Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics yeast pregnancy


1472764 tn?1287591786 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.
9771234 tn?1405797408 Most antibiotics are safe during pregnancy. If you told your primary Dr that you were pregnant they would've chosen meds safe for you. I've been on them twice so far and I'm almost 29 weeks and baby is great.
Avatar f tn 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 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.
Avatar n tn 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!!
203342 tn?1328740807 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.
Avatar f tn I developed a yeast around 8 weeks of pregnancy tried monistat and it burned like crazy so i only used it that one night out of 7. The dr said to try and let it go on its own. Now at 13 weeks pregnant symptoms are starting to arise again and i was preacribed terconazole. Just so many horrible things about it online that it scares me. Took the first dose laat night. Anyone have experience with yeast infections durimg prwgnancy and this med?
Avatar n tn so,i am worried,is my baby safe?is it dangerous to have a yeast infection in such an early pregnancy?
304970 tn?1331429594 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!
Avatar f tn Certain things like pregnancy, diabetes, or antibiotics use can disrupt this balance and cause an overgrowth of yeast which leads to a yeast infection.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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'!

Avatar f tn 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>.
Avatar f tn -) it would stink to spend money on all that yeast infection stuff if you just need some antibiotics.
Avatar f tn 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?
1697869 tn?1306770443 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!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn 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
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar f tn I know this is going to sound weird.... but I was sick and given antibiotics that were safe to take while pregnant...but they gave me a yeast infection that kinda hurts...I'm in a relationship with a soldier who's been gone for awhile and let's just say we are definitely probably headed to the bedroom...Is it safe to have sex with a yeast infection?
242143 tn?1215473908 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!
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn It's common to get a yeast infection during pregnancy, especially if you're on antibiotics. Ask your doctor about which cream to use... I'm not sure which ones are safe.
Avatar f tn your doctor will prescribe the right antibiotics to take
Avatar f tn I went to the ER for and ingrown toenail infection and the doctors put me on antibiotics safe for the baby, and now I have a yeast infection.. and I have a doctor's appointment Monday for the pap smear and all that jazz. The question is have any of y'all ladies ever had a yeast infection while being pregnant, or from a pregnancy in the past, recent or your current pregnancy now... and how did you get it to go away? Also can it do damage to your baby?
Avatar f tn 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.
