I took diflucan (fluconazole) and a day later I had sex. Will this have any affects on the pill or will my yeast infection not get cured?
Perhaps. Fluconazole (diflucan) may help to eradicate candida (yeast) from your vagina, but if your sexual partner was not treated with an antifungal cream on his penis it is possible that this will recolonize you with the same organism you just treated. This phenomenon has been shown to be one potential source of reinfection.
200mg fluconazole it's been 24 hours no relief. Had yeast infection last week that went away with 150 but had sex and it came back this week. Why?
Check the diagnosis. It usually takes 2-3 days for yeast symptoms to improve after taking fluconazole. However, it's unusual for yeast to recur so soon, and sex usually doesn't trigger yeast. So maybe the diagnosis isn't correct. Check back with the doctor or clinic where you were diagnosed. Good luck! Read more...
