Why yeast??: Recurrent yeast infection is uncommon unless one has been on recurrent antibiotics, low estrogen level ( if progesterone only bc) or tendency to high blood sugar, such as diabetes. Have these been checked? Mild contact allergic reaction can occur with scented tampons, and drying can occur with highly absorbant tampons when only scant flow.
