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

Accidentally used monistat 3 during the day around noon. Can I wait until the next night to take the second ovule?
See a GYN MD: This may or may not be an exclusive yeast infection and may be complicated by other factors. See a GYN MD and get this sorted out correctly by examination and testing. P.S.

Newton's law.: What goes up must come down. If you are standing, the any cream you insert in your vagina will flow back down due to gravity. If you don't want that, stand on your head! LOL. This is normal. When you lie down it stays in longer. Wear a pad/panty liner (not generic) ...Read more
