Re: Another yeast infection question
Often yeast infections are more persistant when you're pregnant, so you need to use a 7-night treatment instead of a 1 or 3 night treatment. I've always used Monistat for my yeast infections.
Bring it up to your doc when you see him. It is likely he can prescribe you something to take to help with the yeast infection.
I've been taking acidophilus pills daily throughout pregnancy to prevent yeast infections, and it does seem to be helping some. I've had one yeast infection so far while pregnant (I'm 24 weeks). If I don't take acidophilus daily, I pretty much have constant yeast infections. Mine are similar to yours; rarely, I get discharge, mostly I just itch like crazy. Yogurt helps too, but I've found I have to eat it daily for it to work; skipping a day or 2 is like begging the infection to come back and sometimes it's just inconvenient to have to eat yogurt daily or I don't have taste for it. My OB was fine with me taking acidophilus daily throughout pregnancy as he feels it's better than fighting constant yeast infections.
Another thing that helps is shaving your pubic hair. Or if not shaving it, trimming it with electric clippers because a lot of moisture can get trapped down there and that is the type of environment yeast prefers. Also be sure to always wear 100% cotton panties; that can help prevent future infections.
