Does Yeast Infections Cause Chlamydia
Recently went for test due to suspected yeast infection, then positive chlamydia, but also yeast present. Can chlamydia have caused the yeast too?

The highest priority is treatment of your chlamydia. Your current or recent sex partner (s) also need treatment and ideally should also be tested for chlamydia. Good luck! ...Read more

Treated for chlamydia twice and a yeast infection 3 days after treatment still having large white chunky discharge, could it be something else?
Got yeast infection when pregnant 2x. Now hubby has chlamydia after 6 yrs. Wrong diagnosis or did he cheat? No problems with kids. He says no.
Usually yes, but...: When chlamydia shows up in a couple, usually there is another partner. But sometimes not, and you are best judge of hubby's behavior and truthfulness. Some kinds of tests can give false results. Rarely chlamydia may persist many years in intestinal tract, then reinfect female genital. No risk or concern for the kids. You should be tested too, and you both need treatment: better safe than sorry. ...Read more

OK for Monistat: Antibiotics, including those for chlamydia, can trigger yeast infections. If you've had yeast before and the symptoms are the same, you can safely use an over-the-counter medication like Monistat, or any vaginal product with active ingredient ending in "azole" (clotrimazole, miconazole, teraconazole, etc). Or a single oral dose of fluconazole (Diflucan®). None will interfere with chlamydia Rx. ...Read more

Yeast infec unlikely: Yeast infection is not uncommon after antibiotic treatment, but usually is associated with itching and a white cheesey discharge.

So no worries; take the fluconazole as it was prescribed. ...Read more
