Third trimester YI. What to use?

This is the worst yeast infection I have ever had. My bits are so swollen I can't insert anything into my hooha, so yogurt tampons and garlic-on-a-string are out. I've been doing yogurt externally to try to calm things down, but it doesn't seem to be improving it burns and itches like mad! I tried TTO just a bit ago, and it felt okay at first and then started burning is there anything else I can do (that is safe in the 3rd tri) without going to the dr? I'm gonna eat a bunch of probiotic yogurt tonight too, in hopes that it will help :/

Re: Third trimester YI. What to use?

To help with the external symptoms I would take vinegar baths then dry off with a hair dryer. I was unable to get rid of my yeast infection until birth. This was with baby #2. I had a yeast infection from the beginning of the second trimester until birth. As soon as baby was born symptoms disapeared. I had tried everything I could think of. I was able to keep it from getting worse. I just wasn't able to get rid of it.

I can't use Monistat as it burns my skin really bad, especially while pregnant. There is a probiotic cream OTC that is near the YI stuff in the pharmacy. That works like a charm for me.

Re: Third trimester YI. What to use?

My yeast infection actually got worse using Monistat. When I was pregnant with baby #3 I used Candex. http://www.swansonvitamins.com/q?kw=...agement+system I bought from this sight but prices have gone up since I last purchased from them.

Re: Third trimester YI. What to use?

Pearls YB or RePhresh probiotics, I had a bad yeast infection a couple of months ago and it was much better in just a couple of days, no Monistat needed. I did use some Lotrimin topically to help since I had some left from using it on my baby.

Re: Third trimester YI. What to use?

I added probiotics to plain greek yogurt. I had just used the yogurt and it was not working alone. Are you 100% sure it is yeast? My Dr. said there is a bacteria you can get while pg that is more common around the third tri that mimics a yeast infection. NOT an STD. I can't remember what he called it, but left untreated has the potential to cause preterm labor. It is something naturally occurring in the vaginal tract.

Re: Third trimester YI. What to use?

I know you said you can't put anything up there, but even Monistat is a vaginal suppository. When I've started to feel itchy, I put a couple probiotic capsules (the kind with powder inside) up there like a suppository. As far as I can tell they dissolved just fine b/c I never saw them again! And the itching stopping!

if it's not getting better it may not be a yeast infection...it may be bateria vaginosis (or whatever that is called)...I'd get in to your dr and get it checked out. BV can cause PT labor
