In brief: Antibiotic use

Recent antibiotic use can cause fungal infection such as yeast infection.
Once you are off antibiotics for a while you should not be getting frequent yeast infection unless you have underlying diabetes or other medical conditions.

In brief: Yeast infections

There can be many causes for reoccuring yeast infections.
Not knowing you, uncontrolled diabetes can cause reoccuring yeast infections. Also, if you douche this could disturb the natural environment of the vagina. Also, if you swim or exercise and do not change clothes, you could get a yeast infection. You should see your gynecologist to find the cause.
