In brief: Oral meds/Acid

You may be one who has to have a monthly pill for yeats ("diflucan").
You may also need to change the acidity of the vagina. An acidifying cream/tablet applied to the vagina may help. Make sure you are healthy! any suspicion or need to get tested for diabetes? Recurrent use of antibiotics? Is the sexual partner having problems? Is he uncircumcised? Get check and or another opinion.
