I have a yeast infection and I never get these, pregnant or not. However, being 6.5 months pregnant....it's just not fun any way you slice it. I've been treating it with home remedies that do not seem to full do the trick. I have a Dr appt tomorrow, where I bet I will be handed an over the counter cream. At this point, I might just be ok with it, but wanted some input before hand on what had worked for you. Also, I have not had that gross white thick build up in a few days, but the area is still a bit itchy or sensitive.
Ok here's what I have tried (in combination) since last Saturday:
- Fresh raw garlic suppository
- Plain, no pectin, no sugar yogurt suppository with all necessary probiotic cultures in there
- Apple cider vinegar baths
- Apple cider vinegar spray
- Probiotic capsule opened up on / in the area
- I just put tea tree oil/water dilution on there via cotton ball
All of these seem to help, but the issue isn't completely gone. I read about hydrogen peroxide as well as boric acid, but am a bit scared to try these without a few testimonials of success during pregnancy.
I cut out processed sugar, but I can't cut out all fruit, though I have minimized it. I do not eat meat, so turning to protein isnt that easy. I'm looking more for a topical / vaginal solution, as these infections do not happen to me so I am not worried about systemic candida. Beside, even I was to worry about it, I can't do any cleanse now or in the near future.
Any treatments that worked for you? Please advise!
