Many strong anti biotics (including Flagyl) can actually CAUSE yeast infections. It kills the "good" bacteria women need along with the bad bacteria we want to get rid of like a sinus infection. You can now buy OTC meds for yeast infections.
Good luck to you and there are also creams you could use for the side effects of yeast infections, i.e. itching, redness, etc.
Flagyl is NOT an antibiotic, it is an antifungal in the same class of drugs as any other antifungal, it does not cause yeast infections as it is an antifungal..metronidazole... anything ending in ole pretty much. Please dont say anything at all if you dont know what you are talking about...
