Sorry, I don't have much advice for you. I've never had a yeast infection. I hope everything turns out okay for you.

There are over the counter medications that work much better, and if you can't find them near where you live they are probably available online. Look for Monistat (that is a popular brand)

well..the matter is not the medication..as i said i am taking the medication..the matter is that it comes again and again..after medication i am clean (according to microbiological tests) but in few while it is back again..i think it has to do with my defense..the yogurt was really helpful but it didn't solved it totally..i want to know if someone else has the same problem with me..and how she deals with that..

So what's going on with you? Are you on antibiotics, birth control, steroids, or anything? Do you have any diseses? Are you using antibacterial soap/nylon underwear, thongs, scented toilet paper, soaps, etc.? Do you douche?

All of these are causes of recurring yeast infections.

I became crazy with cleaning matters..i sterilize almost everything..

Well, yes, you can give it to a man, and he can give it back to you. Men can carry yeast infections and not show signs of it. Maybe have a doctor test him?

What do you mean you didn't have results? Did they test your yeast infections? And they found you didn't have any?

Sometimes the treatments for yeast infections can cause bacterial infections, and treatments for bacterial infections can cause yeast infections. That's something to talk to your doctor about.

sometime is might not even be a yeast infection. I was treated over and over again for one and finally my doctor told me it was all in my head. I went to female doctor and she ask me if they ever checked my sugar( that is a cause of reacurring yeast infections).. Sugar was fine so they did a pap and she found pre cancerous cells on my cervix. I had them frooze off and no more yeast infections..
Stupid Doctor, "all in my head" RIGHT..
My point is. I'm not saying you have pre-cancerous cells, but it might not be yeast infection.. Make them so other test until they know what it is!!

Right- underlying conditions can cause recurring yeast infections. I would find a doc and keep pushing for them to figure it out.

Well, only twice isn't exactly recurring... but anyway

some women get yeast infections in relation to their period or at a certain time in your schedule. Does that seem likely to you? Because if that's the case, you can track when you get infections during the cycle and just be prepared with some over the counter monistat or something during that time.

But if nothing is working and it keeps coming back, I'd just go to a different doctor. That stinks, though.
