I've also sat in the shower and tried to dig t ... Show Full Comment

I am on the first day after using monistat 3 and no relief, I'm hoping the reviews about relief happening after the second dose are true. I took a test to make sure it was not a more serious infection and so far this medicine has not helped me. I wish I would've gone to the doctor first.

Otherwise, you may be allergic to an ingredient within the product. Ho ... Show Full Comment

Let me tell you a story whilst clutching an ice pack to my vagina in between my legs. As I put the giant egg into the suppository, I was frightened because it looked like I was about to put a f*cking scepter into my vagina. Low and behold, the nice pointy scratchy suppository hurt like hell getting into my already dry, sore vagina. Then I couldn't get the d*mn thing up there without wanting to ... Show Full Comment
