Performing oral sex on your partner is no problem at all, but probably best that you avoid receiving oral as well as vaginal. ...Read more

Went to gyn dr diagnosis w/ bv. Prescribed Flagyl 500mg for 7days. Had sex 3days later. Itching burning. Taking Monistat 7 not working at will. Why?

I have been using the generic brand of the Monistat 7 and have not felt any relief and it is going to be day 5 I'm using tonight what should I do?
Wrong diagnosis?: Monistat only works for yeast infection and so if you have bacterial vainitis (bv) or something else such as an std (trichomonas, chlamydia etc.), Monistat will not work. There should not be much of a difference between brand vs generic besides the preservatives-active ingredient =same. So, I would suggesting seeing doc for eval/treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
