yeast infection or not?

Did anyone else have what seems to be a yeast infection as an early symptom of pregnancy? I have every other classic symptom but now this. If it is a symptom do I treat it or will it go away?

treat it. You can use an OTC.

Treat it. I would personally use whole peeled garlic cloves and follow that with some unflavored yogurt. They work and won't have potential to harm baby like OTC meds.

At this point I've tried everything. I went last night to get the unflavored unsweetened yogurt but I can't find it. Walmart had unflavored but it has sugar in it and the internet says not to use that. What kind did u use?

Why not call your dr? I'd rather find out for sure. It may just be increased preg discharge. Is there it hung and burning?

Don't ever hesitate to call your doctor, midwife or health care team with any questions or concerns you may have or comments you don't understand. They are there to educate and inform you ~ that's their job!!! And always ~ and trust your gut...xo

I used Monistat and ended up with a reaction that resulted in chemical Burns. I swear that stuff is poison! I have been taking large doses of garlic and acidopolis and I seem to be on the mend. Thanks for the advice ladies!

I use a probiotic every day and that helps A TON! I thought I was getting one with this pregnancy, but it was gone before the symptoms got bad. My biggest piece of advice for people is take probiotics!
