  • Girl, you will know. If there is nothing you can do to ease the itching and burning feeling down there, you have a yeast infection. Or, as my best friend once said, "If you feel like you want to take the seat off of a bicycle and sit down, you have a yeast infection"!! LOL!~ Gross I know. Anyway, there are two types on the market. Monistant contains Miconazole, this can take 3-7 days to cure. Or the one dose package that contains Tioconazole, this is stronger and usually works faster. Your other choice is to call your Dr. and have him prescribe you a one time pill called Diflucan.
