My husband and I had anal sex and accidentally went back into the vagina for just a moment. Now I have an infection and want to know if I can try to treat it without going to the Doctor.

Hello,
What kind of infection are you experiencing - usually this is an E. coli infection - and more of a problem with a urinary tract infection vice a vaginal infection.

If you have further questions please ask - also, this is not really a concern for a vaginal infection but you should clean yourself up. But, if you get a urinary tract infection, then Macrobid should be used.

I thought it may be a yeast infection but was worried because we have not had anal sex in about 5 yrs. Its not a UTI. This happened last Saturday night and I have just started taking Monistat 3. I do not have yeast infections often and this one seems alittle worse than in the past.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Owen, OB/GYN (Doctor) replied 8 years ago
Hello,
Unlikely to be a yeast infection from anal to vaginal sex - you do not get yeast infections that way - describe to me your symptoms in detail.

Swollen, itchy, and red.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Owen, OB/GYN (Doctor) replied 8 years ago
Hello,
This does sound like a possible yeast infection, but probably coincidental, not really from the anal to vaginal sex.
You can try Monistat (miconazole) or Vagistat (tioconazole) - but you might need a prescription product if this does not improve in a week - so you might need Diflucan or Terazol.

I should just continue to use the Monistat 3 and see if that works?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Owen, OB/GYN (Doctor) replied 8 years ago
you should continue to use for a week and if no improvement after a week, then you should contact your ob/gyn.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
