Have you self-treated with Monistat?  I was having problems last year, self treated twice, with no relief, and finally went to the doctor.  Turns out I had a different kind of infection and had to go on antibiotics.

well… it probabaly is just normal cervical fluid discharge if it didn’t itch… but it could have been an infection

I know before I started charting and looking at that stuff to avoid getting pregnant… I thought I was broken. Turns out that it’s normal discharge…

did it look like anything in this chart? (it even has a section telling you what to look for in infections)

you could have ovulated later than normal… and it could have just been a bout of extra fertile fluids!

but if you’re concerned I wouldn’t hesitate to go to the doc about it 🙂

@soyjoy222:  I would go to the doctor. I am currently in the midst of all kinds of lady issues and an infection was one of em. I had annoying back pains and a very slight discharge that didn’t seem too noticeable to me. I had to do a weeks worth of antibiotics. I also ended up with an abnormal pap smear and now have to go in on saturday for some procedure where they freeze the abnormal cells. Take a lesson from me, don’t try and self diagnose : just go in and let them tell you exactly what is going on. If it’s nothing than that’s great! better to stay on top of it then to let it progress.

If you do not want to go to the doctor, you can purchase a kit to check if you indeed have a yeast infection.  If you do, you could then purchase monostat or whatever product you want to clear it up.  But you shouldn’t treat a yeast infection unless you are sure you have one as good bacteria can get killed from the treatment.

I’d call your doc. I thought I had a YI b/c of discharge even though I had no burning or itching, I used Monistat and it still didn’t go away and I was still having pelvic pain. The doc did a swab and turned out I had a bacterial intection which needed to be treated with a gel in my heynanenane every night for 5 nights. It cleared up after 2 doses and I still continued the antibiotics and it went away and hasn’t come back thankfully.

Side note: Don’t ever use the monistat 1 day, it burns a lot and you’ll want to rip your vagina off.
