When to See Your Doctor

Sometimes, during the course of treating a yeast infection, it is necessary to contact your doctor. Be sure to talk to your doctor if:

  • This is your first vaginal yeast infection
  • You experience frequently recurring infections, abdominal pain, fever, foul-smelling or greenish-grayish vaginal discharges (as these may be symptoms of another type of infection)
  • There has been no improvement in your symptoms within 3 days of starting treatment or if symptoms last more than 7 days or return within 2 months
  • You develop a skin rash, hives, abdominal cramps, or new irritation
  • You are taking an oral anticoagulant (blood thinning medication) such as warfarin
  • You are pregnant or think you may be or if you are breastfeeding
