Question: How long after starting an antibiotic does a yeast infection occur?
I just started an antibiotic on Saturday afternoon, and I began experiencing symptoms of a yeast infection on Sunday. I am curious as to if symptoms would appear this quickly?

The symptoms usually take longer than that, but they could appear that quickly; it’s possible.

    It’s definitely possible. Yeast is always present, but the natural bacteria on the genitals normally keep it controlled. As soon as the antibiotic entered your system it started to kill bacteria and the yeast would have begun to get entrenched and ready to make a serious an assault on your body. If your diet at the time was high in sugars, the yeast would be well fed and able to start growing at a good rate.

    A good way to keep yeast at bay during antibiotic use is to cut out all sugars. I don’t know why doctors don’t advise patients of this. Perhaps because they are all about pills and procedures and not thinking about unintended consequences of treatment and how diet can affect their prescriptions.
