Numerous types. Tgere are numerous types of yeast infections. I presume from the way your question is asked you are referring to recurrent yeast infections. Many times probiotics can help prevent recurrence of yeast infections. Probiotics are things such as lactobacillus acidophilus and related. Active yagurt also contains the same beneficial bacteria. These bacteria prevent conditions that allow yeasflouris.

Diflucan (fluconazole) You could take Diflucan (fluconazole) which is an anti-fungal. Increasing dietary yogurts, live cultures may help, too.
Preventing yeast. First, have a doctor confirm the diagnosis; other things can cause similar symptoms. Second, if there is an underlying condition causing yeast infections, take care of that (e.g. good control of diabetes, stop antibiotics). Otherwise, you'll need medication. There are several options other than miconazole (Monistat). Check with your doctor.
Pills. If a yeast infection is persistent, a physician may prescribe a strong anti-yeast pill such as fluconazole. This medication should be taken carefully because it can interact with many other medications. Once the yeast infection is cleared, using a powder such as zeasorb topically can help keep infections from recurring.
UTI. Get treated with antibiotics and antifungals and make sure you are not diabetic.
