Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics yeast pregnancy

antibiotics

10 days of azythromyocin. 1 pill a day. Dr. said its safe for pregnancy. I'm also taking probiotics to counteract yeast. Has anyone else been in this situation? Was your pregnancy and baby okay? I'm so worried.
Also, avoid foods/drink with a great deal of sugar, as sugar feeds the yeast in your body and since the antibiotics kill the flora, yeast will grow like crazy (mainly in your vagina, causing recurrent yeast infections). I would encourage you to google gentlebirth.org and search for UTI. There are many suggestions from midwives on there and there is a TON of advice, I'm sure you can find something that would work for you.
My OBGYN prescribed Flagyl Oral to treat the BV but now I think it gave me a yeast infection (which I am very prone to when taking antibiotics). What over the counter yeast infection meds are safe to use during pregnancy? Thanks for your help!!
I had several during pregnancy with DD because of all the antibiotics I took for my kidney infections.....I used the monistat cream and I was fine. I wouldn't use the pill either. I'm pretty sure you can just have her use the over-the-counter creams and it'll clear up right away, it always did for me. Also have her eat LOTS of yogurt while she's taking the amoxicillin it'll keep the yeast infection from coming back/getting worse.
so,i am worried,is my baby safe?is it dangerous to have a yeast infection in such an early pregnancy?
I had a horrible yeast infection last month that lasted a whole week! Prior to pregnancy, I had only ever had a yeast infection once, and it was antibiotic caused, so I discontinued the antibiotics and it went away almost immediately (within a day or so!)! Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to get rid of it faster that monistat? It is AWFUL!
I took antibiotics for a urine infection and then developed a yeast infection. Some antibiotics alter your good/bad bacteria levels and this is when a yeast infection can occur. I had BV late on in pregnancy. Its very common. What you describe is perfectly normal. Dont worry yourself about HIV. Your stressin'!
yesterday at my appointment i was found to have a yeast infection. i just got my antibiotics this morning but my midwife says to take it at night to minimus leakage. this is my first yeast infection and its terrible!!! i feel raw, it is very swollen, and it itches like crazy. I'm not sure what to do what the symptoms until tonight. i saw that yogurt helps but I'm not really down for that. i have to go to schooland i need help. any advice??
Do you happen to know what class of antibiotics that drug is in? There is a new study just published by the CDC that looked at two specific classes of antibiotics and pregnancy: sulfanamides ("sulfa drugs") and nitrofurantoins. Please keep in mind that even where certain antibiotics have been linked to negative effects on the fetus, it isn't a given. It just means that certain drugs pose a higher risk-- it doesn't mean that if you took them your baby will for sure have problems.
Why is yeast infections so common in women and how often can a woman be infected as well as some preventative measures that can be taken? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/280203'>Vagina swelling</a>.
-) it would stink to spend money on all that yeast infection stuff if you just need some antibiotics.
I have a serious question, i went to the hospital for a uti, and i've been taking my antibiotics since then, and now my vag, tmi, sorry, is burning extremely bad, and i've been putting the yeast infection cream on it but can i use the applicators that go inside too?
Now, looking back I'm really really afraid I may have hurt my baby (I'm 9 weeks now) I understand that I had to take it or it the strep could have hurt the baby. Now, to top it all off, I got a yeast infection from the antibiotics and I don't know what to do. I'm mortified at the idea of taking another medicine. HELP!!!!!!!!!!
I just got done with both of those infections and it drove me crazy but its very common in pregnancy I never used the monistat 7 while pregnant but I don't cause pre term labor but the infection can well that's what I was told so it has to be treated as soon as possible
I had Yeast infection in my 2nd trimester and i went to the doctor...they prescribed an over the counter cream...I got it again in my 3rd trimester...embarrass to go to doctor again but should i still go or just get the over the counter cream.... Have any of you ladies got yeast infection more than once?
Do any of you know if I can use Monistat for a yeast infection? I was on antibiotics for a sinus infection and the doc told me that it might bring on a yeast infection...and of course, it did. :( He did tell me that Monistat was ok during pregnancy..I guess I just wanna know if it's really ok.. Thanks!
Yeast infections caused from antibiotics are very common, I'd definitely talk to your doctor about it but a yeast infection is nothing to worry about!
Hey moms, any of you ladies experience yeast infections during pregnancy?I'm currently having one and it seems more extreme than the normal one.. what are the best brand for meds and how did you guys treat yours?didn't happen more than once during pregnancy?
your doctor will prescribe the right antibiotics to take
Yes I took antibiotics several times throughout my pregnancy and even in my first trimester. I had a serious problem with vaginosis and then yeast infections because of the antibiotics. It was a vicious circle. K-bug is a very healthy 9 month old now.
a green tint (or bad smell, for future reference) is a sign that it is more than just a yeast infection. Also, antibiotics kill bacteria that keeps the low levels of yeast naturally found in your body from getting out of control. this makes it easier to get yeast infections (like the one on your leg). I'm really not sure about your missed period sweetie, but a trip to the doc will fix the first two problems! Good Luck!
I called the Nurse Practitioner and she told me to continue the Antibiotics but it is causing a severe yeast infection. Can I use Monistat to help with the yeast infection and drink cranberry juice for the urninary tract infection? I am approx. 3 months pregnant and in pretty good health. I have been dx with HPV but the bx has shown no cancer. I don't think the N.P. or Doctor understands how bad this is for me and causing me to be uncomfortable.
omg i hate yeast infections. i used monistat cream which helped me alot i used the 7 day one though because i heard the 0ne day or was it the 2 day one that was really strong.
I'm just really scared about it and no to top it all off, I think I have a yeast infection from the antibiotics!!! What do I do? Has anyone else been through this. I'm so very upset!!!!
I'd go to the doctor to get it Checked out and antibiotics for the yeast infection. Also you shouldn't use your moms med, especially a vaginal topical cream as that can spread infection as well. Hope you get everything figures out soon!
Depends on how far along u are. I've had trouble with yeast infections throughout my pregnancy & was always told over the counter meds were fine, but during first trimester to only insert tube halfway. Also I found that spending the extra $ on the name brand was worth it, it works much better. And only use seven day cream, 3day & 1day were too strong & could soften ur cervix.
Yeast infections are common in pregnancy. Most women get at least 1 when they're pregnant. It's not an STD at all. It won't go away by itself, it will just get worse and harder to shift if left untreated. Best to speak to your doctor/midwife about it and they'll give you a prescription to treat it. You need to be careful, sometimes the treatments for yeast infections can be different when you're pregnant so always best advising your doctor first.
