Why do I have to change my password every other day?
It's never a good idea to list email addresses or phone numbers on a public forum. These can be harvested for later use by spammers or hackers.
Password issues can be browser-related. I'd clear your browser's cookies and cache, close the browser, and open it again before trying to reset your password. Passwords shouldn't be changed more than once every 24 hours.
Clearing browser's cache and cookies -
You can also try using a different browser to see if that allows you to change your password. Password change issues can also be the result of using ad blockers or pop -up blockers. You may need to disable these options before you can change your password.

Once you change your password it would be a good idea to review your security questions and make changes if you don't remember your answers.
Changing your security questions -
I recommend using a password manager like Keepass or LastPass to create and store strong unique passwords for the sites you visit. You can also save notes like your secret questions and answers to the password entries. LastPass can automatically log you in to any web site you have stored in its database.

Yahoo's advice is to change your password, but there are several more security settings to change than just your password. This Help page has more information, stated clearly, with several links to clarify the steps.
1. FIRST, check that the alternate e-mail address/mobile phone number is still yours, under Options, Mail Options, Account Information, but then change the alternate address! (so the hacker will not be notified of the change). Check the 'Reply To:' address as well.
Then change both your password AND your secret questions and answers. Make the password a long, strong one with mixed characters! Length = Strength for passwords! Start with a sentence and make substitutions with numbers, symbols and punctuation. Go to "Update password-reset info" to change your Secret Questions and Answers. Make sure they are unchangeable, unique, and easy for you to remember. For a Yahoo account, you can change your password at . If you can no longer access your account, you can get a new password at .
*** Changing your password also deletes the cookie which apparently inserts that sly trojan address grabber that sends spam to your Contacts list. ***
If you used this password for other accounts, change them too - make every one different. Make the password much longer than 8 characters, with mixed symbols.
Usually, this is all you need to do, although mail will still be sent in the name of the old account for a short while - there's nothing you can do about that. Once spammers have a valid address, they continue to use it, even after the account is closed/deleted!
*** Yahoo strongly recommends that you use another e-mail system for your 'alternate e-mail address':

Click on this one for a Hotmail or Live account:
2. If you need to restore your Yahoo! Address Book (Contacts), please fill out the following restoration form and one of the Yahoo! Address Book agents will attempt to restore your Yahoo! Address Book. This is only possible for 10 days but is worth a try.
or, click Help on the mail page, then Contact Customer Care. The Live Chat button takes a few seconds to show up, but it will. If not, wait and refresh the page (F5). Use the cartoon dialogue bubble for Live Chat, and the envelope icon for e-mail. The e-mail response is often only a few hours!
