Reviews for Vagistat-1
"Off and on all my life I've been bothered by Yeast infections and have never found anything better than the Vagistat. Esp. since it's a one time treatment and you're done with it. BUT also the fact that it's not only beneficial for the Candida strain but also some of the rarer resistant types of yeast that are often missed. It might irritate for that day but it works and well worth it in my opinion. Thanks for letting me have some input. D.T."
"Well.. as you will read this product was the WORST. 5 minutes after inserting the egg it began to slowly tingle that turned into an itch that turned into a intense burn... I sat in the toilet for a solid hour before the burn went away and I think its because the pain was so bad I was numb down there LOL but I rated it a 5 because after that hour the pain was about a 1/10 and I didn’t feel itchy at all and a day later I believe my YI was completely cleared up. I only recommend you use this item if u can push through some pain. Try taking something that will put u to sleep 30 minutes before inserting the egg, also not going to lie reading these reviews helped a lot to ease the pain.. god be with us all. LOL"
"I have been suffering with vaginal discharge and yeast infection on and off for approximate 15 years. I used Monistat to no avail. My doctor told me to try Vagistat and two days later, I feel great! I honestly would recommend this product to anyone suffering. At last I can honestly say I feel some relief. Thanks Vagistat"
Frequently asked questions
"Please just get the diflu one time pill. This egg made me cry for hours, I cussed my girlfriend out while itching and burning. I felt like life would be better if I just died. It started to ease up after a few hours but the itch never went away. Oh and the cream that comes with it.. don't even try to use that!!! It makes EVERYTHING worse. It only sucks because some ppl either don't have insurance, or this life ruining infection creeps up on the weekend when u can't go to your obgyn. Females should be able to get the pill from the pharmacy just as well as they can get a plan b because these creams and eggs are a set up."
"I've been using Vagistat-3 & I'm on the second day. The first day I used it the discharge was coming down a lot and the second day it wasn't really any. It's not that itchy anymore, but it's really sore from me itching before I knew what it was. I hope the itching can go away because this is the worst feeling ever."
"To preface, I'm using Vagistat-3, but since there's apparently no option to review that one, I'm going to give my two cents on the Vagistat-1. (Considering the only difference is the size of the dose, I don't think this will be too big of an issue.) My experience has been very good. I've had no pain, no swelling, no burning or itching, or any other unsavory side effects. I can definitely recommend this if you are POSITIVE you have a yeast infection. People are more likely to leave a review when they've had a bad experience. I was terrified & delayed using it for several days because of all of these negative reviews. Also, this kind of product is more likely to cause you painful or uncomfortable side effects if you don't actually have a yeast infection. So please be SURE you have a yeast infection before you try this. If you've never had a yeast infection before, and you've not spoken with a health professional, I would advise against this. Otherwise, I think it's great."
"I've never had an yeast infection before, but know a few people who have and they described it as the worst feeling ever! Well...I AGREE! But after using Vagistat-1 I was relieved of the horrible itching and burning in a little over 8 hours, I still itch a little but the burning is gone (in its defense it did say 3 days). I recommend it to anyone suffering from a vaginal yeast infection."
"I didn't want to deal with the inconvenience of a 7 day treatment which has worked so well for me before, so I decided to try the ovule. I cried first, when it got beyond tears I used a icepack. I ended up in the ER and they had to apply a numbing agent in addition to giving me an injection for the internal relief. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!"
"I went to the Doctor and was told I had a yeast infection . They gave me a 7 day treatment it went away but symptoms came back 2 weeks later. I was so irritated that I came and bought Vagistat 1 day treatment tonight couldn’t wait until tomorrow to see a Doctor. I literally just inserted it and I feel relief already no burning or irritation."
"Had difficulty putting egg in with tube. Washed my hands good and put like you would a tampon without the applicator. Because the first egg dissolved quickly after having a hard putting it in . I decided to put another egg in lol to be on the safe side. So far so good"
"I was honestly so worried that I had Trichomoniasis until I read the difference between the vaginal discharge. I was so relieved to find out that it's a yeast infection(self diagnosed don't judge). I just started my Vagistat-3 day one about an hour ago and honesty I don't feel as bad of burning as I did. There still some itch but for the most part I can feel it starting to soothe my poor girl. Due to itching it was so swollen and sore. Now the swelling has definitely gone down some. THANK YOU VAGISTAT! (update tomorrow)"
"I purchase the 1 day ovule, it's been 4 days and I'm getting constant burning and itching. I'm not sure if this gonna cure my yeast infection. Can't get an earlier appointment with my doctor so I'm now in line at the store getting the 3 day pre application tioconozale"
"After a weird reoccurring yeast infection I decided to finally pick up this treatment. Wished I had read the reviews before using, but alas. After inserting the medication before bed, I ended up waking up about 4 hours later to intense tingling and VERY sore vulva and vagina. I was finally able to go to sleep and when I woke up in the morning the soreness almost totally disappeared, but my vulva and vagina are really swollen. I panicked at first but after reading the reviews it seems to be a common occurrence. On the bright side it already seems to be working for the yeast infection! I'll probably take some OTC anti inflammatory to help with the swelling. But despite all that I am actually quite pleased with the product."
"I used vagistat-1 last night- the next day later (today) in the evening I was still itching , now it’s night almost morning & I'm in so much pain. Granted I didn’t get this recommended by a Dr. but I know that this is a yeast infection do to antibiotics. I’m hoping that I can just fall asleep & have it be better by tomorrow because oh god I cannot take the pain . These are common side effects but I wish I read the reviews. There were so many options in Walmart & this was a few $ cheaper than Monistat (I should have just gone with the 3 or 7 day)- I had assumed that this would be the best one considering it helps cure more than 1 type of yeast. Going to try to put an ice pack on it to see if that helps. Will comeback & review if/when gone. Pray for me ladies. But don’t be discouraged, this medication is just strong."
"At first it feels like its not working and u feel like u have no hope but I promise it works well, at least it did for me. Personally I didn’t really feel the progress until night time and then u can really tell it’s working , and I’m on night 2 and I feel a drastic change in itching and burning . The cream also helped a lot with healing soreness and irritation!!"
"Used this after I noticed heavy white cream discharge and itching, and dryness. So I used this from Walmart felt relief instantly so I was like ok. Then woke up at night ITCHING not intense but I wanted to scratch badly and had a headache.. This is only a few hours from 9pm-3am"
"So I came to read the reviews for totally different reasons and I'm super surprised at how many people had negative reactions. I think it might have burned a little and itch in the very beginning but almost immediately soon the symptoms I had from the infection within the first 30 minutes. I'm now on the day after and it feels so much better. I was swollen itchy and burning a little before I think the medication but the medication didn't cause the symptoms to get worse. It actually rectified the problem pretty swiftly. I can only assume that the other people who had negative reactions are either allergic to the ingredients in this medication because there are inactive ingredients other than the tioconazole, or had a much more severe yeast infection that I had. This medication is a lifesaver and I'm so glad it's on the market!"
"I suddenly developed an itch that wouldn't go away. Then my urine started burning my skin. At that point I knew something was definitely wrong, so I bought Vagistat-1 (don't be like me, always see a doctor first) and used it before bedtime. I have vaginismus, but this applicator went in relatively easily, and you might have a mild itchy/burn feeling (that's normal). I stayed laying down after using it and then went to sleep. By morning, the itching was mostly gone, and by the afternoon, I felt completely normal again. The itching has not come back. I did not have an issue with the ointment coming back out or staining my underwear. I am highly satisfied with the effectiveness of this medication!"
"This product is very good. I have problems with yeast due to periods and eating starchy products. This products works rapidly. I recommend this product 100%."
"I used Vagistat last night and it is now the following morning. It has definitely helped to the degree that it's not all I think about. I would recommend this to anyone."
"Burning burning The cream helped a bit, but the internal treatment made me itch like crazy. Hoping day two will be better"
"This only one that works for me when all others fail."
"Didn't help much. Did the 3 day one."
