Yeast : I'm so sorry you been suffering with these infections for so long. There are approaches to women with chronic east infection. One is extended administration of diflucan (fluconazole). Another idea is the use of boric acid or gentian violet. Sometimes an elimination diet is helpful. A great book is the v book. Definitely see a specialist in gynecology who can help you with this.
