Can taking diflucan (fluconazole) and birth control delay your period?

Can taking diflucan (fluconazole) and birth control delay your period?

Depends: Taking Diflucan (fluconazole) will not delay your period. If you are taking birth control and you miss pills, or skip placebo pills and go straight to next pack, then the ocp can delay your period. But in general, taking these medications as prescribed will not delay your period. Read more

Does fluconazole affect yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)? Would fluconazole, delay my period?

Fluconazole: Fluconazole should not affect the workings of the birth control pill. It should not delay you period. Occasionally on the pill, you will see no bleeding, or only a little bleeding, some months. This is ok. If you are worried, a simple pregnancy test should ease your mind. Read more

Bummer: Sometimes yeast infections can be difficult to treat. I recommend you speak with your doctor about options. Sometimes women take weekly Diflucan (fluconazole) for about 6 weeks. Some women try gentian violet. Elimination diets sometimes help as well. A great book on the subject is "the v book" by elizabeth stewart, can find used on amazon. She has excellent description of refractory yeast infection. Read more

Have a bad yeast infection. Took 150mg diflucan 3 days ago, but started period 2 days ago and yeast infection is worse now. OK to take diflucan again?

Resistant yeast?: It's OK to take it again, but it probably won't work. A few percent of yeasts causing vaginal infections are resistant to fluconazole (Diflucan) and other "azole" drugs. Or maybe it's something other than yeast. See your doctor to reconfirm the diagnosis and perhaps consider alternate therapy, e.g. flucytosine, caspofungin, or nystatin. Read more

I took a fluconazole and I'm also on lo-loestrin. Didn't get my period this month, and was late taking one pill. How great of a risk is pregnancy?

Risk of pregnancy: Not much of a risk at all. Being late on only one dose of your ocp is not an issue in and of itself, and Fluconazole actually increases the blood levels of oral contraceptives. The risk of contraceptive failure in the scenario you describe is basically nil. Read more

I had a yeast infection 2 weeks ago my doc gave me te fluconazole pill I'm still red will it go away oh and I just started my period help?

I had a yeast infection 2 weeks ago my doc gave me te fluconazole pill I'm still red will it go away oh and I just started my period help?

Resistant yeast?: Yeast symptoms should have cleared up within a few days of taking fluonazole, maybe need an additional dose. Also, some yeasts are resistant to fluconazole and other "azole" drugs. But redness alone may not mean anything; itching and irritation are more important symptoms. Return to your doctor to confirm whether you still have a yeast infection and perhaps further treatment. Good luck! Read more
