This was my first time ever having an yeast infection. I got one while taking antibiotics for having really bad bronchitis, so therefore the medicine was a stronger dose of antibiotics. My mother told me about Monistat. So I went to the store and saw Monistat 1. Read the back of it was like this might actually work. Well went home that night did what it said to do then fell asleep. I woke up in t ... Show Full Comment

I have had many YI since my teens (I'm now 39). After 4 welcome years of no yeast I started getting that familiar feeling so thought I would go ahead and treat to stay ahead of it. BIG MISTAKE. I usually use the 3 or 7 day treatments because I tend to have difficult to treat yeast but thought if i just stopped it before it got going then all would be good. I made it through the night with no p ... Show Full Comment

Super impressed!
