I finally got over my female yeast infection, after a few weeks. Are there reliable ways to keep it from happening again?

In brief: Nothing is 100%

No guarantees, but hygiene, avoiding antibiotics, avoid tight-fitting clothes, and wear cotton or breathable fabrics, keep diabetes under control, avoid powders and products containing talc, cornstarch, deodorant or scented tampons, douches, sprays etc; are methods to decrease your chance of recurrence.
