i used monistat 3 last night and after it made the itching waaaay worse but i used the cream and it helped. is that normal? and how long does it usually take to start working?
Asked by Cherly Slaymaker 4 months ago.
Monistat 3 is for 3 days worth of medication right? So that means it will usually take 3 days for it to start working and too feel maximum relief. The medication is pretty much a chemical burn from the inside out. The medication is killing yeast and along the way will also kill a few health cells so it will make ithcing and burning worse for a while but it will subside. Just stick with it and take all 3 days.

monistat 7 takes seven days to sparkling u all up 3 takes 3 days and is derived with a cream for the exterior to take the itchy away, monistat 3 no cream comes with it yet iis the comparable as above and monistat a million works in one day Answered by Enda Arcega 4 months ago.
Are you sure it's a yeast infection? There are many things that can cause irritation "down there." If there's a white, cottage-cheese-like discharge, it's typically a yeast infection. If there's no discharge and just irritation, it could be anything from an estrogen deficiency (typically due to most birth control methods) or it could be something like folliculitis, which is usually caused by shaving. If the irritation persists, see a physician. Answered by Hildred Coccia 4 months ago.

Hi, If Monistat is not working you may have another problem. You should have the doctor take a quick look. When I was a teenager (almost 20), and as embarrasing as it is to tell, I once had itching and burning. I thought it might be a bladder infection or yeast infection. It turned out to be crabs. YUCK. My now ex-husband, had gone out on a bender when he was sailing, and picked up the little critters when he was being unfaithful. Have you tried to use the cream that comes with Monistat? If that does not calm the burning down, you definately should see a doc. Lastly, does it hurt when you pee? Not hurting from the pee touching your skin, but pain while you pee. You can test this by putting your hand just under the area where the pee comes out, then the pee won't touch your skin. if it hurts while peeing, you need antibiotics.

If you have not seen any symptomatic relief at all you need to consult your family md or Gyn as it may require a prescription med to total eradicate your symptoms. Answered by Taisha Mccargar 4 months ago.
it may not be a yeast infection. You should see your doctor to confirm. If it is he will get you a stronger thing to use. Answered by Valorie Hakala 4 months ago.

I read the instructions and understand how to insert the cream into the vagina before I go to bed, yadayadayada, and I should have no problem with that. But this is my first time using it, and I just wanted to know like... will the cream fall out in the morning when I wake up, or will it stay in there,.. or will it dissolve in there overnight (haha, I'm pretty sure that's not even possible), etc? :P Please help :] Answered by Regan Davich 4 months ago.
I totally understand, I just used it for the first time about 2 weeks ago. The insert goes in and will come out as you sleep (so WEAR A PAD!) and throughout the day it might continue to come out a little more. Just wearing a panty liner will be fine. I never used the cream so don't worry about it unless you're itchy. It just goes on the itchy spots on the outside area. Oh, and after the 3 days it won't be all better. It takes a few more days, so worry, I thought it was be over in 3 days and was a little nervous when it wasn't. It gets better and better each day though. Answered by Kizzy Farinella 4 months ago.

NO they are not being overly dramatic. i got my first yeast infection last september after i had my tonsils out (due to the heavy duty antibiotics). my mom called my gyn (i was in A LOT of pain and didn't want to try to talk much) and they said they would not give me the one time pill unless i tried monistat 3 first. so my mom got it and OH MY FREAKIN GOD. i put it in and with in a few seconds there was an intense burning sensation. i went and asked my sister if it was normal and she said a little bit is normal but this was sooooooooooooooo painful i was histerically crying. it was killing me more than my throat!!!! my mom was out to dinner and i called her and she told me to get in the bathtub and try to get as much out as i could. i was sticking a wash cloth up there to try to get it out. i was soooooooo red and raw from that stuff that i put ice in a baggie on my crotch for a while. it it meant to stay in there for quite some time so there was obviously more in there and it took 2 days for it to ALL come out. i was in terrible pain. my mom called my gyn the next day and told them they dang well better give me the one time pill and they did. they said "oh some girls can be a little sensitive and overly dramatic about the whole thing" and my mom said "would you like to see her crotch i'm a nurse and this is no overdramatization". if i were you i would call your gyn and tell them that you've had your yeast infection for a good 5 days and that you already tried the monistat kit and it did not get rid of the yeast infection so you want the one time pill. i'm just trying to save you from a world of pain. Answered by Blanch Stancey 4 months ago.
The yeast infection went away but it was back with a vengeance. I again 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 use 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.

My vagina is a lot more itchy and burning after using Monistat 3?
I thought it was itching before, but oh my god, when I used the Monistat 3 cream, I cried. I never itched...so much..in my entire life, it itches so bad I can't sleep. Is this normal?? Is this how the medicine is working or am I having allergic reaction or something? Anyone had it happen?
Asked by Vilma Polite 4 months ago.
Oh, wow, we've all been there itching like crazy in the middle of the night wondering what to do. I've had really bad reactions to Monistat 3, also. It's hard to tell if it's an allergic reaction or if it's just what the product feels like on already-irritated skin. The safest thing is to call a doctor and try to get a prescription for something else, or call the Monistat telphone line that is staffed with nurses, and see what they say. I'm not a doctor, but I can give you advice from experience. When I had that problem, I've dealt with it 3 ways: 1) quit and get a prescription from the doctor for something else, either another cream or oral medication, 2) take an Advil and try to deal with the itching knowing that days 2 and 3 could be better, and 3) quit and wipe it off as much as I can so I can sleep, taking my chances that everything that's supposed to be dead got killed already. There are obviously pros and cons to all 3 options. Monstat is strong medicine, and might not be all that healthy for you, even though it's the easiest and cheapest strategy and most of us have used it. #3 could work, or it could cause the yeast to grow back stronger. The prescription that your doctor would give you would be for stronger cream/foam, which worked great for me but is maybe not the healthiest thing for you, or for the Diflucan pill, which also works great but again is not exactly the healthiest medication. (I've turned into a health nut in the past few years.) What I think I'll do next time is find something in a natural foods/medicine store, like Whole Foods, GNC, or somewhere like that, because at least it'll be healthier to use. There's also the plain yogurt strategy, but I don't know if it works. One word of advice: yeast LOVE sugar, so please cut sugar out of your diet as much as possible until you get this out of control. Good luck! Answered by Vita Dellapenna 4 months ago.

Asked by Kandice Askia 4 months ago.
If it's a 3-day dose, use all 3 doses. The first day clears it up or the most part, so that's why you seemed better. You may as well use it all or it won't be cured, and your remaining 2 doses wouldn't do it either. Answered by Theo Deuel 4 months ago.
If you use Monistat you must use it at night just before bed. The 7 day kit is more effective than the others. You must use each and every tube, ovule or application in the kit without skipping nights. Counting from the first application: do not use a douche, use tampons, get fingered, use a vibrator or have penetrative sex for 8 days. If you do have penetrative sex while suffering from a yeast infection you will tranmit the infection to your partner. Answered by Chance Nitterhouse 4 months ago.

36.5 weeks pregnant and monistat 3?
Hi ladies, I wanted to ask you all if you think it would be ok to use monistat 3 if you have already lost some of your mucus plug? I am dying over here from external hemorrhoids and a itchy ( woman part)! Anything you guys could tell me to help me out would be appreciated. Thanks!
Asked by Bess Larez 4 months ago.
Monistat is an antifungal, not an antibiotic (antibiotic use often necessitates the need for Monistat). It is safe to use, especially this late in pregnancy. Get the yeast infection cleared up ASAP and use witch hazel pads (Tucks) for the hemorroids. Answered by Darla Chanthaumlsa 4 months ago.
Best at this point to ask your Dr. or call the pharmacy. Monistat has an antibotic property that I wouldn't use. Use your cream on your roids, and vagisil externally, but I wouldnt use anything in your vagina. Answered by Zofia Cheetham 4 months ago.
I know that you can take it. A side effect of yeast infections is sometimes you'll get some bleeding, and yes the cream does leak out. Answered by Gregg Buonaiuto 4 months ago.
