jh1581 Posted March 11, 2007 Share Posted March 11, 2007 I just went to the gyno last Tuesday and 2 days later, I developed a yeast infection (I think it's from the lubrication she used to do the internal exam which leaked out for hours afterwards; plus I'm on the pill and have been under LOTS of stress lately). Because the weekend came and the itching was becoming unbearable, I bought and used one of those Monistat 1-day/night doses (it's in the shape of an egg and says it's guaranteed to stay in place). It's been about 36 hours since I used it and at this point, when I look down there with a mirror, it's not red and irritated anymore, but I don't know if the current discharge is from the melting Monistat or from the actual infection..AND the itching has started again. I'm away from home, trying to get some work done, but it's a little hard to sit still. Ughhh!! I probably won't get another appointment with my doctor until Tuesday or maybe even Wednesday. I'm losing my patience and want it to go away asap!! For those of you with recurrent yeast infections (I seem to have them about once every 2 or 3 months lately), how has the Monistat worked for you? I've used it once before; but I know Diflucan works MUCH better even though it takes a few days. Do you all think I just need to give the Monistat more time to work before the infection goes away? What else has worked for you all? I also bought homeopathic AZO for yeast infections; you take 3 if you have an actual infection and 1/day to prevent recurrences (I don't know about that though). What do you all know about Azo? Ughhh....sometimes it SUCKS being a woman ](*,) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
