In brief: Often worse
The "headquarters" of yeast, usually candida albicans, is in the bowel.
Vaginal treatment is inadequate. You need to see a physician who is familiar with the diagnosis of "yeast syndrome". Yeast in the bowel feeds on sugar so there is a strong association with diet. Sometimes fermentation in the bowel gives rise to "growling and bubbling" that is even audible.
