100mg of Fluconazole every other day for 7 days for a yeast infection.... Not working, but I know I'm clean of std's. If it's not yeast, what is it??

In brief: Candida glabrata?

This is an atypical treatment for vaginal yeast infection.
A single dose of fluconazole by mouth is the normal treatment and ususally effective. However, about 10-15% of infections are caused by Candida glabrata, which is resitant to all "azole" drugs -- unlike the more common Candida albicans. Speak with your doctor about a) confirning the diagnosis and b) alternative treatments. Good luck!
