There are quite a few things women just don’t openly talk about. A yeast infection is probably at the top of the TMI women probs list. I mean who really wants to discuss itching, burning and irritation. I sure don’t sit around talking about how to get rid of a yeast infection with my friends. Where’s a girl to turn to when the inevitable happens?
A yeast infection will throw off your entire day, but it doesn’t have to ruin it. MONISTAT® is the #1 doctor recommended over the counter brand. When I was pregnant with my middle son, I had no idea that yeast infections were so common. When I realized what was happening I called my OB thinking I was having an emergency issue. My Dr. assured me it was one of the most common pregnancy symptoms and advised me to run to the pharmacy and pick up MONISTAT® OTC and start the treatment.
“If you are pregnant please talk with your doctor before self diagnosing yourself.”
So why do pregnant women become more susceptible to yeast infections. There is a lot of estrogen running through your body. The increased discharge is completely normal, but the overgrowth of yeast can happen rapidly and cause a yeast infection.
Symptoms of a yeast infection during pregnancy
- Discharge the consistency of cottage cheese
- Redness, itching, or irritation
How to keep yeast infections at bay
- Wear cotton undies that aren’t too tight
- Keep yourself dry. Change out of sweaty clothing and dry well after showers.
When a yeast infection seems evident MONISTAT® treatments cure vaginal yeast infections with simple OTC products. MONISTAT® offers products in different dosage strengths (1 day, 3 days or 7 days) and forms, including Ovule®, cream or suppositories. With different strains of yeast, MONISTAT® relieves symptoms four times faster.
