Okay this is really embarressing for me but here it goes. On the 24th I thought my water broke but it turns out I just started leaking. (I am 30 weeks along.) So I was pumped full of antibotics and shots and IV stuff and was sent home. Well on the 26th I started to feel irritated down there and so since I had a appt with the ob that day I asked him to presribe me a antibotic for a blatter infection which I thought I had at the time because some nurse mentioned that I had a slight one when I was in the hospital on the 24th. So my ob presribed me Keflex. So I have been taking two of those twice a day. Well even since Monday the irritation has gotten worse. And when I checked myself in the mirror yesterday and today I saw like white discharge. I know TMI I am so sorry. I have another ob appt on Tuesday but I dont think I can last another four days like this and I dont want to take a otc drug because of my pregnancy and complications. I am seriously thinking about going to the ER with this especially since I am leaking water and I dont want this to get to my baby and make a worse infection. WWYD?

Start eating a ton of yogurt and garlic and call your doctor ASAP. He should be able to call in a script for you to clear it up, unless he wants to check you first. Antibiotics have the nasty habit of causing yeast infections :(

You probably do have yeast infection. You mention being on a lot of antibiotics? This will kill off healthy bacteria which leads to a yeast infection. Please don't wait it will get worse ( been there done that) go to doc ASAP.

Garlic. Even apply to the area (I know it sounds weird, but it does work)

With the water membrane ruptured already, if it is a yeast infection it puts baby at greater risk for getting an infection considering there is not much of a barrier protecting it now. especially this early in pregnancy I would definitely go! Please don't take this lightly, happened to me 4 years ago and I almost lost my son!

Avoiding interventions and meds is usually safest.     You can do the garlic remedies and work to seal your leak.
Keep in mind the sid-effects & risks with antibiotics, as well.

GL!
