WHAT IS A VAGINAL YEAST INFECTION?
A yeast infection is a common type of vaginal infection occurring in 3 out of 4 women during their childbearing years.  often referred to as candidiasis by your doctor.  This condition is caused by a type of yeast, Candida, which is commonly present  in healthy women.  In a healthy vagina, there is a balance of several basic "components" that work together including bacteria, yeast, hormones and glycogen and natural secretions.  Some times  conditions allow these yeast grow very quickly and result in a vaginal infection.  A yeast infection can occur at any age, but most commonly occurs in women of childbearing age very commonly in those who  are taking antibiotics or  steroids or a weakened immune system.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF A VAGINAL YEAST INFECTION?
A vaginal yeast infection often presents with symptoms of vaginal itching, irritation, burning during  urination or sex and a vaginal discharge sometimes appearing like clumpy cottage cheese.
WHO QUALIFIES FOR AN ONLINE DIFLUCAN CONSULTATION?
If you have previously been diagnosed with a vaginal yeast infections, candidiasis, and you now have similar symptoms you can "Kiss Your Creams" good-bye and treat your vaginal yeast infection with ONE 150mg Diflucan dose. Medical Wellness Center's Online consultation provides you a simple, safe and convenient way to get a Diflucan prescription called into your local pharmacy within 24 hours.   If you are experiencing a fever higher than 100 degrees F, abdominal or back pain or have a foul-smelling discharge  or have never previously been diagnosed with a vaginal yeast infection, then you do NOT qualify for an online consultation and need to seek immediate medical attention from your physician or healthier provider.  Although a large percentage of women know the symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection, about 1 in 5 women when visiting their doctor learn that their condition was not a yeast infection
WHAT IS DIFLUCAN & HOW DOES IT WORK?
DIFLUCAN(fluconazole) is the FIRST & ONLY oral medication approved for the treatment of vaginal yeast infections due to Candida.   Diflucan is the first of a new subclass of synthetic triazole antifungal agents and it works by selectively inhibiting a metabolic function is yeast cells.  Unlike topical vaginal creams, Diflucan is an oral tablet taken only once any time of day or night. 
WILL DIFLUCAN WORK FOR ME & WHAT ARE THE INDICATIONS? 
Diflucan is the first of its kind ORAL treatment for vaginal yeast infections due to Candida.   If you have ever been diagnosed by a physician with a vaginal yeast infection and are suffering similar symptoms Diflucan may work for you.    Diflucan, like vaginal creams and topical medication, only works against vaginal yeast infections due to Candida and will not work against other forms of vaginal infections that could mimic the symptoms of a yeast infection.  This is why it's important that you have previously seen a doctor and have been diagnosed with Candida vaginal yeast infections in the past.
HOW OFTEN DO I HAVE TO TAKE DIFLUCAN & HOW LONG BEFORE I EXPERIENCE RELIEF?
Diflucan is taken as a one time single dose of a 150-mg Diflucan tablet.  It begins working as soon as you take the dose and continues to work over the next several days.  Within 24 hours you will start to notice relief of your symptoms, for some women it may take longer than 24 hours for symptom relief to begin.  Clinical studies have shown that approximately 80% of patients experience clinical cure.  If you do not experience an improvement within 3  -  5 days you need to seek immediate medical attention from your health-care provider.
WHEN DO I TAKE DIFLUCAN?
 Diflucan oral tablet should be taken as soon as you can after experiencing the symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection to get the fastest possible relief from your symptoms and the earliest cure.  The tablet is taken by mouth and swallowed and can be taken any time of day, with or without food.  Medical Wellness Center Express Service allows you to pick up your Diflucan prescription at any local pharmacy of your choice within approximately 24 hours.
