Hi there,
Yeast infections are common during pregnancy. During pregnancy there are many hormonal changes taking place and there is more sugar in the vaginal secretions which allows more yeast to feed. During pregnancy usually vaginal creams and suppositories are used. Using Nystatin powder may prevent a recurring infection. Have a balanced diet and include yoghurt with lactobacillus in your diet. Wear loose cotton undergarments and maintain hygiene. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and luck!
