I have a yeast infection, I also just started my period which means I can't use tampons, but I have a very heavy flow so what can I do?

Maxipads. Wear maximum absorbent pads until your period is over, and ask your doctor for oral therapy for your yeast infection, or wait to use intravaginal therapy until your period has ended.
What a bummer! Having a yeast infection while you are on your period is so uncomfortable. I'm not clear why you can't use tampons (you mean because of the yeast?), but if you can't - use pads for the time being. Talk to your doctor about getting a prescription for an oral yeast treatment. If you are getting recurrent yeast infections, cut back on sugar and get tested for diabetes.
Vaginitis. If you are sure you have candidal vaginitis, then you could be prescribed Fluconazole orally as a single dose.

How can I tell if I have a yeast infection or am I getting my period?
