I am 5 1/2 months pregnant, and I found out that I have a yeast infection. The people at the hospital told me that on my next appointment, which is almost 2 weeks away, that I should inform my doctor about it so they can give me medication for it. Do anyone think it is wise to wait until my appointment on Nov. 23rd or should I go to them right away? Is a yeast infection harmful to your baby?
Hi. I am 6.5 months along... I think I am in the beginning stages of one. I don't have the smelly discharge but I have slight burning and frequent urination (most of the time) - sometimes I don't... so I called my OB's nurse and she said I could use Monistat but DO NOT put it INSIDE - you can only use the cream on the OUTSIDE.... area....
I am going tomorrow to get something... I think most of them come in suppository form so I will have to find one with the cream and not use the applicator... just I guess use the cream on the outside.. fun.
Hope this helps... Or wait and call your Doc on Monday - I would for sure do something before the 23rd! and I don't think it can harm your baby at all (having a yeast infection)... but I am not 100% on that.
OK the nurse at the Doc's office said to not insert the cream... just use it around the area... How in the heck can that solve any problems???? it doesn't seem like it can help...
Anyway... I am thinking I am at the beginning stages of a YI because the only symptoms I really seem to have is peeing OFTEN like sometimes 3 times an hour and sometimes its ALOT of pee each time but most often its only a little and I feel like i have to go so badly.... it hurts! and I only go a tiny bit...
Is this what a YI is?
Thanks for your help! friday
I am 25 weeks along.. into my 6th month.
Well, seriously honey....it just sounds like you are pregnant lol. You tend to pee a ridiculous amount when you are pg.
The symptoms of a YI are itching, burning sensation during or after peeing, a yellowish thick discharge (tmi). Do you have these as well? If not, then I think your baby is just pushing down on your bladder, causing you to feel like you have to pee all of the time, but only being able to go a tiny bit. It not good, but it goes away! WHen I was working, I felt like I was in the bathroom EVERY time I got up.
He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.
Thanks SO much for clearing this up for me! LOL!! So sorry.....
It is much easier to "hold it" or feel like you don't have to go as much when you are sitting.... as soon as I stand - forget it. Walking around ??? constantly in the bathroom... I have been like this though since the beginning... so embarrassing. if I drink anything and am walking around I can go every 15 min. sometimes as soon as I go - I walk for 3 min. and yep - oh there is that sensation again... maybe I should just wear diapers! I am SO kidding!!!!!
I was at a car dealership yesterday with my husband waiting to pick up his car from an oil change... and I drank a small bottle water before we got there - and the bathroom was located right next to where the company was having an informal sales meeting (before the showroom opened) and I had to pee THREE times in 40 min. the guys just kept watching me w/wide eyes ON ME - WADDLE into the bathroom....
I was OKayed for putting it inside. It didn't do any good though, so I just stopped using it. O_o
If it hurts to pee, and you only pee a tiny bit, it's probably closer to a UTI than a YI. Drink cranberry juice and see if that helps. Both UTIs and YIs are incredibly common when you're preggers so don't worry.
I used a clove of garlic for my yeastys during preggy. I inserted at night asnd retrived (squat and cough ) in the morning. I did this about 5 times through preggy. I once used Monistat inserted in the first month of preggy and had a MC, so I would NEVER use any
other method other then garlic,whcih my doc approved. If you're just a little itchy , cut clove in half and rub on the outside, relieves pain almost immediatly.
