Yeast Infections and Pregnancy

Yeast infections are more common during pregnancy than during any other point in a woman's life. A woman's body is undergoing numerous changes during pregnancy. The estrogen level, for example, increases during pregnancy. This may result to some chemical imbalance in the vaginal environment.

Pregnancy also triggers an increase in the amount of sugar present in the body. Since the Candida fungus loves sugar, this makes it highly possible for a pregnant woman to have an overgrowth of yeast fungus in her body, especially in the vagina.

Yeast infection in pregnant women does not harm the mother as much as it harms the fetus. In order to protect the vulnerable life inside the womb, the infected mother should take precautionary measures before taking any yeast infection medication.

If you have vaginal infection symptoms, you need a reliable doctor to confirm if it is indeed yeast infection or some other types of infections. Vaginal irritation, burning sensations and discharges are also symptoms of bacterial infections and sexually-transmitted diseases. These two types of diseases can harm the fetus more than yeast infections can.

To treat vaginal yeast infections, doctors would advise pregnant women and lactating mothers to use externally-applied medications instead of oral drugs. Diflucan, an oral drug used that's known to be very effective in stopping yeast infections, can cause serious congenital disorders in babies.

As much as possible, antifungal creams and suppositories should be the only choices a pregnant woman should have when dealing with yeast infections. However, the pregnant woman should still seek for a doctor's advice regarding the most suitable antifungal cream or suppositories to use. Some intra-vaginal applications can still affect the fetus inside a woman's womb. Pregnant women should follow the doctor's instructions on how to use topical applications and suppositories.

Natural remedies are helpful because they do not pose harmful side effects as much as synthetic drugs do. However, pregnant women should never resort to self-treatment for yeast infection. No remedies - whether oral or topical, synthetic or natural - should be taken by a pregnant woman without the advice of a trusted professional.
