Resistant yeast: Up to 10% of vaginal yeast infections are caused by Candida glabrata, rather than the usual C. albicans, and some glabrata strains are resistant to all the "azole" drugs. You might try fluconazole once again, but if also ineffective, speak with your doctor about a prescription for alternate treatment, e.g. caspofungin, flucyctosine, or nystatin. Good luck!
