Scary! I have used Monistat quite a few times with no bad effects (thank god). I found that for me personally the one day treatment doesn’t work as well as the 3 or 7 day, but I have never used the cream to relieve symptoms on the outisde OR have had nearly as bad yeast infection as you did. I hope you are doing much better now!

I’ve used it many a times for yeast infections and have never had a bad reaction.  I do feel like it doesn’t always kill it all the way and it comes back though.  Which makes the 20 bucks a rip off when you still have to go to the doctor anyway.  I’m sorry you had a bad experience.  Nothing is worse than a puffed up vag!  I can’t even imagine.  Sounds awful.

That sucks! Really glad right now that I’ve only ever treated with medicine from a doctor.

That sounds like it sucked, but I’ve never had any issues with Monistat. I’ve used it three times, I think? But I always use the 7-day because it’s a lower dose and helps make sure the issue goes away. It’s also what my OB-GYN recommended and I Googled the hell out of it. It does burn a bit the first 15 or so minutes, but not much worse than it already feels. Blechh.

Too Much Information – I tried the garlic thing and not only did it gross me out, it burned WORSE.

My gina hurts for you just by reading the description!

Wow, so glad you got things under control….all drugs are evil 😉 You take anti-biotic to help one thing and they create another problem!

Yikes!! sorry to hear about the issues!

I have used monistat for years. I used to suffer from cronic yeast infections (like every other week) and I have never had a problem except once when I had a yeast infection and a UTI at the same time. I had the exact same symptoms (but not as severe because I didn’t swell up). I was in the bath trying to get the stuff out too! I think maybe the monistat interacts negatively with the UTI (But I am no doctor by any means!!).

Maybe you are sensitive to one of the ingredients it uses? 

Hope you’re feeling better!!

This isn’t an issue for everyone so your blanket message isn’t a good one. I have used this plenty of times with not negative effects. 

I’m wondering why your doctor told you to use it & then said she wished they’d pull it from the shelf…

I’ve used it before and never had had anything like that happen. I’m sorry that happened to you, I think you were just allergic to it. I’m glad your better! 🙂

I’m not sure why your tone is so hostile towards me. I misread but I still think that your reaction is less common than those who feel relief. 

Then again, anyone that gets their medical advice from the bee is on their own…

Damn, I am sorry to hear that.. I never had a problem with it.. using it about two times…. I usually just stick to the prescription my doc gives me anyway (plus it’s cheaper).. so have a prescription on hand for next time you need it.
