Re: yeast infections

yes, you can still get yeast infections and you're supposed to call the doc (I'm pretty sure) as they each wanted it treated differently (at least according to what I've read on these boards). I've heard of 3 or 4 different methods....

Re: yeast infections

Yes, you can definetly get them. Actually, it's very common for pregnant womem to get them. Don't treat it yourself. You need to call your dr. My ob just gave me a fairly new cream, I was very disappointed to find out that I can't use the oral prescription but the one he gave me seems to be helping.

Re: yeast infections

I have the same problem from time to time. My doc told me to eat lots of yogurt and supplement with acidopholus tablets (you can get those in most supplement sections of stores). Now I hate yogurt.

But it works! And it's much more natural than medications. If that doesn't work, though, I would talk to your OB.

Good luck!

Re: yeast infections

I've found that eating yogurt periodically helps to keep an infection away, and is a good idea in pregnancy when all the extra CM makes it more likely, but once I have a yeast infection, I need the more concentrated acidopholus pills. They do help, though!

Re: yeast infections

I had to treat one of these 3 weeks ago. I was swimming alot over the 4th and wet bathing suit and pg made a breeding ground for yeast My ob had me do monistat 7, but I have started eating yogurt at least 4 times a week, to help with preventing future ones. But every ob is different. The nurse should know at your ob's office how they are usually treated.
Good luck.
