Took a 1-dose fluconazole 2 days ago, there is no more itching but there are still signs of vaginal discharge. Should I go back to the dr.? Is it cured?

Give it a week: It take several days for symptoms of yeast to clear up entirely. Give it a few more days, then recheck with your doctor if you still have discharge or symptoms. Or if in doubt, get the discharge checked anyway. Discharge isn't usually the main yeast symptom, and you may need to be checked for STDs (depending on risks) and other causes. ...Read more

Discharge after taking fluconazole?

Other vaginitis: Fluconazole is an antifungal medication and thus only treats yeast/fungal infections.
