Monistat wouldn't hurt your partner during sex but I think they say don't have sex because if you have the cream inside you will lose the dose. However, if you are using condoms then it could affect that.
Important safety information:
Monistat 3 Cream is for vaginal use only. Avoid contact with the eyes, nose, or mouth. If you get Monistat 3 Cream in your eyes, flush with a generous amount of cool water.
It is important to use Monistat 3 Cream for the full course of treatment. Failure to do so may decrease the effectiveness of Monistat 3 Cream and increase the risk that the fungus will no longer be sensitive to Monistat 3 Cream and will not be able to be treated by this or certain other antibiotics in the future.
If your symptoms do not improve within 3 days, if they last more than 7 days, or if they become worse, stop using Monistat 3 Cream and contact your health care provider at once. You may have a more serious illness.
Do not use Monistat 3 Cream for itching caused by other conditions.
Dry the outside vaginal area completely after showering, bathing, or swimming. Do not go swimming for at least 9 to 12 hours after applying Monistat 3 Cream. Change out of wet bathing suits or damp workout clothes as soon as possible.
Continue using Monistat 3 Cream even during your menstrual period. Do not use tampons while you are using Monistat 3 Cream or until all of your symptoms go away. Use unscented pads or pantiliners.
Do not have vaginal sexual intercourse while you are using Monistat 3 Cream.
Monistat 3 Cream may decrease the effectiveness of condoms and diaphragms, increasing the chance of pregnancy or risk of sexually transmitted disease.
Do not use tampons, douches, spermicides, or other vaginal products while using Monistat 3 Cream.
Overuse of topical products may worsen your condition.
Do not use Monistat 3 Cream in CHILDREN younger than 12 years of age unless advised to do so by your health care provider.
PREGNANCY and BREAST-FEEDING: If you become pregnant while taking Monistat 3 Cream, discuss with your doctor the benefits and risks of using Monistat 3 Cream during pregnancy. It is unknown if Monistat 3 Cream is excreted in breast milk. If you are or will be breast-feeding while you are using Monistat 3 Cream, check with your doctor or pharmacist.
