sorry TMI info ahead<br><br>
can you have a yeast infection even though u dont have the 'white curdlike' discharge?<br>
i'm *so* itchy it's not even funny. it hurts it itches so bad..the whole vulval (is that a word?) area. i cant sleep<br><br>
i tried the garlic for 3or 4 days, did the yogurt, did the probiotics and still..<br>
i finally bought some monistat cream and it's lessened the itch but hasnt made it go away and i'm going insane <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
my midwife appt is still 5 days away --should i just call my doctor? i really dont want to go but i've never had a yeast infection and am worried about doing the monistat suppositories without a 'real' diagnosis..(wouldnt have been so worried if i wasnt pregnant)<br><br>
could it be anything else?

no patches, no fusing of skin but i'll look up those 2 in case<br>
there is discharge but just the common pregnancy all-the-time discharge <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"><br>
thanks for the info-off to search

I was just about to post an identical question! I'm off to the Walgreen's.can't.take.it.anymore. Let us know what works for you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I do tend to think it is yeast. I just finished 14 day run of antibiotics <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> for pneumonia that had spread to my heart.<br><br>
Did you get a "kit" that had cream for the external area? I've only ever had this one other time and the external cream was the greatest thing...ever.

Yes, you can. I on occasion will get these right before my period. It is like almost a yeast infection. If I do it several months in a row I go get Diflican (SP) . I have issues with the cream that they put in Monistat type products.

*ahem* Hello!<br><br>
I haven't had this issue for a while (knock on wood) but it has been known to happen. I found a great homeopathic cream sold at drug stores called Vagi-Gard that did the trick instantly.<br><br>
Also, if you do have a YI, try their Yeast-Gard product, I've used that and had immediate relief as well.<br><br><a href="http://store.estreet.com/lakeconsumer/Search.bok?category=Vaginal+Itching%2FIrritation+Products" target="_blank">Lake Consumer Products - Yeast-Gard and Vagi-Gard</a><br><br>
Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
