I need help! (Beware it's extremely personal)

Posted by   + Show Post

Hey, I am the mommy to a beautiful 9 month old little girl, Sophie. I am now pregnant with my 2nd (a little boy). I have this reocurring problem and just needed some help. IF YOU CAN. The entire 39 weeks of my pregnancy with Sophie, i had a bad Bacterial Infection and Yeast Infection. Tried multiple medicines. Even talked to my OB. We tried so many solutions, which didnt help. I couldnt have sex because the pain was so bad. It took me 3+ months after Sophie to get the courage to have sex, and it wasnt painful at all. I didnt have the itching or burning anymore either! Now that i am pregnant again, i have the symptoms again of the BI and YI. Is it just my body reacting to all the hormones? Will i experience this the whole pregnancy again? Will i get these every time i get pregnant? Please help!

Have you tried probiotics??? I have read that if you use coconut oil as a lube during sex it helps clear yeast infections

If I told you what I went through with my second pregnancy you would be happy with yourself lol. It's normal and may be something you get with every pregnancy or maybe not.

Feel better! Avoid salty foods or ones that are highly acidic.

Definitely take probiotics if you aren't already.  And go for the good stuff, none of this 1-2 billion cells dose.  Start at 10, if no change increase slowly.  If you start having diarrhea or stomach cramps decrease dosage.

Have you tried garlic in your vagina?

sounds like it's deff the hormones that are doing it, and it happens to more women than you think (I never got a UTI till I was preg with DD2, then I got it twice and again when I was preg with DD3). Hormones can do horrible things to your body =0( Hope it doesn't last the entire pregnancy and/or you can figure something out.

I had this happen every pregnancy since my c-section...  (so two) I just couldn't take it anymore and did a crap ton of research and ended up buying a supplement called D-mannose. You can get it on Amazon and in pill or powder form. Honest to God, ever since starting it I have not had a single infection! (You may be able to look up my posts on here complaining about the pain and infections etc just to make sure I am not lyin! ;)

I would HIGHLY recommend trying it and seeing if it works for you. I did everything right and still happened to me. This changed my entire feeling of being preggo again. The powder is *slighty* sweet when mixed in water and you will know after about a week or 2 if its working for you. My hubby seriously just went online and bought me two more bottles to last through the pregnancy. He appreciates it also because we can now have sex without me feeling like dying!

Stop taking the prenatal for a few days and see what happens!

(I'm for taking the vitamin, bust just in case)
