Recuring yeast infections for many years

I've had this problem for many years. I had to stop taking contraception because it was causing candida. Of course, I don't wear thongs,tights jeans, no tampons, no sweets, I use special soaps. I took many drugs to clear the problem, many creams applied.It was OK for some time but now, since October 2010 I've had candida every single month. It clears up for a few weeks but then after a period comes back.I don't have so much of a dischage but the itching is unbearable. My sexual life is non-existent because every time I have sex with my husband candida comes back. Last time I had the tests done, they didn't confirm any yeast but streptoccocus was present. I've been under a lot of pressure/stress for the last 18 months and the blood tests confirmed my low immunity-I've taken some prescribed tablets to boost my immnunity since December 2010.
