Yeast Infection Treatment/Antibiotics

I've noticed that after about 2 or 3 days of being on some antibiotics, I'm begining to develop a yeast infection.  Luckily I noticed it early so its not all that bad right now, plus I already have an over the counter treatment but here is the problem - I still have about 7 days left on the antibiotics which everyone knows, I need to finish taking.

If I treat the yeast infection while still on the antibiotics, will it be effective or do I need to wait until the medicine is done (and the infection is worse) and THEN treat it?

I woudl start treating it now and if it recurs, then treat it again. No sense in be uncomfortable, right?

hi, i got my first yeast infection (how exiting) a few months ago after my doctor prescribed antibiotics for a bronchitis.. i went to see him 2 days later with symptoms of a yeast infection he actually told me that its VERY common to get this while taking antibiotics.. i was prescribed 1 oral pill called diflucan, i had the same reaction and told my doctor if i take this pill now what happens to the rest of my antibiotic???
he told me that this pill works in the system for a couple of days. but also he told me to eat plenty of yogurt becaude it has active bacteria in it that we need mostly when we have a yeast infection because often a yeast infection starts because the antibiotics destroy bacteria that we need in the vagina..
i even spoke to my obgyn about this and she told me its true.. well hope this advice can help you

You can read from my previous question that this is something that I have been fighting for years.

I have gotten to where if I need a prescription for antibiotics for anything, I automatically get my doctor to write me a prescription for that pill to cure yeast infections. I ALWAYS KNOW that I will end up with a yeast infection -- without a doubt!

Don't wait -- start treating yourself now, it will only get worse if you don't. Good luck!
