  • A yeast infection is caused by an imbalance of PH "down there" that allows bacteria that normally would not grow, to flourish. During pregnancy, your body is changing so much that it is easy to have the normal PH balance to be thrown off. Hope this helps and good luck!

  • All I know is I never get yeast infections.. except when I'm pregnant! And when I am pregnant I get them almost constantly.. this time around I've probably had like 5-6.. they just keep coming back! LoL thankfully after this baby, we won't be having another for at least 5 years.. (then again I said that the first time, and got PG on birth control.. lol)
