I have been unable to tell if it is the medicine or the yeast. I have had this yeast infection for almost two weeks now, so that is why I decided to give Monistat 1 a go. I want to be able to have sex again, but I feel like I shouldn't as long as I have this yeast infection. When is all of the yeast in my vagina going to go away? The itching has stopped, but the yeast appears to still be there and all I want is for that to go away and there to be no more discharge
The single dose vaginal preparations used to treat vaginal yeast infection are designed to stay around. They are formulated to stay within the vagina to work without having to re-apply every day for seven days. It is normal to get some medicine leakage/discharge. These products may be a bit messy but they are effective.
Most yeast infections clear up within a week so it may be worth seeing your Dr if you are still having symptoms.
There's no medical reason not to engage in safe sex when you have a yeast infection. Avoiding intercourse won't help your infection clear any sooner.
With a yeast infection it is very uncomfortable to have sex with a yeast infection and can burn
