<Amy> - February 25

Hi i feel a bit embaressed posting this but since becoming pregnant i hav had the worst bout of thrush (could also be due to me being on antibiotics for urine infection), it's really gettin me down. It's unbearably itchy n won't go away its there everywhere i go and all day, can be very embaressing while im out aswell. Has anyone else got this? and can you give me any advice on how to get rid of it. (In first trimester so can't take any medication for it).

Hi Amy, being pregnant really plays with your horemone levels and what you have kind of sounds like an yeast infection which you can take monestat for (it's safe during pregnancy). But if you are on antibiotics I would go to have it checked out by a doctor first and make sure it's not anything else. They can also give you a cream to make the itching stop. The wacky horemones during pregnancy can cause an yeast infection even if someone has never had it before. if it is an yeast infection, and you use monestat, don't use the 1 day...the dosage is to high. go for the 3 or the 7 day treatment. Hope you feel better.

talk to your dr about taking an acidopholus supplement. it helped me when i had thrush after baby was born. it's safe for nursing, but i'm not 100% sure about pregnancy, so ask the dr. i hope you feel better soon!
