Question: How to prevent yeast infection when on antibiotics?
Every time I am prescribed any anti-biotic, I get a yeast infection. Can a physician prescribe something to fight off the yeast in advance or is there a reliable way to prevent it with home cure or diet?

Yogurt. One container regularly will keep the bacteria away and the yeast infections from happening.

    drink lots of cranberry juice (yes I know its nasty).
    also eating yogurt can help. if you still have problems, your dr. can also perscribe you something.

    The best and easiest thing to do is to eat yogurt everyday. The yogurt has to have active cultures in it or you can get a pill called acidophilus. You can also get milk with acidophilus which is very easy if your a milk drinker. These help keep a normal ph balance in your uterus and vagina. It’s worked for me. Try it out.

    Yogurt will help, but if it doesn’t do the trick, call your doctor and ask for a Diflucan. It’s a yeast infection treatment that just involves taking one pill. I always keep one on hand.

    Now that I got that off my chest let me move on…..
    I too am a sufferer of yeast infections while on antibiotics, it is really a pain BUT, here are a few tips to avoid or deal with them!
    1.) Take acidophiles while on the antibiotic. Yogurt does NOT have enough alone to fight off the yeast from antibiotics. you’d have to eat a yogurt factory to actually help. Eating 1 container a day is only good for ibs (irritable bowel syndrom)
    I eat yogurt every day and still get yeast infections while on certain medications so, I would not suggest that as a cure for your problem, You need more than what these people are suggesting!
    Get the acidophiles that you store in the frig, from GNC with Live cultures, Take 2 in the morning and 2 before bed.
    2.) Explain to your doctor that you get yeast infections and ask for a pill Diflucan, that fights yeast while on this.
    3.) Get a couple boxes of monistat while on this.

    I know yeast infections are annoying while taking other antibiotics but, I have learned how to deal with them by the 3 above choices.
    Good Luck and happy healing!
