Hello,I am wondering if I should just stop taking Flagyl and treat the yeast infection, but I already took a dose of Flagyl.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Josh, Doctor replied 9 months ago

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The discharge can be due to BV or the yeast infection.

For confirmation,you can take a home test:

http://www.monistat.com/vaginal-health-products/complete-care/vaginal-health-test

Following is recommended if yeast infection is confirmed:

· Apply ointment monistat vaginal cream.It is a broad spectrum anti-fungal agent.It is available as over the counter without prescription & will help you greatly.

· Probiotics are one of the most important parts of a Candida albicans/yeast infection cure..There are many brands of probiotics easily available as over the counter at your pharmacy.

If yeast infection is confirmed,you can stop taking flagyl further.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
