Yeast infections are an inconvenience in many ways. First there are the symptoms and then there is the unpleasant treatment. The treatment is usually very messy and worst of all, you typically have 7 days worth of treatment. That means 7 days of having clumps of cream coming out of you. Monistat attempts to put an end to this with their 1 day ovule. All you have to do is put small egg looking thing, which they call an ovule, into the applicator. Then lie on your back or squat standing up and insert one. That’s it. Just one time. Granted, it may still take a week for the yeast infection to completely clear up, but you only have to do it one time. The ovule itself, is a great idea, it’s much less messy. You don’t have to fumble with inserting tubes of cream into the applicator. Also, it feels better to have the tiny ovule inserted as apposed to a couple of inches worth of cream.
I very much wanted to like Monistat 1 Day Ovule. If only treating my yeast infections could be that simple. I inserted the ovule in the evening before bed. I woke up a few hours later from an intense burning sensation. I went to the bathroom and grabbed a hand held mirror to take a peak at what was going on down there. My entire vulva area was swollen. My clitoris was so swollen it was sticking out well beyond the lips of my vagina. I freaked out. I was in so much pain I first ran cool water over it and then resulted to using a towel wrapped in ice. I didn’t go to work the next day because it hurt too bad to put underwear or pants on and it was still incredibly swollen. Sitting in a chair was even uncomfortable. It also burned and itched like crazy. After about a day, I decided to go for a natural treatment of yogurt. That seemed to calm things down.
I’m not the only one who has had an experience like this using the 1 day ovule. My gynecologist told me some people just can’t handle the high dose of medicine and therefore it produces an allergic reaction. I’ve read several reviews online from people who experienced the exact same reaction to Monistat 1 Day Ovule as I did. I have also read a couple of reviews from people who loved it and had no reaction to it. The only problem is, there is no way to know whether or not your vagina can handle it unless you try it. If you have ever had any kind of reaction before from using products in or around your vagina, I would steer clear of this product. I’m OK using the 7 day Monistat treatment and even the 3 day Monistat treatment with no signs of irritation. If you are one of the lucky ones who can do the one day treatment, it can be purchased at drugstores, grocery stores, super stores, and online. It is a little more expensive than the 3 or 7 day treatments. It costs between $16 and $18.
