Just found out that I am pregnant & haveing some itching?

Could I have a yeast infection? If so, can I treat it over the counter or doI need to see a Dr? I haven't even been to the Dr. for a urine test yet.

  • I would get checked out first to make sure it is a yeast infection. But you can use garlic cloves if it is. For 3 nights use a garlic clove in that area. Put it in at night and take it out in the morning. I always thread a thread through it. So I can easily get it out.

  • It's common during pregnancy to have yeast infections, your hormones are crazy, things are changing and sometimes out of whack. Talk to your doctor first, make sure that it is a yeast infection, and they will usually tell you which course of treatment is the best for pregnancy, i.e. 7 day, 5 day, 3 day or 1 day.

  • Make an appointment and get it tested first. Then the dr. can tell you what to use from there. Sometimes they have a cream you can use.

  • Over-the-counter yeast infection treatments are safe to use while you're pregnant. If the doctor can't see you right away, it can't hurt to go ahead and treat it (and it won't hurt your baby either)
