Inserting the glenmark clotrimazole suppository

Hi. I went to the clinic for an infection and they gave me glenmark clotrimazole - 1 vaginal tablet. So I did use it yesterday night but today in the morning it came back out like a discharge; it was indeed the tablet that came out like a liquid. So I want to know if it's normal or if I didn't administer it properly? ## Hello, Zinlhe! How are you? Sorry about the infection.

Taking Klion D, but my period started

What should you do if you are on Klion D 100 and you get your period? ## I would like to know if it is safe to use klion D during a menstrual period? ## Should I continue taking Klion D during my period? ## According to PubChem, Klion-D contains "Metronidazole mixture with Miconazole". This is used to treat vaginal yeast / fungal infections. Speaking from my wife's experience, she was on a treatment of Monistat 7 (Miconazole) during her menstrual cycle before, and she said that instead of taking the regular 7 day course, she had to take it for 10 days to help. I'd double check with your doctor to ensure that it is okay for you to do, but I just wanted to share what my wife said worked for her. I hope this helps.
