how to know when a yeast infection is gone
i have a yeast infection since last week, went to see the doctor and he prescribed me diflcuan and tera terconazole cream for 7days. i am using it, but since this is my first yeast infection i don\t know when it is done. i also just started my period this morning. i inserted the cream like normal  and iget blood and some cream on the pad, but i dont see any more white thick discharge. does that mean the yeast infection is gone i still have some itchy burning on the side of my vulva and tip of vagina when the pad touches but i hope that means its going away

Hello,
I would use the meds the doc gave you till the end.  If you are not seeing anymore thick white discharge, that's a good sign already.  You may be facing the tail end of it if you still have some itching though.  Did you plan on following back up with your doctor?  All in all it sounds like the meds are working to treat it.  Good luck :)

Hi,

Treatments for yeast infections tend to start clearing up your symptoms within a couple of days, however, even if you are feeling better you should still carry on using the creams for the full 7 days to ensure it has worked completely... if you finish the treatment too soon there is a chance of the yeast multiplying again.

Hope this helps.

Regards, Dee.
