Miconazole Nitrate Vaginal Cream USP (4%)
(Miconazole Nitrate 200 mg per applicator)
Why should I use Miconazole Nitrate Vaginal Cream USP (4%)?
Miconazole Nitrate Vaginal Cream USP contains 4% miconazole nitrate cream that cures most vaginal yeast infections. Do not use miconazole nitrate vaginal cream USP (4%) if this is the first time you have vaginal discharge, itching, burning and discomfort. See your doctor or health professional first to find out the cause of your symptoms. If a doctor has told you in the past that you had a vaginal yeast infection and you have the same symptoms now (such as vaginal discharge, itching or burning), the miconazole nitrate vaginal cream USP (4%) may work for you.
What is a vaginal yeast infection?
A vaginal yeast infection is a common condition caused by an overgrowth of yeast (Candida) that may normally live in the vagina. Your doctor may call this infection "monilia" or "candidiasis". Some women may have a yeast infection on the skin outside of the vagina (vulva) at the same time that they have a vaginal infection.
Who can get a vaginal yeast infection?
You can get a vaginal yeast infection at any age. It is most common during the childbearing years. Women who are pregnant or diabetic, taking antibiotics, birth control pills or steroids, or who have a weakened immune system are more likely to get repeated yeast infections that may not clear up easily with proper treatment.
Some medical conditions can weaken the body's normal ability to fight infection. One of the most serious of these conditions is infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV – the virus that causes AIDS). The HIV virus causes the body to be more likely to get infections, including vaginal yeast infections that may not clear up easily with proper treatment. If you may have been exposed to HIV and get repeated vaginal yeast infections, you should see your doctor right away. For more information on HIV infection, please contact your doctor or the CDC National AIDS HOTLINE. The CDC phone number is: 1-800-232-4636 (English and Spanish), or 1-888-232-6348 (hearing impaired, TDD).
How can I tell if I have a vaginal yeast infection?
When you have a vaginal yeast infection, you may have one or more of the following symptoms:
Note: Vaginal yeast infections do NOT cause fever, chills, lower abdominal, back or shoulder pain, foul-smelling vaginal discharge, or a missed period. These may be signs of a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or a tubal pregnancy.
If you have these symptoms, call your doctor right away.
What are other causes of a vaginal discharge?
It is normal to have a small amount of vaginal discharge at certain times of the month. This normal discharge may be clear or slightly white and does not cause itching, pain or a foul odor.
The most common cause of an abnormal vaginal discharge is an infection. These infections include bacterial vaginosis (BV), trichomoniasis (Trich), gonorrhea (GC) and/or chlamydia. All of these may be transmitted sexually and are called sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). If you have more questions about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) call the CDC STD Hotline at 1-800-232-4636.
Although many of the infections mentioned above can cause symptoms similar to a vaginal yeast infection (vaginal discharge, irritation and itching), their diagnosis must be made by a doctor so that proper treatment can be given.
If these infections are not properly treated or if proper treatment is delayed, serious problems, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) may result, which may prevent you from having children in the future. If you are pregnant and do not get the proper treatment, the infection may be passed to your baby before or during delivery and may cause your baby to have permanent damage. If you have multiple sex partners or a new sex partner, you should also ask a doctor before use to make sure you do not have an STD.
Why do women get repeated vaginal yeast infections?
Women may get repeated vaginal yeast infections that may not clear up easily with proper treatment. Listed below are some of the causes of repeated yeast infections:
If you get vaginal yeast infections often (such as once a month or 3 in 6 months), you should talk to a doctor.
Are vaginal yeast infections sexually transmitted?
Vaginal yeast infections are usually not spread by having intercourse (sex). However, if your partner has a rash, itching or discomfort in his genital area, he should contact a doctor to find out the cause of his symptoms and tell the doctor that you are treating your vaginal yeast infection with miconazole nitrate vaginal cream USP (4%).

Directions for using the Vaginal Cream:
Begin treatment before going to bed:
1 To open the tube, unscrew the cap. The first time the tube is opened, press the sharp point of the cap into the sealed end of the tube. Push down firmly until the seal is broken. (See pictures.)
2 Attach the applicator to the tube of cream by placing "A" end of the applicator firmly onto tube of cream.
3 Gently squeeze the cream into the applicator, continue squeezing until applicator is full. Separate the applicator from the tube. DO NOT release pressure on the tube until you have separated it from the filled applicator. After each use, replace the cap and roll up the tube from the bottom.
4 Hold the barrel as shown in the picture.
5 Gently insert the applicator into the vagina as far as it will go comfortably. This can be done while lying on your back with your knees bent (as shown in the picture), or while standing with your feet apart and your knees bent.
6 With one hand holding the barrel, use the other hand to push the plunger all the way in to place the cream as far back in the vagina as possible. Then remove both parts of the applicator from the vagina.
7 Throw away applicator after use. Do not flush in toilet.
8 Lie down as soon as possible after inserting the cream. This will reduce leakage.
9 Repeat steps 2 through 8 with a new applicator before going to bed for the next 2 days.
You may want to use deodorant-free pads or pantyshields to protect your clothing during the time that you are using miconazole nitrate vaginal cream USP (4%). This is because the cream can leak or you may get some discharge. Do not use tampons, douches, spermicides, condoms, or diaphragms until after you have completed the treatment and your symptoms are gone.
