How long does it take for a vaginal infection to clear with treatment?

I used a 3 day treatment. Today is day 4.

  • Sometimes it depends. I usually go for the 7 day treatment. I have never had luck with the one's that are any shorter than that. If it doesn't go away in a couple of days (or no improvement) I'd be calling your doctor

  • I usually use the 3 day treatment. After the first day, I see much improvement. If youre still not seeing it, then you might have an infection that the OTC stuff didnt cover. I had bacterial vaginosis once due to changing ph levels in pregnancy and I had to have rx cream. THe otc wouldnt work. Maybe call your gyn if you dont see improvement tomorrow. Good luck.
