I self-diagnosed, based on many years' experience with occasional yeast infections. I'd never used the 1-day before. Within minutes of use, I was burning, inflamed, and scared that I'd done something horrible to myself! The whole area, including my anus was swollen and stinging. 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 ...

I hope I provide some insight as I have a lot of experience: Used Monistat-1 Ovule three times, 1-pre filled applicator 2 times, 3 day creams 2 times... have had multiple yeast infections, diagnosed by doctors. Monistat-1 is a very concentrated, powerful dose. It does produce burning and swelling, but even the weaker creams have that effect to a point. And the more raw you are from the yeast to be ...

THINK TWICE!...CUZ IT'S LIKE ROLLING DICE. Although I was skeptical I tried Mon1 for the 1st time last year and surprisingly it did the job. I remember feeling a LITTLE burn after insertion but literally only for a few minutes. I used it 2 days ago for the second and LAST time. It made my symptoms worse and even caused more symptoms. I'm miserable now. This is what I get for trying to sav ... Show Full Comment
