I had a yeast infection took medication and cream! My symptoms stopped 4days ago and I'm starting to feel them again? Is this normal?
Resistant yeast: Sometimes yeast infections can recur-- especially if the conditions that allowed it to form in the first place are still there (uncontrolled diabetes, antibiotic use, vaginal factors etc). That said, yeast can also be resistant to anti fungal treatment. This means you may need a higher dose of the original therapy or a different med that would bypass the resistance. Sounds like you may need an MD. ...Read more

Dr gave me duflican for yeast infection took duflican 4 days ago, still have some discharge and a slight fishy odor is Odor normal? It's not to strong
BV? Trichomonas?: The main vaginal yeast symptoms are irritation and itching, scant discharge, without odor. Fishy odor suggests bacterial vaginosis or trichomonas. Maybe it wasn't yeast, or you had yeast plus BV or trich. It can be difficult to diagnose vaginal infections, so probably not your doc's fault. Return to be rechecked; request the newer, more accurate DNA test for trich if not yet done. Also STD tests. ...Read more
Took cephlaxin for 10 days. Developed yeast infection. Took 150 mg fluconazole still having symptoms. Should I take another pill or wait?
Resistant yeast: Up to 10% of vaginal yeast infections are caused by Candida glabrata, rather than the usual C. albicans, and some glabrata strains are resistant to all the "azole" drugs. You might try fluconazole once again, but if also ineffective, speak with your doctor about a prescription for alternate treatment, e.g. caspofungin, flucyctosine, or nystatin. Good luck! ...Read more
I self diagnosed myself with a yeast infection. Took monistat 1- it burned really bad and tried to scrape some out but only small amount came out. Do I need to redo monistat or get pills?
Yeast? Allergy?: Monistat and similar treatments usually are very effective against vaginal yeast infections, and it probably will work. However, it is possible to be allergic to monistat, perhaps explaining the pain with application. See a doctor for professional diagnosis and recommended treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

I was diagnosed with a yeast infection took meds but around my vagina is inflamed & blistering what to do?
My boyfriend has a rash on his penis. I had a yeast infection & took fluconizol. I gave him one & him went away. But now it's back.?
Not so simple: Vaginal yeast is not an "infection". It is a proliferation of yeast which is already present in small numbers. The yeast proliferates because of sugars in the environment or because there is a loss of normal bacteria. The most common cause is exposure to antibiotics which kill the bacteria normally competing with yeasts. There are a variety of rashes on the penis. Is he circumcised? Frequently th ...Read more

Last week Wednesday Doctor told me I have a yeast infection, took pill, end of week had intercourse, today have symptoms again. Why did it recur?
You both may need to: Be treated in order to get rid of the infection. Use barrier condom method is best. You will need treatment. Change diet to candida free diet, eliminate sugars, alcohol, processed, fried, GMO foods, and stick to whole foods, organic, lots of water, and take your probiotics. You may be getting reinfected or reinoculated. Pills alone won't halt it. Change your microbiome and your diet to help out. ...Read more
I had yeast infection. Took monistat. It went away but my perineum is stil itchy and blistered is this normal? My anus is a little itchy too. What to do?
Allergy? Herpes?: A blstering rash in this part of the body always raises the possibility of genital herpes, and herpes sometimes is initially misdiagnosed as yeast. Or it's just severe yeast that needs more or different treatment. Or maybe you an allergic reaction to the monistat cream. Don't take chances: see your doctor for professional evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more
1st time to get what I believe is yeast infection. Took a pessary, swelling gone. Itchy, stinging, bumps are not even with the use of of the cream.?
May not be yeast:
I don't know what "taking a pessary" means---that's a device to "prop up" a sagging uterus.
Yeast infections are itchy, but usually don't have bumps or stinging and you usually have a cheesy discharge. This sounds more like herpes virus to me. You should be examined and could be placed on some prophylactic medication. Good luck! ...Read more

Diflucan/Pregnancy: Studies show that diflucan has been shown to cause a higher rate of miscarriage at 7-22 weeks: - JAMA. 2016;315 (1):58-67. Studies also show that mothers exposed to higher doses of fluconazole showed a higher risk of congenital abnormalities such as cleft lip, palate. ACOG and the FDA recognized a study in 2016 that showed a higher risk of miscarriage. I would personally recommend a serum HCG asap ...Read more

Talk to them: If u had a benign BV sometimes the anti- yeast meds can clear it up even though that is not what the anti yeast med is for, but usually with a BV u will have symptoms like a vaginal discharge that smells so if u have no sxs u may be fine (unlike an std where it can be + and u have to be treated even if u have no symptoms)bv is not an std but u need to ask if u were tested for stds. ...Read more

Had a yeast infection took FLUCONAZOLE 150 mg 2 pack pill. I started having brown discharge then early period and painful pelvic and back pain why?
Pink discharge after missing a birth control pill and what I think is a yeast infection. Took Monistat 1 (tioconazole) 30 hrs ago and itching is better but not gone?
Be patient, takes 3d:
First, please remember to take the missed pill ASAP.
While Monistat 1 (tioconazole) is a 1 dose treatment, it really takes 3 days to work. I generally like the longer treatment which includes the cream that can be applied externally.
The other possibility, is that you don't have what you thought.
I feel it acceptable to treat when you KNOW, but if you THINK, see your doctor. Good luck ...Read more
I am 20 years old my last period took 4 pregnanc test said negative I been cramping all month did had a yeast infection took Azo the yeast infection is gone how can get my period? I am not on birth control but I did take the morning after pill after ha
The Plan B likely interfered with your body's normal hormonal balance. It may take up to three months after taking it to get a period. However a blood pregnancy test is not a bad idea at this point. Otherwise, if your period does not come in the next month see your doctor. He/she can prescribe a pill that can induce a period, and then a birth control pill can be started to stabilize your period and prevent pregnancy.
Take care. ...Read more
Have a bad yeast infection. Took 150mg diflucan 3 days ago, but started period 2 days ago and yeast infection is worse now. OK to take diflucan again?
Resistant yeast?: It's OK to take it again, but it probably won't work. A few percent of yeasts causing vaginal infections are resistant to fluconazole (Diflucan) and other "azole" drugs. Or maybe it's something other than yeast. See your doctor to reconfirm the diagnosis and perhaps consider alternate therapy, e.g. flucytosine, caspofungin, or nystatin. ...Read more

Been spotting 6 day, have done 3 preg. Test all neg. An on bc for 1yr. Took planb in 1/27.Have bad yeast infection, took diflucan (fluconazole) 4 days. What's wrong?
Outside of vagina itches. Bearable. Regular discharge. No oder. No inside itch. Std? Or a yeast infection? Took a Plan B generic form 5weeks ago.
Be examined: Based on your description it may be something your perineum, or bottom area is coming in contact with. Be checked to make sure it is not something else. I don't believe it is related to Plan B. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) if no allergies and cold packs may be helpful. Bathing in Aveeno may also help. ...Read more
Self diagnosed vaginal yeast infection. Took fluconazole & dexchlorpheniramine maleate yesterday. Increased white lumpy discharge. Is this normal?
Vaginal discharge: Studies show in the evaluation of a woman with vaginal discharge a pregnancy test and urinalysis are useful. If you have external itching with the discharge then it probably is a yeast infection. Does the discharge have odor? Lots of women have a mixed infection with BV urine STI panel may be helpful. One solution is to use vaginal suppositories such as terconazole for 3 nights see MD ...Read more

You need to get back to your PCP or OB/GYN for an additional exam and testing. Hope this helps and you feel better fast. ...Read more
