Hi, Sounds like you're in a vicious cycle which leave you in a medical ailment paradox. I have had recurring vaginal thrush infections for nearly 3 years now. Have also suffered with chronic skin breakouts I'm certain yeast is also responsible for but guess what? All the GP wants to do is prescribe me more antibiotics for my "acne vulgaris" which consequently gives me thrush again. Treating the symptoms and not establishing the root cause is common practice from my experience and so frustrating. When I was prescribed erythromycin for me acne (which is caused by yeast, not bacteria, therefore the tablets are useless), I was blatently told by my GP that the thrush I'd developed had most likely been caused by the antibiotics; so it's no secret, yet medical professionals continue to chain us to the pharmaceutical conveyor belt.
Holistic or homeopathic remedies are dismissed and you feel bullied into swallowing what you're given by the GP. In my opinion, unless you establish the root cause for your continual BV infections, you're going to be stuck in this vicious cycle. Although one is caused by a bacteria infection (ie the BV) and the other is caused by a fungal infection (ie the thrush), you shouldn't be made to endure either, let alone an alternation of them both infinitum. They are equally as uncomfortable and unpleasant to suffer with once in a lifetime and I genuinely feel for you. I'm not a medical professional but it sounds like you've got an imbalance of vaginal flora (and may possibly have the same issues with your gut whose health status impacts upon the rest of your body and organs). I think that exploring a holistic approach which treats the body as a whole would benefit you greatly. Continuing to take prescribed antibiotics / antifungals will eventually result in both the bacteria and fungi responsible for both afflictions becoming immune and you'll have to look elsewhere for a solution eventually anyways. At least if you refrain from using antibiotics/antifungals (as I presume you've been using them for a considerable length of time already), you won't increase the resistance of either microbe culprits and could obtain encouraging (and possibly permanent) results from implementing a holistic approach asap. I don't want to be accused of spam so I'm not going to put the link in this message, but if you google "how to cure BV holistically", it will provide you with lots of natural and equally effective remedies that will also give you physical relief short term as well as the promise of a more long-term resolve. Things like apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil and other antifungal/antibacterial powerhouse substances have the potential to offer a solution, cost next to nothing and won't hinder in the event that they don't help. Am not sure which country you reside in but if like me, you're in the UK, the store called Savers (sister company of Superdrug last time I checked) sell 30ml of 100% tea tree oil for less than £3 and Amazon sell organic apple cider vinegar (with the mother) at less than £12 for 5Litres! For the price and how much you'll be using for each application, both products will last you absolutely ages! I advise you to find out how much of each product you should use and whether you are to dilute before application (as well as whether you can use them in conjunction with each other) as they're both extremely potent and are being administered internally to a very sensitive part of your body. I would also suggest that you orally take 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar with half a hot (NOT boiling, else you'll kill the beneficial part of the Vinegar) cup of water at least 3 times a day. Tastes pretty bad, but if you peruse its benefits online, you'll be willing to hold your nose and swig it down.
Hope at least some of this response helps, even if it's to make you aware that stopping the antibiotics will be the start of your road to recovery. Remember, Doctors know more than we do about the ailments we can all suffer with and are institutionalised to treat the symptoms, NOT cure the patient. But it's impossible for them to know everything about every individual person's medical circumstances and have been trained to practise what they've been taught to for 6+ years). This usually means having little or not time for alternative remedies, even if the masses (consisting of individuals who have personally tried and tested, and experienced results) sing the praises of holistic and natural remedies. We have to accept that whilst the world's medical sector is governed by the pharmaceutical Goliath's of this day and age, us David's of the internet, wanting to spread the word that there ARE other options have their work cut out. So we'll keep calm and carry on.
Good Luck! Hope my response assists you in some way.
I have suffered from recurrent yeast infection. I do believe it's linked to herpes or H.PV. I suggest taking a multivitamin and vitamin d 1000mg or higher. You should also take a woman probiotic. It starts with an F. Take it cold. Also drink lots of lemon water and eat a yeast free diet or low sugar carb diet. Bread and sugar drinks have always cause issue for me. Also make sure your partner is treated to prevent reinfection.
