TMI But need to know

I think I have a yeast infection. Really itchy and burning but no discharge. (I have only ever had one other yeast infection and it had no discharge) I am 30 weeks 5 days pregnant. What can I take that is safe? I will eat yogurt for the natural cultures and know I can add acidophilis already but I am afraid that will not be enough. Can I take like a monistat or vagisil?

  • Yes hon it's all safe to take. Just watch to make sure you are keeping everything sterile-like the applicator and stuff. My doc said the treatments were safe. Go get them now-so u can stop suffering.

  • I had a yeast infection when I was pregnant and my doctor just told me to get some cheap over the counter cream (the Walmart brand of Vagisil or whatever) and it worked fine.

  • I meant to add that the OTC stuff is fine-you only need the script stuff if it willnot go away,get the 3-day stuff it works best and make sure it comes w/external cream too.
