Natural remedies for yeast infections while pregnant

Common Questions and Answers about Natural remedies for yeast infections while pregnant


Avatar n tn There are some natural things you can try, I had a few with my first pregnancy and the midwife on staff gave me natural remedies that worked fabulous for me. She upped my probiotic foods and had me cut sugar down. There are also some weekly rinses you can try to keep your levels even downstairs. Try googling something's and talking to your OB about it better yet get ahold of a midwife they are Way more likely to help you prevent and avoid meds.

Avatar f tn What is ok to take for a yeast infection? I don't go to the Dr. Til Tuesday. I heard the one time fluconazole pill cause birth defects. Don't know how true it is just wanna be safe. Or should I try monistat 7. Im scared to take any kind of pills while pregnant I don't even take Tylenol I use home remedies. Im a ftm & curious.
Avatar f tn If you have a yeast infection the doc told me that Monstat is good to use while pregnant but I would have it checked out by the doc 1st b/c that's what I thought I had 2 & it wasn't that. I had Bacterial Vaginouses. Don't ask what that is I have no clue. I get the weirdest things down below. I am always getting UTI's and I was tested positive for the Group B Strep too. Lucky me, right.
Avatar n tn Yeast, most commonly of the candida albicans species, reside naturally in warm, moist areas, like the vagina. When conditions allow, for example, when the body's natural pH balance is upset, yeast can begin to grow profusely, thus causing a yeast infection. It is possible to transfer yeast to a sexual partner. Until the yeast are gone, they can take up residence in your urethra and/or mouth and throat (in a healthy adult, oral yeast is very rare).
Avatar f tn Boric acid: You can use boric acid suppository capsules as they are good at treating yeast infections, in particular those that have been caused by non-albicans species of yeast, but unfortunately boric acid can create an unsavory and painful vaginal burning, it should never be swallowed as it is highly toxic and therefore should not be used all the time and definitely should not be used if you are pregnant.
Avatar f tn Also regular Greek yogurt it has to be cold once it dries up wash it off at least 3 times a day or insert it into your vagina wear a pad n it will bring down the yeast n wash up you may want to get a big bucket bc being pregnant you can continuously have yeast infections
Avatar n tn Have you been checked for diabetes? One of the symptoms of diabetes is reocurring yeast infections. I do feel for you. I get about one a year and that's enough to put me over the edge. I hope you are able to get it taken care of.
Avatar n tn Birth control is another cause for recurrent yeast infections. Also, chronic antibiotic therapy can also be a risk factor for recurrent yeast infections. Sometimes combining the prescription therapy with the over the counter topical cream will clear up the infection. I really feel for you. Two months of a yeast infection was enough to drive me crazy. I can't imagine having one for six months. I really hope it clears up soon.
Avatar f tn To help prevent them just try to wear really breathable cotton panties and keep the area as dry as possible. yeast grows quickly in warm moist areas... I looked up some home remedies/preventions for yeast infections and this is what it gave me..and they seem kind of...weird..I don't know if I would use them but hey! lol Good luck!
Avatar n tn I was so scared to go and tell him, but he told me that when a woman (some) do not have sex for a long time, and then they do have sex they are prone to yeast infections, there was a name for it, I forget actually, its a word like Virgin Infection, or Brides' something............ Anyways, this is a pain in the butt for sure........
Avatar n tn I was once told by my Pharmacist that eating yogurt while on certain antibiotics can cause some wicked yeast infections.. Just some food for thought.
Avatar n tn There is tons of information on the internet if you do a google search - (healing yeast infections naturally) (garlic and yeast infections) (tea tree and yeast infections) and check out probiotics and yeast infections too while your searching. Good luck and happy healing!
Avatar n tn you might want to talk to you DR about trying something for a bacterial infection like cleocin because sometimes bacterial infections are mistaken for yeast. Terazol used to work for me sometimes, but not aleays. Good luck and I hope you're feeling better.
Avatar n tn I read on the internet that Hydrogen Peroxide mixed with water [homemade douche] was a good natural way to cure yeast infections. Have you ever heard anything on that one? With my first yeast infection a few months back the doctor gave me a prescription for the 7 day cream Terazole. That didn't bother me at all. Even the cream that came with the Monistat 1 day combo pack for the outside seemed to irritate me when I put it on.
Avatar n tn I believe this problem has existed for me for a VERY long time. Long history of bladder infections and vaginal infections. Regular bladder medications would not work. Erythomycin (spelling?) was given after culture showed "different bacteria" in urine. Uncircumsized husband started having penile irriations after sex with me. Long history of vaginal redness during period with external skin effects.
Avatar f tn ive never had any diseases or even a yeast infection but for the last week i can smell onion down there?What could be wrong?
Avatar f tn My stomach bloat started while pregnant and has not gone away. And this is something very unusual for me. At first I thought it was a wheat problem. I cut wheat out of my diet, but after about a month of going wheat-free the symptoms came back. I had heard from a Dr. Oz show about oil of oregano doing wonders for eczema so I thought I'd give it a shot. My symptoms of not only eczema, but the bloat seem to be decreasing.
Avatar n tn WRONG. For 4 weeks I did not weigh myself while I pressed on with my plan (as I can be a bit of a scale watcher). But after 4 weeks of not weighing myself, taking in less carbs, and exercising I knew I was not progressing... could just FEEL the stagnation. Well, I finally DID weigh myself just 4 days ago and durning that 4 week cycle I not only showed zero progress I ACTUALLY GAINED 15 POUNDS!!!!!! That's right - 15 in 4 weeks! I've never gained like this in my life!!
Avatar f tn You have to do that for a few days. It helps when you have yeast infections or to prevent yeast infections.
Avatar n tn Its has natural probotics that help your intestinal tract, and its also good for your va-jay-jay in preventing yeast infections (common in pregnancy) that could cause premature birth or worse. It is HIGHLY if you bring it up to your doctor that you would be interested in taking it, they would think you're a smart cookie!!! Good luck! PS- Its 2:30 am for me. I was having MAJOR gas cramps. I took the acidophilus pill and the pain has ceased. give it 20 to 30 min.
Avatar n tn Within days, I felt better than I had felt in years. Then, 2 weeks later, I got pregnant for the first time. My husband and I had been trying for a while. I have a beautiful 8 month old now. Also, I had become intolerant of several foods, such as all dairy, and now I can tolerate these foods again. Just not gluten. And I was totally unaware of the problem before I went gluten free (could not see any connection between how I was feeling and the consumption of gluten).
Avatar n tn Hello, Like all of you, I struggled for years with chronic mysterious infections that were classified as either BV or yeast. I was tested for every STD under the sun and never had any of them. I was given every possible prescription for BV and yeast infections and absolutely nothing helped. I continued having chronic yellow or clear discharge, often very heavy especially after my period. After years of suffering I found something that truly changed everything for me.
Avatar n tn I have even been in and out of the doctor for yeast infections and other things since I was 5! It really sucks. It actually quit for about 7 months and I thought it just wasn't going to do i anymore but them about a month in a half ago it started up again just only worse!!!!! My doctors don't help I just get pills and creme and that really dosen't help!

676912 tn?1332816151 Its okay to ask questions dont worry :). I atm have smelly wee... its dark and I went to my docs based on your post last time and my back pain thought it might be my kidneys (I remember stuff sometimes haha) And I was told its normal. The best thing to do is go back to your doc and say look a few weeks ago I was diagnosed with BV... and it went away, now I think it has come back, What can/shall I do? Even though your going oct 12, what did theyy do last time you had it?
Avatar n tn I haven't had to do these for a long time, but I used to have a lot of yeast infections when I was in high school and I remember how incredibly itchy and painful and horrible they were! :( I found out that mine were because of the birth control pills that I was taking.
