    The first time I took the 3 day treatment, I experienced the extreme pain and itching that other people described. It was unbearable. But, since then I've taken Monistat 3 again, and most recently Monistat 1, with none of the symptoms. The first time I used Monistat was for an infection that had gone on for 5 days and was bad... later times, the infection was extremely mild and pretty early, s ... Show Full Comment

    I'm glad I didn't let some of the more worrisome reviews for this product scare me away from it. I used the cream for three days after a week of having the YI. It comes in a tube that you insert like a tampon, push in the cream, and then remove and discard the tube. I do recommend using this immediately before bed because the cream will come back out once it has done its job, and I also re ... Show Full Comment

    This is my first yeast infection and so far it seems to be working. The reviews scared me, but I wanted instant relief so I decided to try it. Only mild itching. The slight discomfort is nothing compared to the pain I had while having sex when it was at its worst. Everyone has different experiences but I would recommend it.

    I have a yeast infection as a result of antibiotic use. I decided to try the Monistat 3. I inserted the 1st dose tonight and within a few minutes of lying down I experienced intense itching that progressed to a sever burning sensation. I went to the bathroom and saw that much of the cream had leaked out so I wiped as much of it away as possible. While I was wiping I noticed what appeared to be a l ... Show Full Comment

    I had my first YI and self diagnosed. I went to the drugstore and purchased the 3 day. I waited several hours because I wanted to take it at bed time. I usually have very sensitive skin and allergies, but had no reaction to this medication. The only discomfort is the cream leaking out. After three days my symptoms were significantly better and the discharge was gone. However, it took roughly a wee ... Show Full Comment
