  • your pregnant?
    that is weird they would tel you to get that i have always heard to never use the over the counter meds like that . i always got a antibiotic from my dr.

    if they said for you to then id say the 7 day so its not as strong all at once ya know .

  • I would get your husband to talk to the pharmacist. Get him to tell them you are pregnant and have the symptoms for a yeast infection. The pharmacy should be able to tell him what is better for you. I have also heard that the 7 day is better to use when you are pregnant.

  • I am going through the same thing. My OB called me in a generic 7 day treatment and I bought a 1 day pack. The pharmacist told me they didn't feel comfortable answering that question because I am pregnant. My OB said this is a normal thing and the baby is safe. I have never had a y-infect before so looking at this kit and reading instructions I am scared. Good Luck.
