Question: used monistat1 3 days ago. Now I'm bleeding is this normal?

Hello, I'm worried about what it is....i have been diagnosed with a yeast infection before so this time around when I started getting irritated down there I figured I would just buy the over the counter medicine myself without having to go to the doctors. Low and behold it's been 3 days since I inserted the ovule and it was fine I didn't feel discomfort of any kind until yesterday I noticed light pink spotting. Today though it's more like a regular period I'm having light cramping as well. Is this something to worry about? Should I just go visit doctor anyway?

User avatar Hello,
Bleeding can be a symptom in yeast infections. I would wait it out and see if it resolves. If not, you should see your practitioner.

Best wishes.
