Used yogurt inserted vaginally 2 cure yeast infection how long do i have 2 wait before i can use condoms without worrying about yogurt damaging condom?

Yogurt and condoms: The yogurt will not damage with condoms. However yogurt is not the most effective way to cure a vaginal yeast infection. You may still need treatment for the vaginal yeast infection. Over the counter medications such as monistat (miconazole), gyne-lotrimin (clotrimazole) or gynezol (butoconazole) are more effective in treat yeast infections. ...Read more

Fluconazole cured my first yeast infection. Then i got another one or it came back after my boyfriend fingered me. Why? We use condoms during sex.

Local vaginal yeast rx's are more effective than systemic oral meds like Fluconazole that go all over the body before it makes it to the vagina. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with acute prostatitis can my wife get a infection or yeast infection through sexual intercourse? We do not use condoms

Maybe: This is most likely if the cause is trichomonas. If this does happen, you can get treated together and this will probably be a very good thing in the long run for eradicating the infection. The other prostatitis microbes aren't so catching. Was a microbe identified? ...Read more

Can condoms cause a yeast infection?

Can condoms cause a yeast infection?

Highly unlikely: Unless the condom had been open some time & become contaminated, highly unlikely that it could cause a yeast problem. Remote possibility: if condom had spermicidal agent on it, that may have somehow upset the balance between yeast and normal bacteria in the vagina, but have never seen that reported before. ...Read more
