I go on antibiotics pretty frequently, and as a result, I get a good amount of yeast infections. BE PREPARED once you insert the creme/egg into your vagina it is going to BURN and ITCH!!

Comment:
The first time I took the 3 day treatment, I experienced the extreme pain and itching that other people described. It was unbearable. But, since then I've taken Monistat 3 again, and most recently Monistat 1, with none of the symptoms. The first time I used Monistat was for an infection that had gone on for 5 days and was bad... later times, the infection was extremely mild and pretty early, s ... Show Full Comment

It comes in a tube that you insert like a tampon, push in the cream, and then remove and discard the tube. I do recommend using this immediately before bed because the cream will come back out once it has done its job, and I also re ... Show Full Comment

This is my first yeast infection and so far it seems to be working. The reviews scared me, but I wanted instant relief so I decided to try it. Only mild itching. The slight discomfort is nothing compared to the pain I had while having sex when it was at its worst. Everyone has different experiences but I would recommend it.

Comment:
I have a yeast infection as a result of antibiotic use. I decided to try the Monistat 3. I inserted the 1st dose tonight and within a few minutes of lying down I experienced intense itching that progressed to a sever burning sensation. I went to the bathroom and saw that much of the cream had leaked out so I wiped as much of it away as possible. While I was wiping I noticed what appeared to be a l ... Show Full Comment
