Question: I have had a yeast infection for over a month now. I am on my 3rd medicine and have been to my OBGYN and my test was normal. I am not using boric acid suppositories and know i have about a week or 2 left(2 times a week) but i have never had one last this long. Will it ever go away and is this normal?

Brief Answer:
Check for diabetes and take weekly tablets till free of infection.

Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thanks for your query.
I understand your concern.
It would be good to check for diabetes and other conditions that impair immunity and predispose to persistence of yeast infection.
You could also take Flucanazole 150 mg orally once a week till you are free of the yeast infection.
