If you have BV monistat won't do a thing for it. That is bacterial. You need an antibiotic. If monistat was used and it didn't work, see a dr to find out exactly what is causing the infection, so it can be treated appropriately.
I get something from my OBGYN, it's the active ingredient in Monistat. Extremely strong, still 7 day vaginal suppository but I had one that would not go away, I did Diflucan and one round of the Rx Monistat (sorry I can't remember name) and it knocked it right out!!!
I agree with Kaismama. You my well have something different. There are many forms of yeast as well as biological critters. STD may also be present. Only a physician will test for all. Sorry for the news, but that is how it is for women.
If it is yeast an uncircumcised partner can harbor the yeast and keep giving it back to you, both of you may have to be treated.
