It takes a few days: If it has only been 1-2 days, give it more time; the drug should kick in soon. However, 10-15% of vaginal yeast infections are caused by yeasts commonly resistant to miconazole (Monistat®) and other "azole" drugs; if no better in a few days, alternate treatment may be necessary. Also, if risk for STD, make sure your doc has considered herpes, which sometimes can mimic severe yeast infection.

Used a condom last night during sex now my vagina irritated no burning no itching just feels weird what's wrong? Is this std or allergic to condom?

Possible allergy: Some women are in fact allergic to latex condoms or gloves for that matter. Next sexual encounter try a latex free condom and see if it makes a difference.

Yeast infection?: The most likely cause of such symptoms is a yeast infection, usually a yeast named Candida. Most women have vaginal yeast infections at one time or another. If you have been on an antibiotic recently, that could trigger it. Genital herpes can cause such symptoms, but only if you're sexually active. Effective treatment is available. See your doctor ASAP; if recent antibiotic, all the prescriber.

Hard to say: The yeast infection may have caused some itching/burning, irritation of the vagina. Without an exam it is impossible to say for sure, but a vaginal/vulvar rash is ery common with yeast infections.

See your DR: Best to see GYN. No diagnosis possible from this vague description. Must have exam. Meanwhile be sure to use plenty of lubrication if you engage in any kind of sex.

Here are some. ..: It's a good idea to seek pro-evaluation to ensure no UTI or vaginitis - bacterial, fungal, or even STD. But, bring the info on the onset, degree, duration, interval, evolution, & progress of chief complaints & their related symptoms over time to Doc for analysis + more detailed Hx + physical examination + tests as needed so to deduce what problem you have and advise what care you need.

Vaginitis: Vaginitis could be caused due to changes in normal bacteria (bacterial vaginosis), yeast infections, or trichomoniasis. Only the later is sexually transmitted. Clinical findings may suggest a particular diagnosis. A pelvic exam and some testing would be needed for further evaluation. Empiric therapy should be avoided because of frequent misdiagnosis and inappropriate therapy.

Vaginitis: There are too many possibilities to judge the cause, maybe more than one. Strong odor suggests certain kinds of infection (bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas, forgotten tampon, others) but "major discomfort", swelling, burning, etc go along better with other problems (yeast, herpes, allergic reaction, others). Don't guess at OTC treatment; if wrong, could make things worse. See a doctor ASAP.

My vagina itches and burns around the vaginal hole, and it started 4 days ago after I had sex. How do I make it stop burning/itching?

Treat the problem: Before you jump on to treating what's unknown, you may seek answers to what it is. You may have a urinary tract infection or a vaginal infection or irritation but without help of a medical professional, you and we are at the mercy of guess.
