Reviews for Monistat 7 to treat Vaginal Yeast Infection

Sort by:

"Been itching for days and I couldn't take it no more so I went to the store and got Monistat 7. Within seconds I felt a mild burning..no biggie right..I ran to my bed to lay down. Within minutes..my coochie was on fire. I laid there for a good 10 minutes and couldn't take it anymore. I ran to the bathroom and showered my coochie with water for a good 5 minutes. Never again will I use this product. I ended up using organic coconut oil and got relieved from all this itching and burning. I'm returning this product tomorrow."

"NEVER again will I purchase this product. I NEVER do reviews but I figured it let the next woman know so that she won't experience the pain and agony I'm currently experiencing! The nurse at my drs office advised me to purchase this product until I was able to be seen in the office. WORSE DECISION EVER! Here I am on day 2 itching and burning like crazy after inserting, mind you I was absolutely fine before doing so. It is HORRIBLE and I cannot wait to call the nurse in the morning!"

"I had just applied it and immediately right after I feel the burn.. I felt that the medicine should be calming effect rather than burning sensation to the point that it irritates your mind and the feeling of uncomfortable with slight nausea. I bought the 7 day Monistat for my YI. Let's see if tomorrow works better.. I had tried other cream-insert-brand like Canesten Cream, I felt relieve right after use.. Hence Monistat needs to relook in to the medications provide in the cream. Because I had bought two boxes, and I regretted getting two box (one for spare).."

"The first night on this med was almost unbearable with the burning, tossed and turned all night! Second night (this evening), took a hot shower, took ibuprofen before that, then inserted cream, it's been an hour now and it's burning a little but it's wayyyyy more tolerable than first night. Hopefully this gives some of you hope! :)"

"This product is horrible. You would think that after applying this cream you would feel like at least somewhat better and at ease, well that's not the case here. It made my lady parts burn and itch to the point where I couldn't take it anymore and had to take a shower for 40min and I'm still in discomfort! And no it does not feel better after 3 hours, yes your symptoms of the YI improve but I'm telling you it's not worth it!"

"I am laying in bed, vag on fire, can't sleep because of this horrendous medicine. I am on day 3 and I will not finish the full regimen. It is absolutely shameful that the company is marketing and selling his product as is. Clearly there's been a change in the formula-- something's not right."

"This is my first YI, I was itching terribly and know a thing or two about it so I figured what the heck I'll try this med before I waste my time with a doc around me. BIG mistake. Don't take this lightly when I say WORST ITCHING POSSIBLE. I put it in&went straight to my bed like it said to do. & it's not even on the outside where you can scratch it. It's the inside&it's horrible. Worse than the infection symptoms itself. At first I was reading through these thinking ok if I can just get to day 3 but it just kept getting worse. So I tried the ice pack like someone recommended.. it worked! Sure my itching stopped but then my vagina was frozen in a few minutes. "

"I used Monistat 3 before and it kind of cleared it up but I had to use yogurt inserts for about two to three days to really help it go away. I then got another yeast infection a week or two later and bought Monistat 7 since I'm pregnant and I was told that's my best option. It was crazy itchy after the first two days but it got better and the itch and pain is pretty much gone. I itch the slightest at times and I worry but maybe I'm being dramatic. I have one more day left and it's done it's job. If anything some yogurt to help finish it off! I've had pretty good results for Monistat 3 and 7. Don't let the other comments scare you! It obviously doesn't work for a lot or only the people who had negative comments wrote reviews "

"Yes this is a great form of torture: After 3 weeks of failed attempts to get an answer, tried waterboarding, electrocution, the works, I used this and got the confession I needed."

"Do NOT use this! I got a very mild yeast infection right after my period and decided I didn't want to wait another month, so I picked this up at the store to speed things along. A couple minutes after application my vagina was ON FIRE. It burned and itched so badly my whole body was twitching and I was tossing and turning in bed and crying. The burning finally mostly subsided in about 2 hours, my vagina was still pretty itchy, but I managed to fall asleep. The next day I picked up a store brand of clotrimazole and that stuff worked wonders, I got relief immediately and there was absolutely no burning or itching!"

"After 6 weeks on Doxycycline & Prednisone for pneumonia, I got a mild YI. First usage felt like someone had doused my lady bits in lighter fluid & stuck a grilling match up there. OMG the burning and itching!!! Treatment 2, same thing. The burn and itch are insane!!! It feels as though Satan himself has taken up residence in my vagina and ripped my vaginal walls out to replace them with fire & brimstone. NEVER AGAIN!!!"

"This is my second pregnancy and my first time experiencing yeast infections, although this is my second yeast infection with this pregnancy. The first time I was prescribed terconazole and it was so much better then this Monistat 7! My vagina feels terrible and I'm really debating on continuing taking this"

"I've had YI in the past, and they would go away either by pill or just because. This time I was fed up so I bought the monistat 7 day pack and BOY OH BOY. Less than a minute of inserting that thang it started to BURN. I'm saying like putting hot bacon grease on your kitty type burn. Sitting in a bath full of hot sauce type burn. Dropping the curling iron on your kitty type burn. And it's gonna burn for a good 30 minutes. I really wanted to scratch but I couldn't. I'm telling you, this thang is on FIRE. So it betta work in the morning. And this YI better be gone after these 7 days bc I can't do dis no mo."

"I agree with everone else regarding the intense itchy feeling and pain right after inserting the cream, but it gets better after about 20 minutes. The trick is to use anti-itch cream or anti-itch wipes right after you apply the cream. These wipes were heaven-sent. My obgyn suggested the 7 day treatment because it's not as irritating as the 3 day one. This product works despite its annoying side effects so do not stop using if you can. After 1-2 treatments, the itchiness stopped during the day."

"I haven't used an over the counter medicine for a yeast infection in years. If I've ever gotten them in the past, my doctor has prescribed something, but I don't usually get them. I didn't want to make a visit to the doctor and so I tried Monistat 7. I remember this medicine hurting like CRAZY years ago but I thought I'd try it again since it's been so long. I wish I could go back in time!!!! On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the worst pain-burning-itching, I was at a 10 after inserting the medicine, and I'm just now at a 7 or 8, 18 minutes later. This kills!!!!! I will not be taking the other doses, and I will make an app't with my doctor for a pill to cure this. I don't know what to do to get rid of the intense burning."

"After three weeks of antibiotic for an upper respiratory infection I developed a yeast infection. My doctor prescribed Fluconazole 100 mg and Monistat 7. The burning from the cream vaginally I thought was part of the curing process. After 3 days I had burning so bad I stopped using it. Now after 3 doses of Flucon. and trying Monistat periodically again burning like fire ants in my crotch I am returning to my Doc screaming!!! No Monistat will ever be used again by me"

"So the first time I used this product I was burning like crazy! I ended up with an infection again a couple months later & decided to try again ( The same pack) although I only have 6 days of product the box says if I don't see a change in 3 days to see a doc, so I'm assuming the whole 7 days aren't all that necessary anyway.. Oh well this is my first day trying it after the last horrible experience. But this time I don't feel ANY burning... A lady told me tampering with the vagina before using the product can cause burning (ex. From itching or wiping vigorously) ..."

"I'm 5 months pregnant and was told I could only use the Monistat 7 to rid me of my YI. After itching for days I gave in and went and bought the expensive product. I had no I idea it would increase the burn itch by 10 fold!!! Awful awful awful, I immediately laid down after application and instantly started to burn and itch. After 15 mins I tried to rinse in shower it just seemed to get worse I did have some relief by using instant itch relief cream I used just outside vaginal opening I was able to lay down without writhing in pain but itching is still present!! Ice pack helped mildly, I would definitely recommend to lather up the instant itch relief cream."

"My first yeast infection and I'm 11 weeks pregnant. Talked to the dr and he prescribed me this monistat from hell. Inserted the cream thinking it would be fast relief. Was I ever wrong!! Itching, burning, rocking back and forth in severe pain. wondering if I did it correctly or if the dr prescribed me the wrong stuff. Attempted to clean it off with a baby wipe but it burned even more so I just sat there crying in pain, hoping it would stop soon. Started researching some natural ways to get rid of yeast infections. I found eating yogurt and garlic, if eaten or inserted in the vagina over night (I know, sounds weird) but I'm willing to try any alternative just so I don't have to go through that burning itchy feeling again."

"This was painful 2 minutes after inserting the cream I was in burning fiery itchy hell! I was concerned that I was having a serious reaction to the cream, then after reading others experiences I realized that this is one of the side effects, the package says to take at bedtime, I took during the day... I can not see how anyone would be able to sleep with the intensified burning! I too had to hold a washcloth to my crotch and cry."

"Right after insertion I thought "here comes relief" .....then the burn hit. I'm lying on floor trying to ride this out but it is painful beyond burning. I feel like I have acid up there. I don't do reviews but this product needs to be discontinued and every package remaining burned so no one goes through this."

"I had mild itch so, like everybody else, bought the 7 day treatment. The first day I applied and man did it burn and itch, I just thought that it was because it was reacting to the yeast infection and it will only get better. Man was I wrong! I am now on the 3rd day and it feels just as worst as the 1st day, after i insert the medicine. I can't do this for another 4 nights. Definitely stopping the medicine after today, I simply can't. The burning and itching is VERY uncomfortable and hurts. 10x worse than the itch during the day."
