Diflucan while breastfeeding

Common Questions and Answers about Diflucan while breastfeeding


Avatar f tn i always took diflucan for yeat infections before i got pregnant. fortunately for me, i never had a yeat infection while i was pregnant, so i didn't have to worry about it. however, after i had my son and got my period for the first time, the yeast infections were back. when i called my ob for a prescription for diflucan, they said i could not take it if i was breastfeeding.
Avatar n tn and it may just be the way my body makes milk. (???) I thought that soothies were pacifiers... am I wrong? Is Diflucan safe to take while breastfeeding? If so, should I ask my OB/GYN to call it in for me and take it just in case?
349463 tn?1333575176 this doesn't hurt anymore. It took 6 weeks, but breastfeeding is pain free! After weeks of cracked nipples and mastetis at last I can do this without my toes curling. I'm still pumping and bottle feeding as well, but it's nice to know that I can nurse her without all the drama.
171768 tn?1324233699 Pumping worked fine for a while, then hardly anything was coming out when i was pumping (still breastfeeding also) so i figured my milk supply had dried up and went on to powder, this was after 4 weeks. No one told me that it wasnt an issue with my milk, it was just that the milk pump wasnt strong enough to collect much milk. Had i known this i would have been able to carry on. I was very dissapointed, but i know better for next time.
231441 tn?1333896366 Told her her resident said the sore breasts and red nipples were just from breastfeeding too much, but that I still had an obvious active vaginal thrush infection. Mentioned that I had read on La Leche website that ductal thrush could be very hard to treat and it had mentioned a loading dose followed by daily treatment until there were no symptoms for a week. And what did she advise. She texted back "No! Not daily!
674021 tn?1295493362 My daughter had thrush when she was a newborn as well, and dr. also prescribed Nystatin. It worked, but took a while. I also had to apply some topically to my bbs, because I was breastfeeding. You can keep passing it back and forth!
Avatar n tn Hello again ladies.. question... while I realize that breastfeeding HURTS.. I'm slowly getting used to it. One thing that I can't get used to is that after I finish feeding or pumping.. (I just let my son drink all he wants from one side since he tends not to drink as much if I switch sides) that breast literally burns for a good 15-20 minutes afterwards. At first I thought it was his latch, even though the LC said it was good.. but it happens even when I pump. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn I had taken Diflucan for a week for a possible yeast infection in my mammary glands due to pain while breastfeeding, but it turns out that breastfeeding just hurts. I haven't noticed any improvement, but today my neck has started to itch a bit. Any ideas?

Avatar n tn Do try to keep breastfeeding despite it. The medicine of choice is diflucan probably for at least 2 weeks. You don't need to stop feeding baby while you take it. That drug is approved for neonates ad the amount in your breast milk is much less than they give to babies. You can research online about treatment for "ductal thrush". Thrush can be very difficult to get rid of. baby will need to be treated too.
Avatar f tn Diagnosed with a case of mastitus during breastfeeding, I was given an antibiotic. (Mastitus ended the breastfeeding.) No sooner than I finished the medication...the itching began. After several rounds of OTC yeast med, I saw my ob and he confirmed BV.
Avatar f tn Then, he realized my yeast wasn't clearing up after 4 weeks on Nystatin, so he said hold the Biaxin while I take 10 days of Diflucan. So last night, I took my first doses of Diflucan and Plaquenil. Within an hour I developed a really irritating sore throat and felt really out of it. I also had a return of my air hunger, the worst in at least 3 weeks. Then this morning, I took the Plaq again and felt dizzy, brain fog, air hunger, and increased tinnitus.
157832 tn?1221519379 i had been breastfeeding my daughter previously. i have since stopped that though, as i had to have a nuclear medicine HIDA scan of my gallbladder and the isotopes would trasfer to my daughter. anyway, if this is another uti, as im sure it is, ill get something a little stronger to get rid of it. after reading some more of the posts in here i have noticed that some have also had recurrent uti's. is there a connection between them and other things that im not aware of?
Avatar n tn Unfortunately while pf or breastfeeding you can't use diflucan, but you can use an OTC cream. I have only had one and it was while I was bf and it actually resolved on its own (not before a week of agony, I was't quite sure what it was or what I could take at that point) As this may be your first, I would wait for the doctor to actually diagnose, just to make sure that is what it is.
Avatar f tn I also had a yeast infection, which caused me to have similiar symptoms as you. One dose of diflucan cleared it up.
Avatar f tn By March we were diagnosed with thrush. After that I took A LOT of diflucan over many months which helped while I took it but didn't stop the recurrence after I stopped. Doctors believed that despite us both being medicated, my son and I were just passing the the thrush back and forth. We tried everything they recommended but eventually it caused me to stop breastfeeding.
Avatar n tn prevents pregnancy for 12 weeks doesn't need to be taken daily or put in place before having sex doesn't require surgery contains no estrogen reduces menstrual cramps and anemia protects against endometrial and ovarian cancers can be used while breastfeeding (six weeks after delivery).

Avatar n tn I've opted not to do this. So, I've been living with this condition for a while now. Sometimes it seems that it comes on later in the afternoon almost routine and then it sometimes happens out of the blue in the morning. I try to change my underwear twice a day and don't wear any underwear at nigh for bed. I'm not sure what triggers this...I know about 2.5 years ago I got a really nasty vaginal infection..Then it was treated and I've been tested for STD's all negative.
529933 tn?1228264519 ) So, today while DS was taking his morning nap, I was finally able to get into the garden and weed. Holy cow, I can't believe I let it get that bad!! So when DS goes down for his afternoon nap (about 10 min), I will be back out finishing what I started :) How is everyone doing? Is anyone testing soon or close to O?
Avatar n tn It was treated as a yeast infection with Diflucan and went away. I was fine for a while but then the tears started coming back. I notice that they tend to happen near my period(more moisture?) or after/during sex. I use NuvaRing, which causes a light discharge during the month for me.
Avatar n tn Does anyone think it could be from my hormones due to the pregnancy and breast feeding, or has anyone had similiar syptoms while breast feeding? I'm hoping once I have quit the breastfeeding and gone back on my regular bc pill it will go away...I feel to ashamed to have to call the GYN again and tell her it still hasn't gone away.
686769 tn?1236275731 Still, I am in pain almost daily. Every once in a while I have a good day. I am really having a hard time, mentally and physically. I have always been very active, early to rise and then go go go go... Now, I hate waking up because usually my pain is the most severe in the morning, which keeps me from being able to function. Financially, well...you get it...meds are so expensive. My Doc has been great with any available samples, even so, the expense is outragous!
Avatar n tn used over the counter yeast infection remedies to no avail and was prescribed Diflucan by my internist. Also was prescribed Metrondiazole (antibiotic) and no relief from that. So went to gynecologist and he said it appears to be vulvar dystrophy and he started me on two weeks of topical steroids. I havn't picked it up from the pharmacy yet but am hopeful this will be the answer to my problem.
Avatar m tn The women were randomly given lactobacillus GG capsules or a placebo twice a day for about three weeks before giving birth. After delivery, breastfeeding mothers took the capsules for six months while bottle-fed babies were given the capsules mixed with water. Tthe infants were evaluated at three, six, twelve and twenty-four months. Twenty-three percent of the babies fed the probiotic developed atopic eczema, compared with forty-six percent of those given the placebo.
Avatar n tn My hands itch so bad scratching with my nails and interlocking my finger of both hands and rubbing causes a relief while doing this that reaches a level of cessation. Then 5 minutes later it returns with more intensity. This continues for close to an hour sometimes. By this time my hands are burnng hot and swollen to more than twice their size lasting into the next day. Very hot water helps. You'll know how hot. Then a freezer bag filled with ice. Thats all I can help with.
Avatar n tn I'm 36 and I've been having this issue for a while now after discontinuing the pill last year and getting an IUD. I tried OTC yeast infection meds- didn't help. I tried eating yogurt/kefir more regularly to no avail. I did the OTC pH testing and was in the normal range, and didn't know what else to do. This month, of course, it came back again. After finding the name "cytolitic vaginosis" here, I did some more searching and found this article from an online nursing journal: http://www.
Avatar n tn for the past week or so I have had sporadic runny nose / sneezing (bouts last about a half hour, much like allergic reaction) and my right tonsil has been a bit sore and firm. I am breastfeeding and my baby likes to touch my lips while nursing. Sometimes baby has a rough or jagged fingernail; I think baby may have irritated my skin and maybe introduced an infection. My sleeping is irregular but I usually get at least 6 hours per night.
