Very unusual: The probiotic in yogurt may reduce yeast infection instead of inducing it. Since no itching was described at the vaginal area, an allergic reaction is less likely. Since the mechanism is unknown, the only way to find out is to try the frozen yogurt out and having a Rx for Fluconazole in hand in case you have another yeast infection. See GYN if problem continues.
