Can Monistat Cause A Yeast Infection

Can Monistat cause a yeast infections? Monistat can cause a yeast infection, and it can make a yeast infection worse if it is not used correctly.

How does Monistat cause a yeast infection

Women now cause more yeast infections than ever because Monistat is available over the counter, and it doesn’t require a prescription. This means more women now use this anti fungal cream without seeing their doctor first for a correct diagnosis.

If you use Monistat when you don’t have a yeast infection you cause the harmless Candida yeast in your vagina to mutate into a fungus. It’s this fungus that starts causing your symptoms. What’s bad about this type of yeast infection is it is resistant to Monistat so you can’t use it to treat the infection that has been created.

Once this happens you will need a more powerful anti fungal cream off of your doctor or an oral anti fungal drug. You can also use a natural yeast cure if you want to stay away from any more anti fungal drugs that have put you in the position you’re in if you’ve created a resistant yeast.

Making a yeast infection worse

Just like the example above, because anti fungal creams can easily be used without the guidance of a health care professional they get used incorrectly. What a lot of women do is stop using the treatment as soon as their symptoms disappear which is usually after a couple of days. The problem is, the infection is still their even thought the symptoms have disappeared.

When the infection returns it will be a more aggressive one, and it could be resistant to the Monistat.

Always see your doctor first

If you’re going to use an anti fungal drug for a vaginal infection it’s important you always see your doctor first. Your doctor will give you a correct diagnosis so you know exactly what infection you have, and your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to use the treatment. And it’s important to use the treatment for the full course even if your symptoms have disappeared.
