Candidal vaginitis: If you are having recurrence after sex there is the possibility that your partner (who may not have any symptoms), is reinfecting you. Have him apply an antifungal cream to his penis twice daily for a week or more and have your doctor give you a prescription for Fluconazole and treat you through one menstrual period. If this does not work, ask again.
