  • You can try eating yogurt. The live cultures can help it go away, it also can be applied externally (helps with the itch) I would use plain obviously. I know gross, but I always eat a ton of yogurt when I have taken an antibiotic and I don't get yeast infections anymore. Also, the extra calcium will do you and baby good.

  • Yes you can take vagsil Yeast is very common but the yogurt does work. Check with your doctor as well because he can let you know what it could be causing the infections.

  • Make sure to check with your OB first. Always check with your OB before doing anything. Most OTC meds will tell you to refer to your doc before taking it.

  • My doc just told me pregnant women should stay away from Monistat. She told me to take Clotrimazole based 7 day cream treatments. Though I'm looking up natural ways, and I've found yogurt and garlic as pretty good options (I have neither in the house right now lol)
