  • no you are not supposed to use anything liek that without your dr oking it first.
    and you should be checked for infection because you may not have the normal signs of one but still have one.

  • Actually, I had one when I was pregnant and my doctor prescribed some for me but only to put on the outside. But, he actually examined me fist. SO, if you are sure it is a yeast infection, apply just a little to the outside just to get some relief and call your doctor in the morning.

  • If you tell your doctor they should give u something, or atleast a Rx for it, I had the same thing with my second and they gave me a Rx for it.
