  • it is very common as it is caused by pregnancy hormones, i got a yeast infection and went to the doctor, they should prescribe you some pills for that , they gave me a one time pill and yeast infection went away and never came back since then, maybe the internal creams are not as effective! go to your doctor :) and dont worry but have it treated soon.

  • eat atleast one yogurt a day the bacteria in the yogurt helps kill the yeast.

  • see if your doctor can give you a medication for it thats what helped me, its important to get that taken care of, or you can have the same problem as me, because of my yeast infection i ended up passing it to my baby, he had yeast infection in his month when he was born its called thrush, and it was sad because it was painful for him to eat till it got better. good luck, you are almost done ya!
