Nothing other than the time. I think the 1 and 3 are stronger, but it still takes 7 days to clear up the infection. Answered by Shauna Lafuente 4 months ago.

So basically, before the summer I went on anitbiotics and got a yeast infection. After a while it seemed to go away on its own. But it randomly keeps coming back (i just read that I'm supposed to iron old panties to get rid of the old infections because washing isn't enough apparently). So I was fine until yesterday when it started smelling kinda cottage cheesy down there. There is no itching, swelling, burning. There is just hardly any discharge but when there is, its creamy and thick. It seems to be very mild. My long distance boyfriend is visiting tomorrow. We want to have sex (with a condom). I bought monistat 1 and am horrified about using it. I've heard a lot of things about it making everything worse. Also can I not have sex after using monistat? What if I just use it for a couple of hours? Is there anything I can do. Advice? Answered by Christene Quitedo 4 months ago.
Monistat 1 is an ovule (a little pill basically) that you insert into your vagina. You are not supposed to have sex for at least 24 hours after inserting it or it won't work. The thing with the 1-day treatment is that it is a very concentrated version of the antifungal agent and it often irritates the vaginal tissues because it is so strong. There is also the 3-day Monistat and 7-day Monistat, which are used for 3 and 7 days instead of just the 1 (you insert an ovule each day). And you can't have sex while you are using it. One of the main reasons women use the 1-day version is because they don't want it to interfere with their sex lives. What you can do is just hold off on using the Monistat until after you're done having sex. But I would wait a few days because the vaginal tissues will be kind of raw from all the friction of sex, and if you add the Monistat 1 to that you may have a serious problem with irritation. :( That would not be fun at all.

I've been using the monistat 7 vaginal cream for 6 days now. There are a few questions I have pertaining to the reactions of this drug. WARNING TMI !! but, I was having a thick white discharge that would only build on the inside of my vagina and not come out. It was so thick it would just stay in there.. I've had this problem for 3 years but was always too embarrassed to talk about it so I got into the habit of just cleaning it out in the shower with my finger. I did notice a faint smell not like fish or anything nasty but a slight smell that's very hard to explain, it didn't smell good or bad.There was never any itching or burning or swelling but if a little discharge did make it's way to my panties, (white panties) it would leave a light brown/yellow stain which confuses me because in my vagina it's always white and is very embarrassing to me! It's not wet and slippery like cottage cheese or anything it's more pasty and dries out very quickly when it hits the air sometimes it can be rolled up into little balls. Anyway, I tried just not cleaning it out and seeing if it would come out on it's own and it never did, it would build and then start to smell. I tried eating a lot of yogurt and that didn't help. So despite no itching, irritation, or burning down there, I tried monistat 7 to see if it would clear up.How can you tell if monistat 7 is working? I've noticed a light yellow elastic discharge since beginning use. How long does it take to clear out after last use? Answered by Ching Chapelle 4 months ago.
You didn't need to take Monistat as you do not and did not have a yeast infection. If you had a yeast infection, you would be itching like crazy. The excess medication will take a few days to flush out of your system. All people have their own unique musky scent and yours will smell stronger to you than to others. Alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, illness, medication, hormones, exercise and even diet can effect your scent. Your scent will also get stronger when you are sexually aroused or when you sweat (exercise). The musky scent will be most noticeable in your arm pits and groin area. The fastest way to improve/change your scent is to add 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to an 8 ounce glass of water and drink 2-3 a day for a few days. Changing your diet can also help - drink more water, eat less red meat and more fruits and vegetables. Period blood will also smell stronger. Blood has a metallic (metal-ish) scent. It is normal to have a white and/or clear wet mucus discharge daily, every other day, weekly, on and off throughout the day, on and off throughout your cycle. In my day they just called it discharge, now they call it cervical mucus/leukorrhea. It will accumulate in and around your vagina, in the folds of the labia minora and even above the clitoris. It's part of the female reproductive cycle. The vagina is self-cleaning. This same discharge increases the closer you get to ovulation and when you are sexually aroused. It is what makes sex possible. This normal discharge will also continue after you get your period, after puberty and for the rest of your life. Some girls do produce more discharge than others. You can wear a pantyliner if it bothers you. Do NOT use a tampon for every day discharge. The amount and consistency of your discharge can vary throughout your cycle due to hormones, diet, water intake, exercise, illness and medication, even if you have never experienced it before. Your normal white/clear discharge will turn yellow or dry yellow when exposed to air. If it is coming out yellow, then you probably have a bacterial infection and need to see a doctor. It will also stain your underwear, as it has a bleach-like effect. Different Types of Discharge: White: Thick, white discharge is common at the beginning and end of your cycle. Normal white discharge is not accompanied by itching. If itching is present, thick white discharge can indicate a yeast infection. Clear and stretchy: This is "fertile" mucous and means you are ovulating. Clear and watery: This occurs at different times of your cycle and can be particularly heavy after exercising. Yellow or Green: May indicate an infection, especially if thick or clumpy like cottage cheese or has a foul odor. Spotting Blood/Brown Discharge: May happen right after periods, and is just "cleaning out" your vagina. Old blood looks brown. This may occur when you are ovulating/mid-cycle. It can also happen right before a period. Different types of infections, which a girl can get at any time: Signs of yeast infections: White, cottage cheese-like discharge Swelling and pain around the vulva Intense itching Buy Monistat 7 over-the-counter Or take Difulcan Signs of bacterial vaginosis: A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap Itching or burning Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva See a doctor, as this will not go away on its own Always wipe front to back Don't wear thongs Take lots of probiotics Answered by Annamae Loma 4 months ago.

The diffrence between Monistat 1, 3, and 7?
I just used 1. which one is the best though?
Asked by Troy Luevand 4 months ago.
Monistat 1 is supposed to help the infection within one day. It has tioconazole ointment 6.5% (vaginal antifungal) as the active ingredient. Monistat 3 is supposed to clear the infection with three days. Its active ingredient is miconazole nitrate (4%). Monistat 7 is supposed to take away the infection in seven days. Its active ingredient is micronazale nitrate (2%). I would recommend Monistat 3 or 7, personally. One day doesn't sound like enough. Do whatever works best for you, though. Answered by Karina Tsiatsos 4 months ago.
1 is often not enough medicine to get rid of the infection. 3 is better at getting rid of the infection, and 7 is best, but it's inconvenient. So you weigh your options and pick one. Answered by Traci Lagerstedt 4 months ago.

Is any specific day treatment thats longer or shorter than others better? Answered by Celestina Leibe 4 months ago.
Monistat and Canesten both work but the key is which dosage you select. (the 1 day, 3 day, 5 day, 7 day). When you use ones with shorter durations that means the medicine is at a higher concentration which equals MEGA burning and more discomfort in treatment. Especially if this is your first one I'd advise at a 5 day treatment. When it comes to monistat vs canesten I prefer canestan only because I found that it created less mess since it is a tablet form and not a cream. Answered by Inell Guzzardo 4 months ago.
I had my first yeast infection last year when I was 24. It was horrrrible. I called my Mom, lol, because I didn't know what to do. She took me to CVS and told me to get Monistat. It worked immediately! I will definitely use this product if I ever get another yeast infection. The egg thing that you put inside you instantly soothed the pain and discomfort I had. The cream it came with though was a little too much for me to take. I guess I was too sensitive and "raw" down there to put the itch relief cream on because all it did was hurt and make it feel worse. But within a day I felt much better! I highly recommend it. Answered by Catina Whiley 4 months ago.
there is monistat or canesten you could use i have used both and they both work really well ... it is best to buy the combi pack 3 day treatment it comes with 3 tablets and applicator and a cream for the itching and burning on the out side ....the only thing i don't recommend is the 3 day treatment of cream only to be inserted it is kinda messy but the tablet kind work really well and it is always better to do it before bed and wear a panty liner , i hope this helped , Answered by Antone Kastel 4 months ago.
I had a severe case of yeast infection a few months ago and it was unbearable. I have used monistat and other medications but I am actually averse to such things and only take it if absolutely necessary. I then came across this wonderful book "Yeast Infection No More" by Linda Allen, who was a sufferer herself. After using the treatment mentioned in her book, I was cured completely and it has not recurred. I would advise you to get her book and read it. I have given the link below for you. Hope it helps.

Millions of women all over the world have used Monistat cream over the past several decades. It works quite well to eliminate yeast infections. There are three versions on the market at the moment, for a 1, 3 or 7 day treatment. If you catch an infection right at the start, the one day treatment will often spare you a lot of misery. If it's been a few days, then the 3 day treatment can work, but you need to be prepared for the need to repeat it sometimes. If things have been going on a while, then the full 7 day course is really best. If you tend to be easily irritated, then the one day treatment may also be a bit strong for you. It will help matters a great deal if you also do a few other things while you treat yourself as well. You need to gather up all your undies and put those to wash in bleach and the hottest water they can stand. Then bake them dry in the dryer. That helps eliminate any lurking around later. Do not have sex at all until you are completely cleared up either. The mister will not suffer, but he will harbor the yeasties so you just get them back again when you finish treatment. It's not worth it, so just say no thanks until you are clear. If you chose to use the three day treatment and it doesn't seem to work, go for the full seven day treatment for the next round. If that second round doesn't work, you need to see a gynecologist. When you purchase the Monistat, nearby there will also be a cream for treating the external skin to help with the itch and burn outside. I suggest you get some of that as well. It can take a day or so for the cream to kick in, and in the meantime, you'll find the cream to be very helpful to soothe the tender skin outside. Also, you need to take showers and no baths for the time being. It also helps to go commando unless you simply must have on underwear as well. A bit of airflow helps a lot. I recommend you start with at least the 3 day treatment, and go from there. Answered by Alaine Corless 4 months ago.
