Vaginal yeast infections are common in pregnant
women, likely caused by the high hormone levels. Treatment to cure a yeast infection during pregnancy
may take longer.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend
s that only vaginal medications, such as creams or vaginal suppositories, be used for yeast infection treatment during pregnancy
. Pregnant women should not use nonprescription medications without first discussing their symptoms with their health professional.
