When I was younger I got uti quite frequently and could feel them coming on and I would start taking double the amount of azo cranberry pills long with black cherry juice and that usually would wipe it out.

Call your doctor. And get antibotics for it.

so lucky me, I've got a yeast infection. I have never had one before so I went into the doctor to see what I should do to treat it and they said using the 7 day Monistat cream is safe to use. I'm on day 4 of the treatment and I'm wondering how long the symptoms are supposed to last? I'm super uncomfortable still. Anyone ever had a yeast infection even pregnant? How long did your symptoms last?

Now i know its normal to get yeast infection after or during antibiotics, i got one last month in january and decided i would get a monostat after the antibiotics and i did then right after the monostat treatment i was on a new set of antibiotics and the yeast infection is back.

or what i am assuming is a yeast infection. I've had it since wednesday and I still have it and it is only getting worse. It's Sunday. I've tried using Vagisil, Candida Yeast symptom relief pills, anti-itch cream, neosporin, and drank cranberry juice. NOTHING is helping. It hurts so bad i can barely move at this point. My mom said the doctor isn't going to be able to help any more other than confirm it's a yeast infection.

I plan on continuing this for awhile, and maybe later begin regularily drinking no-sugar added cranberry juice regularily to keep my bladder in check. I am waiting on the juice,however, because I want the "good" bacteria to have a chance to do its job. I really hope this continues to work, and hope this helps others.
It doesn't necessarily have to smell and can be treated with yogurt and cranberry juice..
If it's really a bacterial infection and not a yeast infection, then the meds won't cure the infection. Give the meds that u used a couple days to work. Usually you won't see complete relief the night after using the meds. If your symptoms persist, you're gonna have to get a prescription from the doc to get rid of the infection. Because of the holidays coming up next week, maybe you should call today to get an appt just in case.
You don't take antibiotics for thrush - they are what often causes thrush in the first place and lead to a candida overgrowth (although you're right about getting your partner treated as he could have it and be spreading it - but there are special thrush medications for that), and cranberry juice is not particularly helpful for thrush, only UTIs (and only unsweetened).

I would go in and see your doctor to have them test you to see if you have a urinary tract infection. Since it is Friday. If you are not diabetic you can drink a lot of cranberry juice and water and see if you feel better by Monday. If you don't go into the doctor. For the spots on the external vagina I wouldn't put anything on them and leave them alone. Don't scratch them or anything. See if they go away on their own.
