    HRT gels.

    I have been taking hormone gels compounded by a pharmacy in Pennsylvania for 14 months. 6 weeks ago I developed a vaginal yeast infection that will not go away. I took 3 rounds of diflucan which did not help. I read where HRT therapy can cause yeast infections. Has anyone had this problem? Thanks
