At the beginning of last week I was prescribed treatments for my yeast infection by my gyno. Unfortunately, my gyno then ran out of the room before I could even ask her any questions regarding what I should do post-treatment.
Yeah, I hate my gyno.
So now I'm a week done with my treatment (antifungal cream and diflucan pill) and almost all of the symptoms seem to be gone except for an itch every so often. Problem is I just got my period and the first thing I did was reach for my tampons but now I'm wondering if that's okay to do? Can I safely use tampons this soon after having a yeast infection?
I'm really hoping the answer is yes, because I can't stand the feel of pads.
Also, does anyone know how long it typically takes a yeast infection to clear up and how long you should wait before resuming sexual activity of any kind? This is my first ever yeast infection, and I'm clueless.
