNA tests (sometimes called Affirm)
2. IF yeast infection, Monistat plus Diflucan is safe. Assuming here Diflucan dose approved by provider-dose is adjusted in kidney disease, avoid if liver problems, heart rhythm disorder ...Read more
