Flagyl and diflucan

I have been on flagyl for a week for BV....After taking this for a week I am still having symptoms so I called my DR. and she called me in diflucan(I told her it felt like a yeast infection more than BV).My question is can I take the diflucan while on Flagyl. I am on the last of my flagyl.

Re: Flagyl and diflucan

neither worked for me-I tired them on two different cycles, just before my menses

what worked though is taking multivitamins and acidophilus tablets, and live yogurt a big difference

Does yogurt work for BV as well as yeast infections?

Re: Flagyl and diflucan

no- yogurt will not work for BV- truthfully-it doesn't really cure YIs either- it's good for preventing but once you havea YI- you need a cure. Flagyl will give you a nasty YI. I have a question though- I have a YI right now- I took diflucan 3 days ago and although I definitely got relief- I still "notice" the YI- how long does diflucan take to cure complete? shoudl I get a back up 1 day cream maybe? I don't like those 1 days- they burn like crazy!!!
