Monistat and yeast infections

I think I may have a yeast infection.Its itchy down there and theres a strong odor. My discharge is white  and a little clumpy. Do Over the counter products like monistat and such actually work? how do they work?

Sounds like a yeast infection.  Monistat is the first thing I'd reach for.  I would try Monistat 3 or Monistat 7.  Friends and I have not had luck with the one-dose, for whatever reason.

That being said, if you get yeast infections often and use Monistat, you might be 'immune' to that option.  At that point I'd say go to the dr., get it checked out, and get a Diflucan, which is available only through prescription as you probably know.

With Monistat:  you put it in at bedtime... there are pre-filled applicators.

If you aren't sure of what you have,  I would recommend seeing a doctor.  There are a lot of things that cause the same symptoms of a yeast infection.  If it isn't yeast, and you treat it like it is, you may make matters worse.

Itchy, white and clumpy discharge sounds like a yeast infection. However, there's usually no odor, or a yeasty odor... "strong" odor makes me think there might be something else going on. I agree I'd see your doctor to be sure, particularly if you haven't had a yeast infection before.

I have something similar. It started a few days ago after having sex with my boyfriend. we are both eachothers first and only so I know there is no disease or infection. Its like white with a tint of yellow and thick. It is occasionally itchy, but only at my clit. Im thinking its either discharge or a mild yeast infection. I havent really noticed any smell because I have a shower daily and have been keeping it very clean since I noticed it appearing. what do you suggest?
