I saw my doctor and she prescribed me treatment for the infection. I'm pretty sure this is the 6th nights treatment and I was wondering if the little bit of continuing itch is normal? Does that mean it's healing? And to top it off I'm having to treat a UTI in the process of treating this yeast infection. Also can I have intercourse 4 days after treatment of the yeast infection? HELP!
Monistat 7 - my first EXTREMELY bad yeast infection, how long does itch last?

Firstly, yes you can have intercourse while having a yeast infection. Vaginal yeast infections are not STI's (sexually transmitted infections). Secondly, depending on the severity of the infection the itch could last 7 to 14 days. A small number of people will have repeat infections. Usually, these will improve with repeated treatment. You should see your doctor again if you still have symptoms after two weeks.
