Are frequent yeast infections during pregnancy normal?

I had one towards the beginning of my pregnancy, then I felt like I had another one a few weeks ago so I used an OTC treatment and felt fine but now I feel like Im getting one again! I will be asking my doctor, just curious if anyone else experienced this?

  • Yes they are normal as well as Bladder and Kidney Infections. It's a pain in the azz, but just go to your doctor and he can prescribe you something that will be safe for pregnancy.

  • Yes they are normal, but you shouldn't self diagnose yourself, see the Doctor before you try over the counter remedies, especially while you're pregnant.

  • I had a lot with my first daughter. Eat yogurt. Your hormones are all crazy, that is why it happens. If you have sex, have him pull out and try to keep your southern areas dry.
