Your symptoms suggest that you have a recurrent mixed infection - both yeast and Bacterial Vaginosis infection.
Recurrent infections occur when the vaginal ph changes from its normal one. While medicines like canestan and fluconazole will help , the effect will last only for a few days and then the infections will occur again due to the changed ph.
Please take the following steps to normalize the ph:
- Use Boric acid Vaginal suppositotry - 500 mg twice daily for 3 weeks and then once weekly for 4 weeks.
- Take Rephresh Probiotics.
- Use Vagisil max strength ointment.
Also use Monistat vaginal ovules for 3 days to clear up the infection this time.
All these medicines are available without a prescription.

Your partner does not need treatment since yeast will not spread from you to him.
You can continue to have sex - just insert the suppository at least 2 hours before sex or 1 hour after sex.

Pills will need prescriptions and you will need to consult a doctor.
About the suppositories - you can insert them early in the morning and rest in bed for 1 hour to allow them to dissolve - they will be just as effective.
Alternative you can use the Boric acid once a week from the beginning and not wait for the 3 weeks.
