Frequent Sufferer

"No way am I going to let a yeast infection get me down.”
“Once the itching and discharge started, I knew what I had, and I knew what to do to get rid of it. No doubt, frequent yeast infections are frustrating. But I'm active and I'm healthy and I'm not going to let it get me down. So I talked to my doctor about whether I can just reach for MONISTAT® and get on with my life. You know what I mean?”
— Carey, 34
You're not alone.

But if you get frequent yeast infections (such as once a month or 3 in 6 months), you should go to your doctor to see if they're being caused by another more serious health problem, like diabetes or a weakened immune system. There are some questions below about frequent yeast infections to help you start the conversation.

The fact that you're here means you're among the women who have frequent yeast infections. A yeast infection (candidiasis) is caused by an overgrowth of yeast that normally lives in the vagina. You're already familiar with the symptoms. And if you've tried external vaginal pain relievers you also know that while it relieves the symptoms associated with a yeast infection, it does NOT cure the infection. MONISTAT® vaginal antifungal does.
