Post Yeast after antibiotics

Ok, this is going to make me sound like a total hypochondriac! I had gardnerella last week and was prescribed the antibiotic Flagyl. I finished the 7 day treatment on Tuesday morning. It is now Thursday night and for the last few days, I've been obsessing over possibly getting a yeast infection. I never had one until about 3 months ago when I experienced one for the first and what I hope is the last time!!! It was horrible! Anyway, I've been checking my tongue for thrush, I'm obsessing over every little itch, checking "down there" with a mirror every night. What are the chances that I could still develop a yeast infection at this point? Would it have happened already while I was on the antibiotics or shortly after or can it still happen now, 3 days later???

Take probiotics after antibiotics to avoid yeast (not with antibiotics). Check out candida on the web.

You need to always eat plenty of yogurt with live active cultures or take acidophillis capsules to help prevent yeast infections. This is something that should be routine but if it isn't at least make sure you do this anytime you are on antibiotics.
