  • You can use a monistat OTC. I would just check with the on call doc. I was told to use the 3 day one. But check to make sure it is okay. They all think differently.

  • they sell a test at the pharmacy so that you can test at home to make sure it's yeast before treating.

    If it's yeast, then go buy the yeast infection treatment. do NOT use the 3 day one if you are pregnant. only the 7 days or longer ones. the 3 day is too strong for pregnancy.

  • I went to the ER. And they gave me the medicine from the pharmacy there. I was told to not take anything over the counter for it when your pregnant. And they gave me the 7 day creme.
