  • Yes I have it seemed to work somewhat but I had such bad repeated yeast infections my entire pregnancy I do not know why I do not have high blood sugar or anything and never had one until pregnancy it was probably hormonal. Towards the end the natural things just were not working so i used monistat or something my obgyn gave it to me I think I was 35 weeks along. I know some say its not safe to use the beginning of the pregnancies.

  • You can also go to your health food store and get some acidophiles its a pro biotic that helps balance your ph levels. It acts like yogurt without having to eat it

  • you can go to the health food store and get a womens blend probiotic that has specific bacteria for the vagina.
    also, you may want to cut way back on the sugar for now.
    good luck!
    they make all natural yeast infection stuff, you could ask your dr. about that.
