Stop it!: If you get worse when taking a medicine, you may have a problem with the medicine as well as the disease. Stop it for now and talk to or see your doc to see if you should continue it or use something else. If you take diphenhydramine and it stops the itching, there's a good chance that you are allergic to the medicine. ...Read more

My wife used monistat last week and now since this morning she's been bleeding. Not sure if this is related?

My wife used monistat last week and now since this morning she's been bleeding. Not sure if this is related?

Probably unrelated: Vaginal yeast infections (the only condition treated by Monistat) don't bleed, and there's no reason to suspect Monistat ever causes vaginal bleeding. In other words, her bleeding probably has nothing to do with a yeast infection. Is she sure about the yeast diagnosis? Yeast can be confused with other infections that might bleed. Best for her to check with her doctor. ...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?

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

I am bleeding with painful cramps after taking Monistat 1. Will this go away on it's own? I don't have medical insurance.

I am bleeding with painful cramps after taking Monistat 1. Will this go away on it's own? I don't have medical insurance.

Yeast infections: Bleeding with painful cramps is not a result of Monistat I. If you have any concern about being pregnant, get an HCG serum test to be certain. Pain on one side is possibly an ovarian cyst or an abscess. See your gyn for an exam. Yeast infections are mild, and do not generally cause either cramps or bleeding, but a pregnancy in your tubes can, and that is a gyn emergency. ...Read more

See your OBGYN: Bleeding and pain with urination even after treatment for yeast might mean that you have a urinary tract infection or some other genital infection that warrants treatment by an OB/GYN as soon as possible. Infections in pregnancy can be worse than your average and may put your pregnancy at risk so try to get seen as soon as you can. ...Read more

Took Monistat 7 - have heavy bleeding after one dose - I have had a yeast infection for awhile I believe. When the cream came out - so did blood.

Took Monistat 7 - have heavy bleeding after one dose - I have had a yeast infection for awhile I believe. When the cream came out - so did blood.

Something else: Heavy bleeding is not usually associated with a yeast infection or monistat. It is possible you tore your vagina with the applicator. That would have caused pain in addition to bleeding. Since this is not a typical yeast infection, you should not try treating it yourself any more. See your doctor or an urgent care clinic today. ...Read more

Pelvic infection: This sounds like a lot more (and more serious) thatn a yeast infection. STDs like chlamydia and gonorrhea are a lot more common in women with BV, so you should have been tested. Maybe pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)? All unexplained vaginal bleeding or low abdominal pain requires prompt professional evaluation, and you have both. Get back in touch with your doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more

I've been on the POP for 4 packs and have had good luck as far as side effects and bleeding. Would I likely have a similar experience with Nexplanon?

I've been on the POP for 4 packs and have had good luck as far as side effects and bleeding. Would I likely have a similar experience with Nexplanon?

Maybe: The most common side-effect of Nexplanon is irregularly irregular periods which can remain so for the entire 3 years. There is no way to say whether or not your experience with progestin only oral contraceptives would predict your likelihood of having the same experience with Nexplanon. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can I take microlite pill while on implanon to stop bleeding and is there side effects? I am worried I will have bad side effects as I am goin on hols

Yes: You can take a combined estrogen/levonogesterol pill when on implanon, in fact, doctors may recommend this to help with some of the breakthrough bleeding that can occur while on implanon. At your age, the only possible side effect would be an increased risk of blood clot, but only likely if md said you were at increased risk for blood clot, or had previous liver tumor. Otherwise, you're fine! ...Read more
