What could cause continous vaginal bacterial infections?

Several things. Incomplete treatment comes to mind. If you didn't finish your course of antibiotics, you could have grown some resistant bugs. Although not strictly an std, it is possible that a sexual partner could have re-infected you if you had sex during treatment. You might also consider using a probiotic to replenish your natural vaginal flora and re-establish a proper ph. See your ob-gyn for more ideas.
