  • You can get nystatin over the counter. Go get some and you should have relief in 24 hrs and it should be gone in 3 days.

  • Monistat is definitely safe to use. I had the same issue during my pregnancy, adn made sure to ask the doctor about what was safe. The baby doesn't get any of the ointment even though you are injecting it into your vagina, though you might have a hard time reaching that area if you are really large in your pregnancy. It doesn't get in your blood stream to affect your baby, so rest easy, and just use it!!! you need relief.
