I've had yeast infections on occasion, but definitely not something I'd say was a constant. I do agree that the hormonal fluctuations can encourage them.
Did you have a culture done for exactly what you had? Maybe you had more than one thing going on? Strange that none of the antifungals worked.. I've never heard of borax suppositories before..interesting.
I agree with using probiotics.
Hope this all clears for you soon....dealing with UC plus female health issues is soooo frustrating.
