Perhaps: Fluconazole (diflucan) may help to eradicate candida (yeast) from your vagina, but if your sexual partner was not treated with an antifungal cream on his penis it is possible that this will recolonize you with the same organism you just treated. This phenomenon has been shown to be one potential source of reinfection.
