I am 5 weeks pregnant and have a yeast infection. I do not want to do medician for obvious reasons as well as they generally don't work for me anyway. I took an Enzyme solution a while back and it worked great for me...but then I went on a sugar frenzy and with the pregnancy my body reacted as so! I order the probiotic from a PhD/CNN in the US who was recommended by my chiropractic physician. This Dr. said it is just fine to take during pregnancy, but she is not an OB/midwife. Of what I've read about Enzymes and probiotics, it appears to just work on the digestion in the stomach...so seems safe to me...of course on the back of the bottle as with everything, it says "Do not take if pregnant or nursing unless under Physician care." I don't have a midwife/Ob yet to consult this with. Ugh...sometimes it's so frustrating. Do you know anything about these ingredients or Enzymes and pregnancy in general? Thanks for taking a look.
