Not me. I was on the pill 8 years and never took probiotics or ate yogurt (until just under 1 year ago). I have never had a yeast infection. I think some people are just more susceptible than others. My sister isn't even on the pill but she gets them a lot.
The pill contains estrogen and progesterone. When taken as a supplement both hormones, estrogen especially, causes an imbalance which leads to yeast overgrowth... hence, yeast infections. It isn't uncommon for post menopausal women on hormones to develop thrush and yeast infections.
