How long should it take for a yeast infection to resolve after taking 150 mg of diflucan (fluconazole)? I've taken it and Monistat 3 and still have a little itching
3-4 days. It is supposed to one-shot the yeast infection. If it doesn't calling your doctor to get another Diflucan (fluconazole) is not a bad idea. Different patients need more or less Diflucan (fluconazole) depending on their physiology, chronicity of the conditions, and how they respond to the medication.
2-3 days. If you truly have a yeast infection, most patients get relief 2-3 days after treatment is completed.
Just last week I used Monistat 3 to cure my yeast infection and it started to feel better really fast but came right back will fluconazole 100mg work?
Maybe. The fact Monistat helped leads to thinking this is a yeast infection. Many yeast infections are resistant to Monistat and may respond better to fluconazole. However, bacterial vaginosis is more common and will not respond to yeast medications in the long run. If recurrent, have your vaginal pH tested and possibly get cultured. Read more...
What else can I do for a yeast infection? I've done Monistat cloitrimazole diflucan (fluconazole) and probiotics and only 75% better
Depends. Chronic yeast can indicate higher sugar levels, resistant yeast or too much acidity from diet, stress, medications Consider getting your sugar levels checks, a culture of the yeast to confirm how to treat it, manage stress, continuing or changing the probiotics to something stronger, eating a more alkaline diet and using pH drops to improve acid/base balance.

My boyfriend used Monistat n I used diflucan (fluconazole). He's uncircumcised. Do you know how I contracted another yeast infection?
Recurrent yeast. Vaginal yeasts are rarely acquired from other persons. Yeasts are normal in our intestines and often in the vagina. New yeast symptoms are not from a new infection, but because your own natural yeast has grown to increased numbers and/or the body is having an allergy-like reaction to it. If symptoms recur frequently, talk with your doc about preventing them with a diflucan (fluconazole) dose once a week. Read more...
