I am having yeast infections every few weeks. I have used over the courter meds and prescription oral meds. I have been to the doctor many times due to this. I have also been treated for BV about 4 months ago. I am seriously going crazy! What could be causing this? What else is there to do?!?
Some women are overly-prone to vaginal yeast. I have no way of delving into your medical history in order to find a reason (or reasons) for your recurrences or review your past treatment regimes, but I do believe this problem can be solved by the right combination of medications and some extra care with sexual hygiene. Your partner could be re-introducing the yeast, or your specific sexual practices could be suspect. Your medical provider should make sure that you do not have any underlying health issues, such as diabetes, that could be contributory.
