I'm 27wks pregnant and my ob asked me to use it but just wanted to check if any other person has used it.If you had a yeast infection while pregnant please what did you use and where there anyside effects?

Yes I have. I think as long as you are in the second or third trimester (I was) then it is very safe. I had no problems with it and it helped very quickly. Answered by Marnie Quinney 6 months ago.

Gyne-Lotrimin or Mycelex (clotrimazole) Gynezol or Femstat (butoconazole) Monistat (miconazole nitrate) Vagistat-1 (tioconazole) Answered by Krystin Daguio 6 months ago.
even though there are many over the counter medications that might be able to help or cure the yeast infection it would still be better to go to a clinic. for the best care you can get is from a Dr i don't believe it always be best to go to a Dr but this may be something else that can be more serious then just a infection. i work in the medical and law field i would just say for your own health and well being i recommend a clinic. modern meds do work btw its just how well ppl use them in the fact that infections are living bacteria that do grow and mutates like virus and when ppl dont use meds correctly you are making the bacteria tolerance to the medication stronger.

I am sure I have a yeast infection and I told my doctor about it today. I am about 29 weeks pregnant and want to know what are safe medications to treat yeast infections with that will not harm my baby. My doctor told me over the counter medication is ok but I have read a lot of articles that says most over the counter medication are not safe for pregnant women. Should I ask one of the other doctors at the office I go to or does anyone have any suggestions on what would be safe for both me and the baby? Thanks in advance for your help.

Gyne- Lotrimin is what my OB recommended Answered by Kayla Coston 6 months ago.
They say you can use plain yogurt to cure it, which is natural and obviously safe. I am 19 weeks and was having issues with yeast for like a month. I did two rounds of OTC, seven day treatment, which failed both times. I work with midwifes and mine recommended to do OTC first because it seems to work best when you are pregnant. Because it didn't work with either attempt and I'm not too big on the whole messy yogurt idea, she gave me a pill. It was one dose with the one pill - no sex for a week. That was about three weeks ago and I'm doing fine as far as yeast ago. (still feel baby kicking too) Answered by Anita Mccaffree 6 months ago.
i wouldnt take anything oraly for a yeast infection, things like that are probably bad for you during pregnancy. but one of those creams or time-release pills that you insert vaginaly should be just fine and clear it up. Answered by Darrin Deutscher 6 months ago.
OTC medication is ok. Happened to me when I was pregnant. You wont be taking it for verly long before it clears up. Answered by Zina Iskra 6 months ago.

Yeast infection itch releif...HELP!!!!!?
Asked by Jeramy Moddejonge 6 months ago.
Gyne Lotrimin, Monistat -- buy the cream which you can apply directly to the itchy parts then follow the instructions and be accurate and diligent about them. Try a vinegar and water douche -- it eases the itching way up there in the areas you can't apply the cream. Eat yogurt (and some people apply plain yogurt directly on the itchy parts and maintain it relieves itching and burning) but eating yogurt will help get rid of and keep yeast infections away. Answered by Lorette Raponi 6 months ago.
Lanicane (I don't know how you spell it) helps too. Also after this infection is gone try having at least one 20 minute bath a week. I myself am a shower person but I make sure I have one bath and really let myself soak. I haven't had a yeast infection in years and I use to get them all the time. Hope this helps Answered by Laverna Monclova 6 months ago.
Use Vagisil for the itch and Monistat (or something similar) for the actual infection. Answered by Denisha Stengle 6 months ago.
i know this sounds crazy, but try desitin (baby rash ointment). For real, yeast infections happen and are not preventable, but that vagisil stuff burns more than it helps. Really, try the desitin! fyi use a q-tip to apply, much easier and not as messy that way. Answered by Rachael Grund 6 months ago.
Go to the pharmacy and talk to the pharmacist. Monistat is sold Over the Counter now. There are different types, so check with the pharmacist as to which is best for you. Answered by Wava Hobell 6 months ago.
get to walgreens or where ever and get some over the counter medication. what really helps tho (after medication) is getting a zip lock bag full of ice and resting it right on your 'special area' on TOP of your pants. between the creams and the ice you should be on your way to reliefe!

Answered by Del Ambrosino 6 months ago.
I have this sometimes, get gyne lotrimin and use every dose. I think it contains 3. Make sure to use all of it. And if that doesn't work, then go to the doctor because it could be a urinary tract infection. Good Luck!! Answered by Dann Baiza 6 months ago.
You should probably make a trip to the gynocologist - really. You haven't used anything over the counter to treat your symptoms and you've let them fester for at least a year. You can become sterile, so you need to be properly checked out to make sure everything is working smoothly. The doctor will then tell you the proper course of action. Please, do not start self-medicating now - you've put it off too long. Schedule an appointment as soon as possible. In the meantime - I did a quick search for some helpful information that I am including here. You can check the wesite in depth at a later time. My Research (below): A certain amount of vaginal discharge (fluid that flows out the vaginal opening) is normal. The vaginal walls and uterine cervix contain glands that produce a small amount of fluid that helps to keep the vagina clean. This normal fluid is usually clear or milky white and does not have an unpleasant odor. The normal vaginal discharge is thicker at specific times of the menstrual cycle (at the time of ovulation), during breastfeeding, or during sexual arousal. An increase in the amount of vaginal discharge, an abnormal odor or consistency of the fluid, or pain, itching, or burning that accompanies vaginal discharge can all be signs of infection or other more serious disorders.

A year??? Oh honey, I know that it's painful, but you need to see a doctor!! You could be come unable to have children if you let this go. In the meantime, get some Monistat (usually in the toothpast aisle by the pregnancy tests and condoms) and follow the directions as to how to insert it. It can be used externally also for the itch. It may stain your underwear though so use a pantiliner and wear loose fitting clothing as if you're wearing tight clothes, your vagina can't breathe which is allowing the yeast to grow. Are you sexually active? It could be an STD. Don't be embarrassed and see a doctor...they see everything!! Answered by Brittanie Mergenthaler 6 months ago.
Sweetheart as much as you don't want to go to the doctor it really sounds like you should. Yeast infections do not cause cuts on the outer or inner vaginal area. Also yellow discharge is not a symptom of a yeast infection, nor is the odor. Yeast infection symptoms include vaginal itching & a thick white discharge with texture similar to cottage cheese. If it is anything more than that please go asap. If not, go to your local drug store & pick up some Monistat. Don't get a dose lower than 5 days though. They tend not to work as well. You should also follow up by seeing your doctor. It is confidential. Answered by Michael Castoreno 6 months ago.
yeast is easy to treat, yeast infections produce a white curd like discharge and smell like bread or yeast, your description does not sound like yeast it sounds more like (BV) bacterial vaginosis, you need to see your gyno as this can lead to more serious problems but with your details I wouldn't rule out an std, make the appointment and go, wish you the best! Answered by Jimmie Haurin 6 months ago.
Get to a doctor quick. You definitely do not have just a yeast infection and you will need some special antibiotic or antiviral treatment. Good luck. Answered by Justin Carriger 6 months ago.
you can use tea bags to help relieve the itching and you cna use plain cultured yogurt to help balance out your PH balance. Trust me on this one hunny, it really works!!! Answered by Min Brownie 6 months ago.

Answered by Theron Bumgarner 6 months ago.
These are the ones I would recommend: 1. Gyne-Lotrimin or Mycelex (clotrimazole) 2. Gynezol or Femstat (butoconazole) 3. Monistat (miconazole nitrate) 4. Vagistat-1 (tioconazole) You should be able to find these at your local pharmaceutical store (CVS, Walgreen's,etc). Just ask someone that works their and they will happily guide you. I would HIGHLY recommend that you avoid the foods with SUGARS and YEAST (breads, cookies, rice, pasta, etc). They will only prolong your infection and can even cause it to get worse. Eat lots of leafy green veg's so you can balance your ph levels in your body. Answered by Estella Gian 6 months ago.

Question about losing mucus plug?
they say the medication was safe, can anyone tell me why they've heard differently?
Asked by Melvin Schaar 6 months ago.
I'm 38 weeks now, and I'm currently using gyne-lotrimin 7 for a yeast infection (cream with internal applicator). I just lost my mucus plug, (I'm assuming, because of the bloody tinge)....so just wondering...is the medicine still safe to use? I'm assuming everything's still okay, because they say you can have sex up until your water breaks. Answered by Lyla Mohamed 6 months ago.
sounds like it hun, thats a question you should ask ur midwife or gp abount medication but yes u can keep haing sex until ur water breaks might not be too long away Answered by Gilberte Boane 6 months ago.
You know that old saying "when in doubt, throw it out" Well I am trying to put that some concept here. You lost the plug that "plugs" the cervix. If you are that doubtful about using the product, dont use it. I wouldnt just to be on the safe side and just to make sure even more..you might want to call your doctor. When you lose your mucus plug.. that can lead to other things. I know that when I lost mine(( I lost mine way earlier than 38 weeks), I started dilating the day after to around 3 cm and was put on bed rest immediately. Just be careful, and call your doctor. Oh and please do be careful using that, I dont think that you are even supposed to be using it while your pregnant. Answered by Nelia Mascaro 6 months ago.
Did your doctor approve using that, I thought you weren't allowed to use anything like that while pregnant, after you lose your mucus plug you aren't supposed to take a bath or anything since you are going to start dilating, bacteria can get up there. Answered by Miki Krupinsky 6 months ago.
When can I have sex again?
I had a yeast infection, and did a three day treatment of Gyne-Lotrimin. Last night I took my last 'dose' (or inserted it). How long should I wait to have sex? My yeast infection is all gone but I don't know how long it'll take for all this medicine to come out.... Thanks!
