Glabrata yeast

I have had many cultures done and everything came negative. Some of them were cultured for 30 to 40 days. However my last culture came positive for Glabrata after 3 days only!!! I was prescribed nystatin and ampicilin ovules- refrigerated - for 7 days. I always thought that Ampicilin is an antibiotic which can cause yeast growth. Why the doctor would prescribe this? Anybody here cured glabrata? And what are the symptoms for glabrata?

Re: Glabrata yeast

Glabrata is one of the Candida yeasts - about ten variant organisms- that affect people with compromised immune systems. You probably belong in that category. Can it be cured? I doubt if even your doctor has a straight answer because it is rare, and doctors don't have enough experience with rare diseases.

Re: Glabrata yeast

Thanks. Anyway my doctor said that it is a common infection in women and that it can be cured. However reading some posts here and other sites, it doesn't look like it is easily cured. No, I am not imuno compromised. As a matter of fact, I had a lot of lab test done recently and everything was within limits. I am more interested in women oppionion, especially those who have had dealt with this infection.
