My OB told me that i have a yeast infection because i have a very smelly discharge and it has a little blood.. She Recommended me to buy neo-penotran and insert it to my vagina before bedtime for a week..I just wonder if it really looks like a gel ointment when i opened it.. I was surprised because for all i know a suppository should be a solid transprent gel. I am having a hardtime putting it inside my vagina because its like an ointment.
Should i put it inside the refrigerator to harden it? pls help asap. thank you...
Did the medication come with any type of applicator? Some yeast infection medications come with an applicator that you put the medication into, and then you place the applicator into your vagina and insert it almost like you would a tampon.
If not, it may be slightly more complicated to put it in. Look on the package and see if there are any temperature guildlines (sometimes medication cannot be really cold or hot or it will become ineffective). If not, placing it in there may help a bit.
A homeade remedy to treat yeast infections is to use plain, sugarless yogurt. The live cultures help to even out the pH and sort things out. You can fill up an empty tampon applicator with it and put it in the freezer. It will fight the infection and feel cool and soothing when you do it.
If both these methods fail you and seem to be too tough, I would try buying another brand of medication that comes with an applicator or take oral medication to treat it. Your doctor can prescribe you the oral medication.
put it inside the refrigerator... it is supposed to be inserted hard... if its soft like an ointment, it would be very hard to insert the whole dosage.. remember to insert it in the vagina... not in the urethral meatus (where urine comes out)...
