Yeast infection is better and I used Monistat 7 with the applicator. On the 7th day, I misplaced the applicator. I used my finger instead. Will it work?

Yeast infection: As long as you washed your hands well first, after 6 days with applicators and relieved symptoms, probably nothing to worry about. Worst case scenario would be having to retreat the infection, which sometimes needs to be done after the next menstrual period anyway in many women. You can use OTC medications if your symptoms return. ...Read more

Fluconazole cured my first yeast infection. Then I got another one or it came back after my boyfriend fingered me. Why? We use condoms during sex.

Fluconazole cured my first yeast infection. Then I got another one or it came back after my boyfriend fingered me. Why? We use condoms during sex.

Vaginal flora: The ph (acidity/alkalinity scale) is kept constant by "good bacteria" (doderlein's bacilli) at between 4.5 to 5.5. Mechanical manipulation/sex can change the ph as well as harsh soaps, douches & sex toys. Unclean hands can also contrubute. Local vaginal yeast rx's are more effective than systemic oral meds like Fluconazole that go all over the body before it makes it to the vagina. ...Read more

My doctor told me that I have yeast infection and yeast discharge is very sticky so she asked me to take them out of my vagina by my fingers, is it ok?

My doctor told me that I have yeast infection and yeast discharge is very sticky so she asked me to take them out of my vagina by my fingers, is it ok?

Its okay: Make sure your hands are clean & don't try to remove it all. If you are just trying to get a sample to confirm what it looks like you won't harm anything. Best thing is to have your doctor take a look unless you have had this before. Then in that case you can treat with same medication previusly prescribed. If that doesn't work then definitely go to doctor who can also rule out other issues. ...Read more

During sex milky white thin discharge, my bf fingered me and it was thick and clumpy on his finger. Is this a yeast infection or is it normal?

During sex milky white thin discharge, my bf fingered me and it was thick and clumpy on his finger. Is this a yeast infection or is it normal?

Too little info: You can best tell whether your discharge is normal for you. The amount and appearance of discharge vary widely with the menstural cycle and from woman to woman. Probably not abnormal if amount not unusal; no strong odor; if not colored (yellow, creamy, green etc) and doesn't stain underwear; and if no itching/irritation. If any of these, or in doubt, see your doctor. Better safe than sorry! ...Read more
