I knew I had a yeast infection (I rarely get them) so I bought the one day monistat treatment. Before the infection I had scheduled my yearly exam which I went to several days after treating myself. DR did a culture and said I still had yeast. She gave me diflucan which always worked in the past but after finishing diflucan I went back in and was diagnosed with BV. I have never had this before. She prescribed metro gel. I finished the 5 day treatment. Husband and I did not have sex during treatment and waited 10 days after finishing treatment. All my symptoms seemed to be gone so we finally had sex. It was slightly painful but nothing bad. Then after sex I was really red and irritated on outside of vagina. Urinating causes pain on the outside and I have to rinse with water afterward. Has anyone had this issue? How long do I have to wait for it to heal?
