I will first advise you to direct this question to your doctor, pharmacist, or nurse rather than the internet;
That being said, I would not do so, as this may decrease the effectiveness of the Cipro if it is taken concurrently.
If you are concerned about vaginal yeast infections and get these often, see your doctor for a topical cream, or use one of the over-the-counter topical preparations like Monistat.
If you use an OTC prep, please do so only if you develop symptoms of a yeast infection and don't take it to prevent one.
Vaginal flora are in a delicate balance, and too much of an anti-yeast medication may tip the balance of flora in favor of bacteria (your normal vaginal bacteria count--yes, there are normally bacteria there to balance other flora like yeast--may become too high, and this condition is called bacterial vaginosis).

no, it will impair the effectiveness of the Cipro. It would be safer and better to eat yogurt to prevent over growth of yeast in the vaginal area, but always eat it one hour before or two hours after taking the Cipro.

his medication is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections. Ciprofloxacin belongs to a class of drugs called quinolone antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria.This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for virus infections (such as common cold, flu). Unnecessary use or misuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness.
Read the Medication Guide and, if available, the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start taking ciprofloxacin and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually twice a day in the morning and evening.The tablet may have a bitter taste if you split, chew, or crush it before taking it. The manufacturer recommends swallowing the tablet whole for this reason.The dosage and length of treatment is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Drink plenty of fluids while taking this medication unless your doctor tells you otherwise.Take this medication at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after taking other products that may bind to it, decreasing its effectiveness. Ask your pharmacist about the other products you take. Some examples include: quinapril, sucralfate, vitamins/minerals (including iron and zinc supplements), and products containing magnesium, aluminum, or calcium (such as antacids, didanosinesolution, calcium supplements).Calcium-rich foods, including dairy products (such as milk, yogurt) or calcium-enriched juice, can also decrease the effect of this medication. Take this medication at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after eating calcium-rich foods, unless you are eating these foods as part of a larger meal that contains other (non-calcium-rich) foods. These other foods decrease the calcium binding effect.Ask your doctor or pharmacist about safely using nutritional supplements/replacements with this medication.Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. Therefore, take this drug at evenly spaced intervals.Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection.Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
