  • If it goes untreated, it is not good, but lots of women get yeast infections while pregnant without any sort of complications. Just ask your doctor what he wants you to do to treat it, and make sure you get a glass of cranberry juice in your system daily to keep your whole urinary tract healthy. Also, wearing cotton panties and using panty liners or just changing them often can help. Yeast infections are pretty common because women can be pretty constatnly moist down there while pregnant.

  • YES IT CAN IF IT IS LEFT UN TREATED!! GO TO YOUR DOCTOR! BUT DON'T WORRY IT IS NOT A HUGE DEAL. RELAX YOUR STRESS WILL HURT YOUR BABY FAR MORE THAN THE YEAST INFECTION!
