If I Use Monistat Will My Yeast Infection Come Back

For 5% of women their yeast infection will return after treating it with an anti fungal medicine. There are a few reasons for this to happen, and they are explained below.



The cream hasn’t been used properly

One reason why a yeast infection can return after treatment is the cream hasn’t been used for the full course. If you purchase Monistat 7 it has to be used for 7 days. For most women their symptoms will disappear after 2 to 3 days and then they decide to stop the treatment because they think they are cured. It’s only the symptoms that have disappeared, but the infection is still there.

The problem then is when the infection returns it will become resistant to the treatment because the Candia yeast will mutate into an even more aggressive form so the infection then gets worse.

You may not have a yeast infection

A small percentage of women who self diagnose themselves get it wrong so they’re not actually treating a yeast infection. Monistat will lessen the symptoms of other vaginal infections, but it won’t cure them. This means that the real infection is actually getting worse, and then you could cause a yeast infection because of the exposure the Candida in your vagina is getting to the treatment.

Finding the real cause of your yeast infection

If you don’t know the real cause of your infection then no treatment will work. It doesn’t matter how many times you attempt to kill the fungus, if your body can’t stop the yeast mutating naturally it will keep coming back. It could be a drug or medicine you’re taking, or an underlying health condition.

Seeing your doctor

As soon as you start experiencing symptoms of an infection in or around your vagina it’s important to see your doctor as soon as possible. Seeing your doctor makes sure you get a correct diagnosis, and then you’ll get the correct treatment.

Your doctor has your full medical history so he/she will be able to prescribe you the best treatment for you. Anti fungal drugs and medicines can interact with other medicines so if you’re taking anything else your doctor will know if you can’t take another specific treatment with it.

Your doctor can also run some health tests if your yeast infection treatment hasn’t worked first time.

Monistat is the number one choice of yeast infection treatments, and it will cure most women first time. If it hasn’t for you then you should see your doctor if you haven’t seen them already.
