Can Men Take Diflucan For Yeast Infection
Is diflucan/fluconazole safe for men to take once for a yeast infection? Affect sperm count? If I don't have yeast infection can it cause one? Wat happn
Would be safe, ...: ...but why consider it if you don't have a yeast infection? The drug itself cannot cause a yeast infection. I see some internet buzz about fluconazole and sperm count, apparently going back to a single report of a minor effect in rabbits, but it's not been known to occur in humans.

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

3-4 days.: It is supposed to one-shot the yeast infection. If it doesn't calling your doctor to get another Diflucan (fluconazole) is not a bad idea.
