Add a Comment2 Comments

I've had a yeast infection for a while I've used it 3 or 4 creams and suppositories and it keeps coming back. I think it's because of my boyfriend he doesn't brush his teeth are washers and people to bed

Can you tell us more about your situation, so I can provide more tailored information?

Yeast infections are common, but "a lot" may indicate another problem that needs to be medically evaluated. I am not sure if you are "self-diagnosing" and using OTC medications, but if this is the case, you would need to make an appointment with your doctor to a) rule out other infections, or b) receive another type of medication that will be effective.

Some women think they have yeast infections, but what they actually have is another infection with similar symptoms: which can include bacterial vaginosis or trichomoniasis.

Recurring vaginal infections need to be medically evaluated by your doctor, and s/he will want to know more information about the "triggers" and specifically how much "a lot" is. Many women will get a yeast infection after sex, or when they are stressed out, pregnant, or other factors..all of these can be remedied based on the "cause".

Let us know how you are doing!
