 1  yeast infection Please get a prescription from your obgyn or only use the CVS labeled one. CVS one is mild and from my experience, the CVS one doesn't cause reactions. DO NOT BUY Monistat and also please check label ingredients on any product you use for your skin or body. I've had twice the mistake of pur chasing Monistat because CVS isn't close by. Please check with your doctor. F 28 3 days

 4  yl I have always used m7. And yes it burns inside and out because the infection is drying me up and im raw. So I started putting a bit of ky on the tube to slide in and help my burning the 1st few night's. And yes this has always made a huge difference. The 1 and 3 kills me too strong. F 34 7 days

 1  Yeast Infection SEVERE burning and itching. Unbearable....I literally cried it was so bad. I don't know what the company has done to the formula....probably changed it to save money!

 4  Yeast Infection This is my second yeast infection that I treat. The first I used canesten 1. My yeast infection was much worse then so I thought why not try something a little more gentle since the itching and burning wasn't as intense. As soon as I inserted the capsule and applied the cream I felt a mild burning. It's more like a really warm feeling but it doesn't bother me. I just saw some of the reviews and I didn't have the intense burning, it's pretty tolerable actually. I'd say the discomfort is a 2 out of 10. I just hope this works!! Good luck to everyone F 19 7 days

 3  Yeast infection The first day was perfect it made if feel a lot better.... Second day after I used it, it felt kind of itchy and the cream kept leaking.. I'm on the third day now and I am currently lying down trying not to think about the severe itching I am having.. It is definitely helping the infection its just that the side effects are bad F 14 3 days

 5  yeast infection caused by antibioti I read all of these pretty bad side effects for this medication and it was a little scary to use it at first! Thankfully, I experienced absolutely NO burning. No pain at all, actually! Maybe a very mild itching but that would go away within an hour of taking it. And I experienced pain relief from the yeast infection the following morning. F 20 4 days

 4  Yeast Infection from antibiotics No severe side effects so far. Just felt warm down there and itches a little bit, but no worse than what it had been. Was a little hesitant about using this because I'm currently 11 weeks pregnant but after reading reviews and talking to other moms-to-be, I would definitely recommend it to other pregnant women with a yeast infection. I got the combo pack with wipes and itch cream, and the wipes were a godsend after going about 3 days with nothing to help. F 26 7 days

 4  yeast infection I love this stuff!! I am 32 weeks pregnant and noticed so heavy whitesh discharge. Sure enough my doctor diagnosed it as a yeast infection and prescribed over the counter monistat 7. Today was only my first day but i can already feel a difference. I didnt notice or have the really bad burning and itching in the first hour at all. I just felt a sense of cool relief for about 30 minutes. Great product! F 22 1 days

 3  Yeast infection First dosage I experienced burning like crazy for the first 10 min then I knocked. I am currently on day 2 and the burning isn't as bad as the first night. After the first night I felt no discomfort in my clothing and had less itching and burning from before trying monistat 7. I'm 23 weeks pregnant with my first yeast infection ever. And it sucks. So far monistat is working for me. F 1 days

 3  Pregnancy Yeast Infection This is my second yeast infection ever. The first time I used Monistat 1 and it was the biggest mistake I've ever made. The itching and burning sent me to Urgent Care. I ended up using prescription medication. This time I'm 30 weeks pregnant and didn't want to risk taking anything without a doctor's advice. They told me that Monistat 7 was the only thing that I could use. 15 minutes after inserting it it was uncomfortable and itched for about 5 minutes, but it wasn't anything I can't handle. I'm more concerned about how it will effect my baby than the burning. So far so good. I'm going to finish the 7 days because the slight itching is way better than the symptoms of the yeast infection.

 5  Yeast infection DO NOT LET THESE OTHER NEGATIVE POSTS SCARE YOU!!! After reading ALL the negative posts on here I was very reluctant to even try Monistat but it is so true that we are all different! I bought the Monistat 7 combination pack and had zero bad side effects! I'm done with the pack today and I'm back to normal! This worked wonders for me. Don't be afraid to at least try it especially if your symptoms are as bad as mine were (itching, burning). Also, do not try to rush it by getting the monistat one day or three day. Those may be too harsh! Everything takes time and 7 is best! Good luck to all you women out there & I hope you feel better soon! F 28 7 days

 5  Yeast infection This product was awesome !!!!! loved it don't let the negative reviews make you not buy it I almost did !!I'm only 5 days in and will countine the full 7 days and yes after the 2nd application everything cleared up as far as burning with the product goes I had NONE the first hour it was a little tingly but no where near burning i slept like a baby and have every night since but again everybody is different but since then everything is smooth i have not had one negative side effect the only thing I would say is wear a light liner at night beause the stuff does leak out but I was spotting because of birth control during this time so I had to use one anyway because it says not to use tampons the application is effort less its easy to use it can get messy but if u have your period every month this is nothing in comparison so I would buy this product again it was only 10$ at my local Walmart which isn't bad I got the simply cure version came with cream and 7 applicators pretty self explanatory however I did not go to the doctor for a diagnoses on the infection it's not only far for me but expensive as well i already owe them money and even tho I have a appointment a month from now for a check up i had no option to move it up and i wasnt about to wait a month the infection was making me uncomfortable so I bought the vagisil screening kit it test the ph level down there mine was 4.5 which is normal but it says if I was having symtoms of a yeast infection F 22 5 days

 1  Yeast infection On the first day I inserted the applicator and have the absolute worst burning and itching for hours. I also started to break out in cold sweats. The next morning I woke up sick to my stomach. I read reviews and found it somewhat normal so tried again the second day and it wasn't any better. I had to wash it out. Which even after washing it out it still burns. I'm not sure if I'm just allergic to it or what. But I will NOT be continuing the treatment. F 20 2 days

 5  Vaginal Yeast Infection I developed a yeast infection after taking metronidazole for a bacterial vaginitis.. My doctor prescribed diflucan but the yeast infection did not go away. Monistat 7 completely got rid of my yeast infection. It did leak out during the day and during those times is when I experienced some slight burning and discomfort. Once I wiped away what leaked out I felt better. The leaking stopped completely by the second day after my final treatment. I have tried monistat 1 before...that burns like FIRE and didn't get rid of the yeast infection. It actually made it worse!! Monistat 7 is the way to go...it may be a little messy and it takes a whole week but it is well worth it!!! F 34 7 days

 5  yeast infection Monistat 7 is an amazing over the counter product. I've only used it for 5 days and I seriously feel like the old me. It was uncomfortable at first, and hated the fact it was very messy ( wear a pad ). But other than that, nothing else. Go for it. F 17 5 days

 3  I'm a diabetic so I get YI ALOT!! Not even 2 minutes after putting it in I experienced the worse itch ever worse than the infection itself!! But I'm gonna keep trying it. I tried prescribed terconazole3 day suppositorys and it didn't help at all so I switched to Monistat 7. 20-30 mins after putting the cream in I felt some relief by applying a ice pack. The itch was so bad I was pacing the floor and crying! So yea from the pacing I pushed all the cream out. F 16 1 days

 4  yeast infection due to antibiotics So I started to use this stuff an the first night it didn't hurt at all, it just felt uncomfortable. So I took it again right now (day 2 out of 7) and all of a sudden my cooch had a terrible itch, then it burnt so badly on the outer walls I wanted to cry. I hoping its just killing the infection, but it does burn. So be prepared for it when it happens, an remember you already paid the 20 bucks to get the damn stuff, just keep taking it an trust that it works. F 16 7 days

 5  Yeast infection The first dose was horrible! Effect wise. As soon as I applied it I felt the worst burning and itching sensation. It lasted about 5 minutes. After that everything was okay. I'm on the 2nd dose and this time there wasn't much of an effect after applying it. Seems like it working. Hopefully it does. F 20 2 days

 3  Yeast Infection Normally when I have a yeast infection this stuff works fast. However, I am now into day 4 and my yeast infection is not completely gone. I suggest using the suppositories at night as to day where you would experience a lot of discharge which, by the way, is completely uncomfortable and feels gross. Days 2 and 3, I felt the burning sensation. I didn't want to stand or even urinate. I would suggest using Monistat 3 instead to get faster results. F 23 4 days

 3  yeast infection I'm not done with the seven day treatment, but for the past four days I experienced a REALLY annoying itch about 2-4 minutes after I injected the cream. However, the external cream relieved a lot of the itchy sensation on the outside...which took me about 5 minutes to work. I personally try not to think about it...it's so annoying. I read all the reviews and I really think it all depends how your body takes it..we're all different. F 16 4 days

 3  Yeast infection Extreme burning on the inside of my vagina immediately after using the applicator and inserted the oval pill. I also felt extreme heat in my inside. I chose to use the Monistat1 Day treatment Day or Night pack which came with the applicator, one white oval pill and 1 tube of cream to relieve the itching. The topical cream only caused a slight burning for a few minutes but nothing too bad. However, about 10 minutes after i used the applicator, I felt a burning that i had NEVER experienced before. It was sooo severe that i was trying to ice the area over my pj bottoms. I came upon this website just when i was starting to freak out and thank god for all the other comments. I feel very comforted to know that its NOT ME!! THe burning was horrendous for about 3 hrs and is now starting to subside. I still feel burning and heat but a lot less than a few hrs ago. From my experience, i can say that its probably better to lay down and sit up. You will definitely feel less burning lying down. I am pretty sure that the 3 Day and 7 Day will have less burning because they are less concentrated than the 1 day. But if you are like me and just want to treat it and move on, then you are going to have to stick it out!! I am feeling a little better so there is HOPE :-) F 30 1 days
