So I'm about to finish my last dose of Monistat 3 to treat my first yeast infection (on a side note: thank god for monistat. Yeast infections are miserable!). Anyway, there's been a little bleeding with the treatment which I'm pretty sure is my period since it's the right time and they say many infections occur right before your period because of hormonal changes. The problem is that I was recently prescribed birth control to help with my skin. I'm supposed to start the Sunday after my period but I'm a little worried to start so soon after the infection ESPECIALLY since I now know that birth control can cause yeast infections. Is it safe to start next Sunday or is it too soon after the infection? It would be a week after my last dose of monistat.
