i am 33 and on HBC. i had symptoms of a yeast infection for a week (no discharge, but itchy, painful intercourse, painful urination, sore to touch). the day before my period usually comes, i took monistat 1 at night. when i inserted the ovule i noticed blood. when i woke up in the morning there was some discharge (blood and medicine mixed together). i assumed this was the beginning of my period.
now two days later, i haven't had practically any menstruation blood and i am still sore and it hurts the urinate still. usually i use the diva cup and my period only lasts 3 days. now what is coming out on the pad is dried blood (crusty and dark). i don't understand how the monistat interfered with my period.
Q: do i need to visit a doctor or will the pain eventually go away? should i be concerned that my menstruation stopped?
(side note: no access to tub to try vinegar bath. i am taking homeopathic medicine and probiotics).
