Should I take Monistat? Do I have a yeast infection?


Question Posted Saturday April 23 2011, 6:55 am

So on Wednesday night I noticed a little bit of the cottage-cheese looking discharge and I had a itchy/burning/etc. vagina. All the symptoms of a yeast infection. So Thursday I called my doctor and she said I should probably get Monistat. However, I haven't had any other discharge (other than my period, which I'm on -_-), only an itchy/irritated vagina since yesterday. I don't have any of the cottage-cheese looking discharge today. So, basically I don't know if I should use the MOnistat. I've never had a yeast infection before, so I obviously have never used Monistat. I'm just nervous, probably also because I don't typically use tampons. /:

Anyway, I don't know if it's a yeast infection? I only have the itchiness and irritation, no more discharge other than from my period. Should I take the Monistat. My doctor's office is closed now and I can't get an appt. until Tues.

Also, if I don't use the cream, should I use the external cream for itchiness

If you are not sure about this, you could try plain yoghurt (like greek yoghurt) with lots of acidophilus in it. You can rub in on the outside and put it on the inside. It feels cold, so a bit stingy, but you just put it on for as long as you can handle. It works a charm!

Otherwise, do you have a free health phone line where you are? You may be able to ring it and tell your symptoms to a nurse/doctor and get their opinion. Also, ringing a pharmacy and asking to talk to the pharmacist is great! Describe your symptoms to them and they will tell you if you should use that medicine or not. They have got years of training and really know their stuff!
