In brief: Bad luck
A vaginal yeast infection is common after taking antibioics, however 1 out of 10 women, at some time, will experience recurrent vaginal yeast infections for no apparent reason (hence the bad luck).
The recurrences typically come at the same time during the menstrual cycle. Those patients can usually be managed with treatment and suppression (usually for six months) with good results.
