Question about Monistat 7?
I bought Monistat 7, the one where you insert the cream inside with an applicator once a day for 7 days. Im on day 6 and I used the last of the cream. Will it still clear my yeast infection if it was only 6 days? I mean I did finish it all, just a day early.
Asked by Rich Wintringham 4 months ago.
Whether or not it's a day early, or right on time, if you used all of it enough of the medication was administered to make an effect. Either way it is the same dosage. You should clear up just fine, although something you should know it may not be gone right on day 7 because the way that the medication works, is that it still has an effect for up to 4 days after taking it, such as the same with an antibiotic. This means that even if it isn't completely gone on day 7, give it a few days to let the medicine work completely. If it doesn't go away, it wasn't because the monistat was finished a day early, that would most likely be due to the fact that it wasn't strong enough. (perhaps you had a severe yeast infection) In this case you would just go to your doctor to be prescribed something stronger. All in all though you should probably be cleared right up in a few days! Hope you feel better soon! Answered by Rod Learn 4 months ago.
Pregnancy and Monistat 7?
I tested positive for pregnancy yesterday on an at home test. I have a yeast infection and I started a 7 day treatment with Monistat last night. If I am pregnant (I've gotten false positives before) will this affect the pregnancy?
Asked by Kathe Mango 4 months ago.
I used Monistat during my pregnancy because my doctor told me I could. The internal Ph balance may get thrown off during pregnancy so it can be more common to get a yeast infection during pregnancy. Good luck with the pregnancy. Oh and Maybe is correct about the Rh factor. I found out I was pregnant after I got both a positive and then negative pregnancy home test. The blood test told my dr. the day I got the negative result was telling me and my dr. I was indeed pregnant. Unfortunately I started bleeding five days later and had I not gone in for blood work I would have thought I had a late period. I was sure I miscarried because the test told me I was. I went to the dr's office to get an ultrasound a few days later which confirmed I miscarried. I also was given a Rhogam shot to prevent me from miscarrying again because I have a negative blood type and hubby has a positive blood type. If any of the babies had a positive blood type I would have required another Rhogam shot but they turned out to be negative. With the one that I miscarried there wasn't anyway to tell if the unborn had positive or negative blood. Answered by Alvin Pagliaro 4 months ago.
It's best to talk with your doctor to find out if Monistat will be o.k. to use. I know of some who have used it and had healthy babies but you want to get treated correctly especially since there's a baby in there. Try to go in and get a blood beta pregnancy test and the dr. can tell you which medication would be best to use during pregnancy. There are even antibiotics that are used for urinary infections during pregnancy rather than other common ones. Congratulations on the pregnancy if the test is accurate. Some hormone or fertility drugs can cause a false positive. Also some women get a positive test and miscarry when they think they are getting their period. Miscarriages happen in about 3 out of 4 women last I heard. If you are Rh- and the father is Rh+ then you want to be sure to get into see the dr. to make sure that you get a rhogam shot if needed to prevent you from miscarrying again if you did. Please get the pregnancy confirmed with a blood test as it's pretty rare to get false positives. Answered by Roxann Dreessen 4 months ago.
I used Monistat during the first trimester of my pregnancy and everything is fine. Your doctor wouldnt suggest something harmful for you or your baby. You can use vaginal creams and suppositories to clear it up. Do know that it may take longer to treat and come back more frequently than if you had it when you werent pregnant!

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 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 Mahalia Youngstrom 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 Troy Hohstadt 4 months ago.

Pregnant and monistat 7?
and just incase i'm 27 weeks pregnant!
Asked by Mario Connerley 4 months ago.
My obgyn put me on monistat 7 for my yeast infection and I'm starting to get really worried because today is the 2nd day I used this, but for the past two days I think I have inserted the tube too deeply because my friend had just mentioned that I was only supposed to insert it halfway, which I went a little over. Will this harm my baby in anyway? This is my first pregnancy and am very worried. And eversince I started using monistat, i began to have yellow discharge. Is this normal? (doesn't sound like it is..) Thank you in advance Answered by Isobel Maczko 4 months ago.
totally TMI, but I've had a "never ending yeast infection" for like a month. Always consult your doctor, they know your history and what should be happening with the treatment you're on, but I will say this. I definitely had light yellow discharge, no smell, just gross and as far as inserting the tube too far, you should be ok. At 27 weeks your cervix should be closed and the baby is protected by the amniotic sac. They only really get concerned when the infection takes place in the first trimester of pregnancy, so you're far enough along for the Monistat treatment. I'm 37.5 weeks now and have been able to take an oral prescriptive medication. Goodluck, continue to treat yourself unless your doctor says otherwise. I totally feel for you, it's enough with all the normal pregnancy discomforts and then to throw in a yeast infection just isn't fair. They're really common in pregnancy- boooo!!!!! 9/2- saw my doctor this morning, yet another yeast infection. I asked him why pregnant women get them and he said it's because our immune systems are lowered and can't deal with the yeast as our bodies normally would. Answered by Stuart Glau 4 months ago.

Does Monistat 7 Work?
I Believe I Have A Yeast Infection And I Have Some Monistat It Still Itches Slightly And I Still Have Discharge How Long Should It Take To Work.?
Asked by Max Caravati 4 months ago.
Get a Vagisil Screening Kit from the pharmacy to see if you do have a yeast infection. If you do....Use Monistat (the 7 day kit is more effective than the 1 time cream or insert) Use a tube each night for 7 nights. Use Monistat external cream and/or Vagisil cream and towelettes for itchy discomfort. During the time you're using the Monistat don't: use tampons, don't douche, don't use a feminine deoderant spray, don't finger yourself, don't use a vibrator, don't have penetrative sex.
