Re: Yeast Infection..HELP!

I totally hear you! I just went through this last week. I talked with my midwife and she said she recommends the 3 days of monistat cream (NOT suppository). I had an appointment with her the day after I used the 3rd day of treatment and it still felt a little itchy. She said sometimes you need to retreat with the 3 day to get a total of 6 days, but by the next day I was feeling much better!

GO TO THE STORE AND GET SOME RELIEF NOW!

I posted a question on it before I was able to get ahold of my MD and lots of momma's posted their natural home remedies there...

outside only? My midwife said the cream inside was okay, but that the suppository wasn't... at least that's how I understood it. ... I didn't know you could get only cream for the outside. I ~used~ the internal cream stuff and no ill effects... baby is very active and last appointment was good... and the infection is gone!

Re: Yeast Infection..HELP!

I got yeast infections alot with my pregnancy. Mostly because of GD. They always happened when my blood sugar went high. I was alway told to use the 7 day treatment from over the counter cream. It always worked. There is one that is really cheap that is behind the rx counter that you don't need a precription for. It is only like 6.00. It's the one that insurance sometimes will pay for or not. But it is available to all people with out a prescription and it is creaper then the one you buy off of the shelf you just have to ask the people behind the counter for it.
Hope this helps!!

Re: Yeast Infection..HELP!

I've been on antibiotics for over 3 weeks now and I make sure I eat a yogurt a day to keep away any ill effects. For a few days I could tell I was getting a yeast infection so I went to eating 3 yogurts a day for about 4 days and it went away. Hope you get/got some relief!

I am the yeast queen, especially when pregnant. You can go to the health food store or your local walmart and buy Tea Tree oil. Put some on your fingers and I think you get the rest. It's strong but it works, and safe for baby. You can also take a bath in it. Relaxing and relives the itching.
