Anyone have chronic yeast infections with Yaz or Yasmin BCP’s?

Question: Anyone have chronic yeast infections with Yaz or Yasmin BCP’s?
I have been on Yaz for nearly a month now. Within the first week I developed a yeast infection. I saw my ob/gyn and have now taken 2 rounds of Diflucan, a seven day (vaginal) prescription treatment, and now another vaginal treatment that is one dose (still inactivity to see if that one helps). I recall getting chronic yeast infections while taking Yasmin several years ago, even though at the time I didn’t see the connection. I’m wondering if it has anything to do with the hormone DRSP which is found in Yaz/Yasmin.

Anyone have the same problem? Were you ready to tollerate any other BCP’s? I am interested in Loestrin 24, for the possibilty of short, light, or no periods. Also, the 24 active pills are supposed to decrease symptoms of PMS. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hormonal changes that come with pregnancy (See Yeast Infections During Pregnancy) or before your period
Taking hormones or birth control pills
Taking antibiotics or steroids
High blood sugar, as in diabetes

    I have been on yasmin for over 2 years now…{i haven’t ever tried any other bcp} but I have the same problem with chronic yeast infections, I also was tested for intestinal yeast overgrowth{which can cause vaginal infections}, you may want to look into that too {i was told it was just IBS, but we’ll see,lol}..I’m actually getting ready to stat diflucan{oral} and probiotics and see if that helps…Good luck, hope you feel better soon…
