Any time


Since a broad-spectrum antibiotic kills both disease-causing and innocuous bacteria, this allows the yeast to proliferate. However whether one ends up with an yeast infection would depend on the individual ,the duration , & the type of antibiotic. I often prescribe an anti-fungal drug along with the antibiotic for some. However during pregnancy a safer choice may be probiotics.

You can develop a UTI resistant to the antibiotic UR on if you develop a UTI whilst on antibiotics. UTI is certainly most likely with your symptoms. Will certainly require a different antibiotic to clear up. Good Luck.

Antibiotics can


Neither Dulera (momethasone/formoterol)nor Adavir (fluticasone/salmeterol) are likely to cause yeast infections. Antibiotics taken by mouth are notorious for causing them. They kill, in addition to the bacteria that caused your infection, also the bacteria that normally live in the vagina, enabling Candida (yeast) to multiply and cause infection.

Not all discharge is yeast. Have you been examined and that is what is diagnosed? There are other treatments besides monistat 1 that may help if it is yeast.

No bacteria left


Antibiotics kill bacteria. A woman's vagina has bacteria in it that are actually meant to be there and prevent yeast in the vagina from growing too much and causing symptoms of a yeast infection. When you take antibiotics the level of these 'good' bacteria in the vagina drops which allows the yeast in the vagina to grow too much.

Alteration of flora


Yeast are present in our GI tract as part of a normal mixed population of organisms. The balance of these competing organisms helps to prevent any one from becoming predominant, but when you treat with antibiotics you kill many sensitive bacteria and allow yeast (which does not respond to antibiotics) to overgrow and possibly produce disease. Clostridium difficile is similar.
