Needs testing: If you have been treating yeast with a variety of agents and the yeast is still there then evaluation is needed. Either you have a resistant yeast (rare) and your doctor will need more thorough testing to get rid of it. Or you do not have yeast and in fact have something else (common) schedule witha gyn for evaluation.
