Yes but: 1 would not because you do not need both.

Yeast infection: Bear in mind that yeast infections can be transmitted back and forth between sexual partners and your partner may need to be treated also. Your age isn't stated, but It is a fact that oral fluconazole alone may not be effective in older women who have a tendency toward vaginal dryness.
