    Good question. When you have an infection lie bacterial infections and you are prescribed antibiotics then you can acquire other infections such as yeast or fungal. Now if your immune system is compromised then you are more likely to acquire different pathogens that cause diseases. Immune-compromised people could have of course HIV/AIDS, but also cancers, or auto-immune disorders, only lab tests order by your doctor would be the only way to tell. Now the items you talked about could be from the following:

    Bacterial infection august & tonsillitis- Well these could mean the same. itis means inflammation, when you have a bacteria infection or viral in your throat your tonsils my become inflamed or simple tonsillitis. Yeast infections sometimes follow antibiotic treatments. As for the bacterial vaginosis this could have been there for awhile. Many time women are not aware of an infection until much later on. With that said, you mentioned a partner. Well depends on how active you are, certain positions and acts can spread one bug to another area. You might want to insist that your partner goes to a doctor for a check up at least. He or she could have a yeast infection in his or her mouth, which depends on your preferences, could spread to other regions of your anatomy.

    Certain bacteria live happily and quietly in different parts of our bodies, if these move to another area they could become pathogenic. i.e. E.coli is in your lower intestines and rectum if this enters in the vagina or in the penis bacteria infections can form. Remember the "front to back wiping"

    If you are that concerned with these reoccurring infections I would talk to your doctor and see if he or she is concerned. They do seem like they are happening a little more than the normal infection rate.

    Depending on what you do in your life, this may not be a lot of infections. For example, do you work in a school, take public transport, work in a busy office or are you otherwise exposed to many people? Are you tired a lot or not getting enough sleep sometimes? It sounds like (maybe I'm wrong) 2 throat infections and 2 vaginal infections over 5 months -these are not necessarily related. Do you take birth control pills? They increase the incidence of vaginal yeast infections and the bacterial vaginosis is unrelated, coud have been caught from your partner who may not know he is a carrier. Just some thoughts, hope they may be of use to you. Good luck.

    Stay away from mucous producing foods such as milk, cheese, and orange juice for one thing. Try seeing an ENT who specializes in that area. It is possible u may need to have your tonsils removed.

    As to the other it is also possible to overtreat a yeast infection. When this occurs it causes another bacteria to overgrow and then u wind up with what appears to be a neverending infection.

    Be sure to see an ob/gyn for that and don't diagnose it yourself. If you have done that then it's also possible you weren't on antibiotics long enough to kill all of the infection. Antibiotics can also cause yeast infections. So if u are treating your throat with one then that can be a side effect. You should really consult your ob/gyn.

    Lastly, and this will sound funny and I truly don't mean to offend or embarass you. If you are using certain food products like "maple syrup" during intercourse (oral) w/ your partner this type of sugar will cause an overgrowth of bacteria. It is completely treatable. Not all foods should be used for sex play as they can cause adverse reaction.

    You should also seriously consider that your partner is the culprit. If he refuses to be tested for anything you should refuse to have relations with him. The fact that you suggest it is an indication that you already have a seed of doubt. If he hasn't anything to hide then there isn't any reason why he can't get checked for his own sake if not to give you peace of mind and to help you so that you don't have to continue to suffer the way you have.

    Stay away from yogurt too. Change your toothbrush. You might be reinfecting yourself if you are using the same one from the original infection.

    Make appointments asap. Good Luck.

    The healthy vagina includes a small amount of these bacteria and organisms. When the vaginal balance is disrupted by the overgrowth of these bacteria another protective bacterium -- lactobacilli is unable to adequately perform its normal function. Lactobacilli normally provides a natural disinfectant (similar to hydrogen peroxide) which helps maintain the healthy and normal balance of microorganisms in the vagina.

    E. coli which is a normal inhabitant of the rectum can cause bacterial vaginitis if it is spread to the vaginal area. Other factors which may contribute include hot weather, poor health, poor hygiene, use of an intrauterine device (IUD) for birth control, and routine vaginal douching.

    Risk of bacterial vaginosis increases with menopause, and in women with diabetes, as well as women whose resistance is lowered due to other conditions.

    Could be associated with anyone you come into contact with. Proper handwashing is very important to stop the spread of germs.
