  • I just saw my OB thinking I had a yeast infection and was told I don't have one, so be careful using medications you don't need. I have irritation and all of that fun stuff, but no yeast infection (or bacterial infection)

    Monistat one day works pretty well, but it can take up to 7 days to fully take effect.

  • It's not gross it's part of life as a woman. Do the above and eat lots of unsweetened yogurt. Sweeten with fruit.

  • Get a prescription from your doctor. Don't self medicate.

  • i wouldn't bother going to the dr. he'll just say monistat lol. and yes, eating lots of yogurt helps alot. if you try the yogurt first you might not even need the medicine..... gl. you might get yeast infections frequently while pregnant.
