My lay pregnancy I had a constant yeast infection. After giving birth I actually had a yeast infection in my arm pits that lasted over a year. My doctor said it had to do with all the hormones changing how my body reacts.
With my last preg I had at least 2 yeast infections. I found washing with vagisil ph balance worked. Avoid sugar. Multiple infections can be a sign of GD. Have you had your glucose test yet?
I had them constantly during my first pregnancy (both yeast and bacterial). I'm 6 weeks with my 2nd and i already have my 1st bacterial infection. It's going to be a long 9 months!
I had BV at the beginning of my first pregnancy. This pregnancy(25 weeks) I've had 2 yeast infections. It ***** when you discharge so much already(tmi sorry).
I have diabetes and even though my sugars are pretty good I get yeast infections quite often...I try to keep up on eating yogurt regularly and my dr said okay to taking acidophilus pills so I do that and seems to help. Also sleeping without underwear so it can air out...if you have to use monistat I use the suppositories, less mess
I haven't had one pregnant yet but the birth control i was on caused several. I stopped taking baths, no tampons, switched to all cotton panties and started taking a probioyic and that seemed to work. Another thing is not leaving semen inside of you. make sure you pee after sex. yogurt is a natural probiotic. try those!
your pH levels are so out of whack. I had BV 2x in the 16wks I carried my son. and 1x after. It was horrific.
Especially because my fiancé said he didn't notice a smell, so I thought I was losing my mind.
Sperm can set me off down there, as well as beer (after I had him), hard to try to get pregnant if your partners sperm gives you BV, lol!
BUT, I have been without it for 3 mos and now am 4wks along again.
Not looking fwd to infections though, as I think that's what caused my little guy to pass :(
Kate042015...I have not had the GD test yet. I think soon. I'm 19 weeks today. I will try the suggestions. I want yogurt daily and I don't think I ingest much sugar. Thank you all so much!!
It just itches like a *****. It's also super painful and uncomfortable. I may have a uti, too. I'll find out tomorrow.
Omg I thought I was the only one I'm losing my mind with these constant bc infections I am 21 weeks n have had two already and am sure I have another. I was prescribed metro gel and it only worked for a little while and I have been using rephresh vaginal gel n that works really good but u have to keep using it and it is $23 a pop! Someone told me eating yogurt is a good way to help balance bacteria and ph so I will be trying that next.
I've had several also. Took the meds that they gave me twice and it still came back. My nurse practitioner said there are 4 types of yeast and that the usual meds only treat the most common 2 types so she did a swab test to find out what type of yeast it is. I find out Thursday so I'll keep you posted.
I've had 1 yeast infection and 1 uti already. I'm almost 28 weeks. I know how you feel :(
Update! Went to Dr and it was a yeast infection. Got on some meds. Hope it clears up soon!
I got my results back and she said it wasn't yeast this time. My body is just producing its own stuff down there and not to worry. Lol.
