Taking Fluconazole while on antibiotics is not is not a good thing to do to the health of your body. A lot of women think that using an anti fungal drug such as Fluconazole will prevent a yeast infection, but this is not what will happen. Fluconazole just kills fungus, it doesn’t stop the Candida that is in your body from mutating. You have to stop the Candida from mutating to prevent a yeast infection.
It’s a sign that your body’s natural defenses are already weak if you get a yeast infection every time you take antibiotics. Antibiotics are taken every day by thousands of women who don’t get an infection because they have strong immune system. Taking the antibiotics and getting a yeast infection is a sign that you need to give you body a complete Candida cleanse, and strengthen your body’s natural defenses.
All you will do if you take Fluconazole while you’re taking antibiotics is create a drug resistant yeast infection. The antibiotics that you take destroy your beneficial bacteria that keep the Candida under control. This is what causes the fungus to start breeding when you take the anti bacterial drugs.
If you try and kill the fungus with Fluconazole all that will happen is the Candida will mutate into more fungus when the anti fungal drug has stopped being taken. And because the Candida in your body will have been exposed to the drug, the fungus that it mutates into will be more resistant.
To prevent a yeast infection while you’re taking antibiotics you need to re-establish your body’s natural defenses. And you do this by talking a good quality probiotics after you’ve finished you course of anti bacterial drugs.
Probiotics replenish your intestines with beneficial bacteria that keep the Candida under control and prevent it from mutating. If you don’t take a good quality supplement then the bacteria will not survive the journey into your intestines. If you take a cheap supplement then you won’t have enough strains of bacteria, and they will be killed off as soon as they enter your stomach.
