yes i have ,& when i had it i felt like it was so extreme. My vagina was swollen & red and it had these weird bumps on it ! My doctor prescribed clotrimazole , which i had to use twice a day for 7 days and it worked wonders . i haven't had another yeast infection since , but whenever my vagina feels even a little irritated, i use a little & it goes back to normal. Ask your doctor about it. Good luck !

Yeah they're completely normal during pregnancy especially if you're taking antibiotics for some reason it tends to flare up a yeast infect. My Dr gave me a 7 day vaginal cream I would ask your Dr what they recommend (:

I used monistat it was good I used the seven day one and by day 5 it was gone. Its just messy so I only used it at night with a pad since the cream inserted leaks
