This is due to the harmful nature of antibiotics that kill not only bad bacteria but good gut organisms necessary for maintaining our good health.

Antibiotics are not prescribed as a cure for yeast infections since candida that causes yeast infections is not a bacteria but a fungal organism that only responds to probiotic and antifungal therapy.

Oral antibiotics for vaginal infections are only prescribed for especially persistent and recurring cases of vaginal infection.
