Spotting after yeast infection treatment
Two days ago, I started getting some vaginal itching and burning. I've been diagnosed with a yeast infection by the gyno once before, and I am very low risk for STI being that my husband of three years is the only man with whom I've ever been intimate. I used an OTC pH test, which said my vaginal pH was normal, 4.5, so I assumed it was a yeast infection. I used Monistat 1 (which burned horribly!), and it provided little relief. Yesterday I tried plain organic yogurt. I filled an empty tampon applicator with yogurt in a pastry bag (like a very small cannoli), and inserted it before bedtime. I woke up this morning, and I have a little spotting. My period shouldn't start for another week and I'm worried that the bleeding signals something other than YI. The itching/burning feeling has improved some, but not totally gone. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
