Probiotics: Probiotics are a good, natural supplement to aid your body's immune system during this time. Other "supplements" that have beneficial properties to help avoid yeast infections include yogurt and buttermilk, both of which help to restore healthy bacteria into the body to replace the natural flora killed by cipro (ciprofloxacin).
