Cytolytic vaginosis? Too much lactobacillus?

Hi there,

I'm new to this forum, but I wanted to see if I could get some insight from someone who might know what's going on with me. So I've dealt with vaginal issues since I got my first uti when I was 16. I've had my share of yeast infections, utis, and bv a couple times. Overtime I've learned how to treat these things myself, so I don't have to go to the doctor so often. I take probiotics, and use boric acid suppositories which always cures a yeast infection for me. The point of this post is, I got a uti recently, which made my vagina burn terribly, and after that was taken care of, I was still having the burning, but was sure it was yeast now. So I started treating for yeast, but it wasn't getting better like it usually does. It seemed to be getting worse. So I went to the doctor today, and she said I have a lot of lactobacillus, and she says this causes yeast?? Isn't that the good bacteria that prevents yeast infections? So I did some research and read about cytolytic vaginosis, and seems to fit with how I've been feeling. But the doctor prescribed me more antifungals, which I'm hesitant to use. Do you think years of trying to prevent and treating yeast could have cause this overgrowth? What should I do?
