I don’t know re: Monistat, but I get yeast infections all the time and while TTC I used the oral treatment (flucanozole) in case the vaginal some way impeded sperm. It works really quickly and well for me too!

Yeast infections have the worst timing!

Honestly, your doctor would be the best resource for you regaridng this question. I don’t know whether monistat would harm his sperm, but I am thinking it probably would. It couldn’t hurt to try anyway, except that it is possible for DH to get a yeast infection through unprotected sex with you. If I were in your shoes I would call and talk to your doc. Sorry! And good luck!

My guess is that the cream in which the medication is suspended probably would be an impediment to sperm motility. This won’t prevent you from getting pregnant, but could make it more unlikely.

In the future, if you get recurrent YI during fertile times, I’d try oral fluconazole.

SIDE NOTE: I had a lot of YI early in pregnancy and a bout of recurrant YI leading up to TTC … and what ended up working for me to get rid of it overall was a twice daily for 2 days 50/50 water/hydrogen peroixde douche followed by using plain yogurt as an overnight suppository to replenish healthy flora. I know, I know: DOUCHING BAD. In general, I agree. I am dead serious when I say I tried everything else. Fluconazole worked for me pre-pregnancy, but I almost always got more yeast infections. Thankfully, whatever happy hormones were causing them in my first tri don’t seem to be giving me grief after I wiped it out with the hydrogen peroxide.
