Top 3 Yeast Infection Treatments

 
Diflucan  

Yeast infections are common in some women. The infections are generally simple and easy to treat, and over the counter medications are now available. However, yeast infections can be difficult to self-diagnose, particularly if you have never had one before. If you are experiencing your first yeast infection or are not certain of your symptoms, it is important to see your doctor right away.

Although many women use over the counter vaginal treatments, some prefer oral medications. In addition, oral medication can be more effective against stubborn infections. Short or long term maintenance therapy with oral medicines may be recommended if you suffer from recurrent vaginal yeast infections.

One of the most common oral medications for yeast infections is Diflucan. This medication is commonly used in treating a variety of infections, and is safe and well-tolerated in many people. However, it is not right for everyone.

Diflucan can cause side effects, particularly in those who take certain medications or have particular underlying illnesses. Review your complete medical history and a list of your current medications with your doctor before beginning treatment. Diflucan interacts with over the counter and herbal medications as well as prescription drugs.

If you are taking Diflucan, it is important to limit or abstain from alcoholic beverages. The medication can cause dizziness, so avoid driving until you know how your body will react. Check with your doctor or pharmacist before adding any additional medications or remedies.

Diflucan is a popular treatment for yeast infections and other types of infection, but is not right for everyone. Only your doctor can help you decide whether it is the best choice for you.

 
Femstat  

Yeast infections are a common concern for many women. If you have had yeast infections before and are certain of your symptoms, you may be able to treat an infection at home. However, it can be difficult to recognize the symptoms, particularly for women who have never had a yeast infection before. Always visit your doctor if you are not positive that you have a yeast infection or if you have never had one before.

Femstat is an over the counter topical medication that is inserted into the vagina. It should be used daily according to package directions. The medication should be used for the full time directed even if your symptoms go away. Ending treatment early can result in a recurrence of the infection.

Side effects are not common, but could occasionally be serious. Tell your doctor right away if you have any unusual symptoms during or after treatment with Femstat. Do not use tampons or douches while you are undergoing treatment.

Femstat can negatively interact with a variety of prescription and over the counter medications. It should not be used by women who have certain medical conditions. Check with your doctor or pharmacist before beginning treatment to ensure that the medication is safe for you.

Femstat can weaken or damage latex birth control products including diaphragms and condoms. Use an alternative birth control method such as polyurethane condoms for three days after completing treatment.

Femstat is an excellent yeast infection medication for many women. However, it is not right for everyone. Check with your doctor before beginning treatment with this or any other medication.

 
Monistat  

Yeast infections are a common condition in many women. They are generally simple and easy to treat. However, it can be difficult to determine whether you have a yeast infection or another disorder. Therefore, you should see the doctor right away if you have never had a yeast infection or if you are not certain of your symptoms.

If you are positive that you have a yeast infection and you have had one before, you may be able to treat it at home without medical intervention. Monistat is a common over the counter medication for yeast infections.

Monistat (http://www.monistat.com/) is a topical medication that is inserted into the vagina. It can also be applied to the vulva if needed. The medication is available without a prescription, and is available in a choice of single-dose, three day or seven day treatment. Single-dose is the most convenient, but may not be sufficient to clear up a stubborn infection.

Monistat may cause side effects including headache, menstrual cramps and pain or burning in the vaginal area. If you experience persistent or severe side effects, tell your doctor right away. Monistat may interact with other medications and is not recommended for those with certain underlying medical conditions. Carefully read the package insert and contact your doctor if you have any doubts as to whether Monistat is right for you.

Monistat can weaken or damage latex birth control products including diaphragms and condoms. Be sure to use an alternate form of birth control such as polyurethane condoms for three days after completing treatment.

Monistat is a safe and effective yeast infection medication for many people. However, it is not right for everyone. Check with your doctor or pharmacist before using this or any medication.
