No its not too late but you need to go to your OB first. You cant take all over the counter meds and they will give you something safe to take while pg. Good luck.

Re: 33 weeks a few q's

It is perfectly norm for a pregnant woman to get yeast infections due to the hormones my sister had a terrible time with them when she was preg. with her first. I had one myself last week my Dr told me to use Monistat dont use any generic brands I am not sure how safe those are see your Ob before you treat your self, she might suggest something else, I didnt use any creams I just ate yogurt for a few days and that worked for me but that wont neccesarily work for you see what your Dr says.

Hi Karen,

I think your doctor will probably tell you which brand of treatment is best. Yeast infections are a pain, even when not pregnant.

As a preventative, eating yogurt is great. You need to make sure that you buy a kind that has active yogurt cultures. Most of them do but some of the more processed kinds ( with all the fun things like candy and the like added to them) have a lower count of these cultures. I try to buy plain and I add a ton of fruit to it. It also has the added benefit of being a great source of calcium and low fat or fat free if you buy the right kind.

Good luck,

Jen
