Candida glabrata can be resistent to fluconazole and may need other antifungals or supressive regimen. CDC suggests 600 mg boric acid in a gelatin capsule vaginally daily for 3 weeks. Would discuss this with a gyn. https://www.healthline.com/health/candida-glabrata https://www.cdc.gov/std/treatment-guidelines/candidiasis.htm
