I have been taking Monistat 7 for the past 7 days - adult content

But I am still itchy. What do I do now? All the little tablets are gone, but I still have the itch relief cream leftover, should I continue with that, in hopes of it getting better? Can I go buy more tablets? Or do I have to wait to start again? And Also, When I put them inside of me, whenever I coughed, they popped out, is that normal? I kept having to push them back inside me with my finger. It's the first time I had ever used Monistat 7 before.

    A: When using Monistat® as instructed, your symptoms should improve in 3 days and you should be completely cured in 7 days. On average, most women should experience some improvement within three days and complete relief within seven days. This is the same, whether you use a 1- dose product, 3-day product or a 7-day product. We recommend that you contact your doctor if your symptoms do not improve in 3 days or if you still have symptoms after 7 days. Your doctor is the best source of advice in this matter, as she/he knows your health circumstances and history, and can best guide you in this regard.

  • Hi, I know how uncomfortable a yeast infection can be (I've gotten them a few times after being on antibiotics), but I didn't know the answer to your question for sure, so I looked it up on the monistat home page. Here's what I found:

    Q: I am currently on Monistat 7 (it is my first day of treatment) and I was just wondering if when taking a shower I should use any special kind of soap or what I shouldn't use while washing myself. I used Monistat 7 last night for the first time and haven't felt any relief of burning or itching. How long does it usually take to feel better?
