Hey mamas. I'm more of a browser than anything on here, so I'm sorry many of you don't know me. I've followed the DDC over the months and thank you all so much for all your posts!!
I need some help and value your opinions. I have gotten 3 yeast infections this pregnancy (1 of those right now) and am SOO sick of it!! More than anything, I'm terrified that I will end up having one when I deliver (I'm 37 weeks today) and then I'll have to possibly deal with thrush issues I had to deal with that with DS and I want to avoid it like a plague!
Anyways, so I've simply treated my yeast infections with Monistat up to this point (I've had yeast infections before and that has ALWAYS cured them for me in the past). I'm convinced now that is simply treating the symptoms for me at this point. Obviously something else is off or I wouldn't keep getting them. So I desperately need to make some changes.
I'm planning on trying some probiotics and adding plain yogurt into my diet. Hopefully over the next 3 weeks that can balance me out a bit. What else can I do? Also, I take baths occasionally and am curious if I should cut that out for now. Since I'm so terrified of thrush, I'm also concerned that this could have spread to my breasts...is that possible? or likely? or maybe I just sound stupid
I don't know...I'm desperate for anything at this point since I'm so close to delivering. Sorry, I know it's a lot of questions. Please help!
