Monistat for 1, 3, or 7 days, is it all the Same?

Which cure is faster? Neither! The cure rates are virtually the same. The dosing is set up so that the one day treatment only requires a day to take medication, but it requires several days (while the medication is lasting in your system) for the infection to resolve. Symptomatically, women resolve very quickly with these effective topical medications, often the symptoms are gone in one to two days. But use the whole package for effective complete 'cure' (read comments about cures). So what's a woman to get, if you are really sure, and you have made an accurate diagnosis, then, relax, save money, go for the least expensive! Since the cure rates are so similar, its a great first line of defense against infection, but in tern be pocketbook wise! Gyno Gal is a great shopper as well!


  1. I’m working with the Monistat® Brand to address common misconceptions about curing yeast infections. In response to your question above, I want to share this video featuring Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz, an OB/GYN, which we hope you’ll find helpful:

  2. Nice video! And such a good name for a gyno, Suzanne! Monistat is an excellent treatment, and can treat typical yeast infections quickly and effectively, as the video enforces. And when women have symptoms they may want to see their physician as the gyno discusses. But of course we do know the topic might just be a bit more complex than either the video or my quick post discusses, and hopefully neither will be completely taken out of context to further any misconceptions! I do try to emphasize now and then when talking about yeast infections "cure" is a relative term. There is symptomatic cure, and microbiologic cure, and it is not common that women are completely, cleared of yeast as soon as the symptoms are soothed away. In fact, many are not. But alas, cultures can be confusing, and wrong much of the time as well! But great video, and hope you visit my site often!

  3. Agreed, thanks Dr. Suzanne! The information and video link posted above has been provided for informational purposes and is not meant to substitute for the advice provided by your own physician or medical professional.
