And I also wanted to add that after having my daughter.......I have not gotten one since. For some reason, I used to get them monthly....its been 4 months and I have NOT had one!!!!! so happy about that.
Take over the counter monistat cream inserts. Or you can use the generic store brand.. You will find it in the isle near the pregnancy tests and things of that nature. Look for monistat.....there are a bunch of different kinds...1 days...3 days....7 days.....and below that you can find the generic brands of monistat.....
This is the only thing you can use during pregnancy to get rid of a yeast infection, and unfortunately, its not a pill you take orally. They are inserts that you use vaginally.
