Angry yeast infections

I think I have a yeast infection, but it's too late in the day to call my doc and ask what I can use. Can I use any old regular cream?

Re: yeast infections

When I got a yeast infection during my pregnancy my Dr. had me get regular old Monistat...the 7 day treatment though. If your not completely sure though maybe you can call the OB/Triage unit at the hospital you plan to deliver at and ask for their opinion?

Re: yeast infections

I would call the doctor and have them check you out. I had a yeast infection (was prepared for it since I had just finished antibiotics and the doctor warned me), but I also had bacterial vaginosis, which can cause pre-term labor. I had no idea, but was really glad I went in to get it checked out instead of just doing the Monistat 7-day that my doctor told me about when she anticipated the yeast infection.

Re: yeast infections

yes, the over the counter staff is safe, but use the 7day one, it's concentration is spread over more days, so it's supposed to be safer then the 1 day applications, and of course be sure you don't push it in too high up.
