I have yeast infection right after my period. My period already ended 2 days before the infection. It was super itchy so I use the Candid V gel to be insert at night. The next day there are super light bleeding happen. Is this even normal ? 2 weeks before I have bacteria vaginosis so doctor prescribed me with antibiotics (flagyl) for 2 weeks to clear it. But i think this cause me to have yeast infection?
