Monistat 1 causes a major burning sensation. I inserted the ovule last night and then applied the external cream. My external vaginal area now burns much more than it did before any treatment. It's bothering me so much that I decided to Google "Does Monistat 1 work well." I wish I Googled that before I treated myself. I've come to learn that many, many women feel much worse after ...

This medicine made me burn and itch even more than I did before I started taking it. I cried and had to rinse off the cream that I put on the outside. Im still miserable and have to tough it out tonight, honestly not worth it, I shoudl of just went straight to the doctors instead of trying to deal with the pain :( im not having a goodnight at all. By far the worst pain and discomfort ever.

I don't recommend this to anyone, and don't think it should be sold over-the-counter! I did try ... Show Full Comment

Had a YI after taking strong antibiotics, bought Monistat 1 b/c I thought it would be the most hassle-free of all the Monistats. Wish I never took it, I'd rather deal w/ the YI, which wasn't even bad to begin with. The YI was nothing compared to the pain I'm in from this med. I took the ovule at 1 AM on a Fri and Sat afternoon I began getting extreme itching and soon after extreme burn ... Show Full Comment

I've decided to write a review since there are a lot of neg ones. I'll be honest, when I first took this I didn't have the most pleasant experience and reading some reviews freaked me out. Here's my history -- I was diagnosed with yeast infection last year by my obgyn of which she prescribed a one day oral medicine. It took a few days for it to work, but I don't recall ha ...
