When I had my second infection in a row when pg. I did the pill and the cream. Helped so much--never came back the rest of the time. If it gets worse go with the pill-helps dispell the bacteria quickly.
well when i had my last y/i about 15 wks into the pregnancy, he gave me the pill, and that didn't help! so i called back and explained what was going on and he said to try the otc 7 day treatment, so i did, and it went away! so i think u made the right decison!
Your dr wouldnt prescribe you something that would hurt your baby! Just keep that in mind. I know what you mean tho...I worry too! Mine told me to get Sudafed for my sinus problems and take it as directed. Kinda scares me but I hope it works! All I could find was Sudafed PE - so I took it to the Pharmacist and asked if it was the same thing and she said no. THANK GOD I ASKED!!!
If he is prescribing the pill Diflucan, I would check into it further before taking it. My dr. told me that the creams are safe but that Diflucan has not been found safe to take during pregnancy. I'm one of those unlucky people who get frequent y/i. The creams seem to work for me.
