Question: Yeast infection

 hnmstarr - Wed Jun 29, 2005 1:45 pm

My question is this~ Is it alright to go swimming if I have a yeast infections? I took the 1-Monistat on Monday night and was feeling pretty bad all day yesterday, but today feeling about 80% better. So if I go swimming will it delay my recovery?
