Bad yeast infection after giving birth

Do you have experience with dealing with post pregnancy mother's who had yeast in their milk ducts and apparently 2 years later it is still in their system? I have had several doctors look at me and think I'm crazy because I am convinced it is yeast because when given Diflucan, I respond immediately (within a couple of hours). I'm talking DRASTIC changes like...all of a sudden my brain is back and I'm not so puffy and fat. I actually don't realize how bloated I am until i take Diflucan and then it just amazes me that I must have some huge amount of this freak fungus all through my body for such a drastic response. The brain clarity also shocks me because I was certain I got more and more dumb after having a baby (which is hard because I'm a Physics Teacher and pride myself with fast thinking). I can't tell you how many times I've cried over this and how long I've spent researching this. I want another baby but I'm scared to death of this yeast. It has come back to say hello to me while my husband and I started trying for number two....and I am thinking it is preventing me from getting pregnant. Before my first child I got pregnant right away, no problems whatsoever. No I bleed after intimacy and I thought I was allergic to my husband or something.......then I remember my old' buddy....YEASTZILLA. I have spent countless hours sanitizing cloth diapers and underwear etc...etc... I've been very patient but now I just figure I'm going to die with this stuff in me that no one, not even the breast specialist who believes I had yeast, has hung on long enough to eradicate this killer. My cells are yearning for energy and vitality again. I'm sick of sporadic moments of better health just to be knocked down by a sickness and then this yeast again. I've been more sick the past year than I ever have. I cant' lose all my baby weight, I lost the sense to taste things that used to be good to me and I feel as thought I may have lost my mind.

As long as you're not breastfeeding, I'd go and look at getting on a good candida diet. You can look at the books on your right, they are absolutely free.
