... been treating it with natural home remedies but broke down and got monistat 1 day or night yesterday, put it in this morining before work im just wondering how long should I wait to clean down there out with water in the shower? And have sex?
Do NOT douche!!! The vagina does NOT need douching and douching is why you keep having problems. The vagina has a balance of both good and bad bacteria to keep over growth of bad organisms in check. Antibiotics disturb this balance. So does douching. The vagina will cleanse itself. You dont need to "wash" the inside. You can shower and wash the vulva (the outside portions that you can see of female genitals) with a mild soap and water. NEVER. EVER DOUCHE unless a Dr advises you to!! You can have sex in 3-4 days once your symptoms have cleared.
