UPDATE: My dr contacted me back and said I’m ok to use a regular cream for yeast infection. Others may get a different answer.

Nothing in the vagina for at least six weeks. Wait for your doc to call back.
That's awesome. Maybe it's because the initial tissue is healed but the deeper tissue isn't?

Maybe that's why? Either way, sorry if you don't like the cream!
@A MyEndometriosisTeam Member You're a GENIUS. Diflucan IS available as otc in Canada! Next time I go, I'm buying some!
Since I live near Detroit, MI, Canada is like an hour or hour and half and I used to go there and buy my daughter's formula (when she was a baby obviously) bc the cost of that was insanely cheaper! I found that out by accident when we were there for a day and ran out.
