I'm sorry but I just don't agree with using any kind of home remedy to treat a yeast infection, bladder infection or any other type of infection during pg. But I'm not someone who has a problem with using medication properly when required. I was told to use the 7 day over the counter treatment. The reason for the 7 day is that it's a smaller dose of medication administered over a longer period of time. There's nothing wrong with using actual medication if it's known to be safe for baby.

Thank you to everyone for the replies! I have actually used yogurt (my midwife and OB recommended it as well) but I keep having recurring infections, and I was hoping there was some way to keep it from coming back. Maybe I am not using the yogurt for enough days to clear it up? Has anyone had luck with acidophillus (sp?) capsules?
I am also glad to hear that it isn't unusual for the infection to spread to the thigh. I had never had a yeast infection before this pregnancy, and I am relieved to hear that there is nothing unusual going on.
