Hi everyone, I have been on birth control for the past 6 years (recently switched to Ortho Tri Cylcen Lo). In the past 2 years I have had about 4-5 yeast infections. I'm not sure if that is a lot since I know many women experience reoccurring yeast infections. But prior to those 4 or 5, I had never had one before.
I go to my gynecologist every six months and have received prescription cream to treat them. But it seems like they keep coming back. My doctor insists that birth control does not cause yeast infections, even though I've read they do and it even says it on the BC packet itself.
I have been with my FI for 5 1/2 years and we do not use condoms. I read online that it is possible to pass it to your partner and for them to pass it back. My FI hasn't had any symptoms of itching or irritation, but to be sure I asked my doctor about it and he said no it is not possible.
I guess I'm just looking for some advice and support from women who also experience this.
