  • Lol I learned that the hard way too! Always take a probiotic when taking an antibiotic. You can use an OTC treatment even when pregnant, that's what your doctor will tell you anyway unless he prescribes something, which will be the same thing anyway. They will probably recommend the 7 day treatment vs the 1 or 3 day though since it's less concentrated.

  • Yeast infections are caused by the killing of good bacteria in your system. That is why we get them when we take antibiotics. It will not be antibiotics you are taking. They will give you something to build up the good bacteria back in your system and rid the yeast in to a proper balance. Eat plain yogurt but first go to your DOC!!
