Instead of providing me with a prescription for diflucan my obgyn suggested monistat 7. I had no idea why I wasn't prescribed diflucan or checked for a yeast infection that I clearly know I have.

My vagina was on fire and there was nothing I could ... Show Full Comment

I used monistat 1 and it was the most excruciating experience. I have a high pain tolerance and I was sobbing. I took it at night since that was recommended, and I did not sleep at all. The extreme burning kept me up all night and continued for the next two days. It is now 9 months after I have used the product. I have been experiencing pain during sex ever since using this product. I think it has ... Show Full Comment

This is my first yeast infection and im 15. I didnt know what was wrong for almost a month because the itching wasn't constant(only because i was using Vagisil) but that only worked for a couple of hours and then the faint itching was back. I looked up yeast infections online and i was terrified so i told my parents and my mom bought the 3 day treatment. I wasn't aware that it was supposed ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
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!! But it WILL make you feel better! I woke up the next day good as new. I recommend waiting until you're about to pass out to insert it and then try to fall asleep so you are not conscious for the burning about ... Show Full Comment
