I had a yeast infection 5 years ago and I got the same symptoms, my discharge was creme colored and not chunky so I did a monistat 1 day. The next day my discharge is still itchy my labia was swollen and my discharge is white and chunky. When I treated myself before I did not have these issues, it went away basically the next day. Should I take the monistat 1 again?
Yeast infection help should I re do monistat 1?

Please do not advise a woman Not to go to the ER. My yeast infection did not clear. I used Monistat 7. I went to Urgent Care got an antibiotic. I called the Doctors Office all week has symptoms worsened, no Nurse called back. Thursday night my daughter came home, gave two young babies to her husband and took me to ER. It turned septic. I told the ER doctor I was going to wait to the following day to come in, while the Grandbabies napped. The ER Doc said if I waited I would have died. I had an IV line attached for weeks, hospitalized, and sent home with an IV attached to administer antibiotics. Be careful with bladder and yeast infections ladies, our lives are more fragile than we know. Error on the side of caution.
I’d say stick with monistat 7 and not the 1. I know my symptoms got worse overnight when I used the 1. As soon as I used the 7 it started to clear up.
Just do it again.
Any vaginal infection can lead to PID which is life threatening. So your over reaction could lead to the death of some young girl who comes here for answers because she doesn't want to tell her parents.
Really! For Christs sake! Dont go to the ER, A yeast infection is NOT an emergency! It is people like that who clog up the ER and make everyone have to wait longer! Save the ER for true emergencies. Now if you want to go to Urgent Care, yes, but not the ER!!! Now to answer your question, Monistat 1 can take up to seven days to work fully. Wait for seven days, if your symptoms are not cleared up then it is probably NOT a yeast infection and you need to see your gynecologist (or go to Urgent Care if you like) for a diagnosis and treatment.
You don't go to the er for a yeast infection. This is NOT an emergency. If the symptoms are continuing you can do it over but if it doesn't go away see your dr. It could be something other then yeast.
