I believe I have an extremely nasty yeast infection right now.

I had white discharge, pain during intercourse, and this goddamn burning itch that is just driving me insane.

I used Monistat 1 Day and Night, and they had this cream was just not cutting it. I still apply it twice a day as per instructions, but I bought Vagisil to help with that ridiculous itch.

After I started using Vagisil, my vaginal discharge turned yellow. Is this a side effect of the Vagisil? Or is it really not a yeast infection that I have?

Its been 6 days since I used the monistat and there has been some relief but it hasn't cleared up completely. I'm still waking up in the middle in the night with the itch and it is extremely bad. I don't remember previous yeast infections raging this badly.

Course, my period decided to pop up in the middle of this, so my week is just amazing! [Frown]

Aww! Big hugs! If the medicine you used didn`t clear it up, and you are still having problems, then it`s time to go in to the doctor and get this taken care of. It may be that it wasn`t really a yeast infection to begin with, or it may be that the OTC medication isn`t strong enough to clear up this yeast infection. So go ahead and get in to the doctor ASAP so you can get this treated. Feel better soon!

Thanks for the hugs! They're much needed.

My itch has gotten loads better today, for some weird reason. If it's still bad tomorrow (it'll be 7 days) I'll call my gynie stat.

Thanks a bunch!!
