Can yeast infections really be cured in just one day with a pill? The answer is the names of many over the counter yeast infection pills are designed to deceive. If you read the fine print on the inserts inside these products they state that their medications probably will not work in just one day. Many days are always required by any “one day” treatment. It is just an advertisement rue; just like Federal Express’ name can lead some people to think it is controlled by the government when it is not.
Skeptical that this could be true? Keep reading and we will discuss several one day yeast infection pills and show what their respected manufacturers actually say about the actual time frame.
12 Hour Yeast Infection Cure
Before we begin, you may be interested in one woman who actually tells you how to naturally cure a yeast infection in only 12 hours. There is a whole section on this site about Linda Allen, the woman who developed a 12 hour cure. If you're interested in learning more about this safe natural remedy, you can read: Linda Allen Yeast Infection No More.
Monistat 1 Day Candida Pill
Honesty should be considered lacking by the makers of Monistat 1 Day. The product explicitly states that most yeast infections will not be cured in just one day using their product. Most women probably do not take the time to thoroughly read the disclaimer offered by Monistat. The package makes it known that you can expect to be cured in 7 days and find “some” relief after 3 days of using the product. The fine print from Monistat’s website reads as follows:
While MONISTAT® 1 products offer the most time-convenient yeast infection treatment course, most women do not experience relief from the infection in just one day. If you do not feel some relief within 3 days, or complete relief within 7 days, stop using the product and consult your doctor.http://www.monistat.com/vaginal-health-products/yeast-infection-treatment/monistat-1
Additionally some women complain that Monistat 1 Day is so strong that it causes great vaginal irritation. This is one of the symptoms that the active ingredient in monistat, miconazole, can cause.
Equate 1 Day Yeast Infection Pill
Walmart’s Equate brand also offers a “one day” yeast infection pill. This pill utilizes a different azole drug: tioconazole. But, if you look at Walmart’s product page they state in plain English that although their product’s name says “1 Day” most women will not get relief from their infection in just one day. In fact, it will take a full 7 days before you can hope to be cured for sure.
Walmart’s website answered the question on the product page as follows:
When can you expect symptom relief?http://www.walmart.com/ip/10324779
While this product is a 1-dose treatment, most women do not experience complete relief of their symptoms in just one day. Most women experience some improvement within one day and complete relief of symptoms within 7 days.
Walgreens One Day Yeast Pills
The story is the same here at Walgreens as well. Their product is called Tioconazole 1. A little reading and you find they say the same thing as Monistat and Walmart do about their product. The fact is this product, according to Walgreens, will probably not cure a yeast infection in just one day. You’ll have to wait about 7 days before you will be symptom free. The Walgreen’s website had this to say about their supposed “one day” cure:
This product is a 1-dose treatment, most women do not experience complete relief of their symptoms in just one day. Most women experience some relief within one day and complete relief of symptoms within 7 daysWalgreen’s product page
The Cold Truth
As you can see there is a lot of deceptive advertising going on with these types of products. They all use the number one or say “one day” on them; however, none of these over the counter products deliver relief in just one day. No, you will have to deal with this stuff inside you for about a week before you get better. Additionally, you may have to deal with the hazardous side effects some people experience when they take these drugs.
