Yes IF:: 1, Be certain this IS a yeast infection. Bacterial vaginosis & some STD's can imitate yeast & fool you. Looking at discharge under microscope by provider helps OR doing DNA tests (sometimes called Affirm) 2. IF yeast infection, Monistat plus Diflucan is safe. Assuming here Diflucan dose approved by provider-dose is adjusted in kidney disease, avoid if liver problems, heart rhythm disorder
