i used alot of antibiotic that is why h had yeast infection
Kudos to Patti! I didn't have a yeast infection until I was 50 years old. My husband is a type 2 diabetic, & they tend to carry more yeast on their skin than most. My doctor wanted me to try Monistat first (yuk-messy), & did not totally wipe it out anyway, so he prescribed Diflucan which is a one pill dose. A big pill mind you, but it works...
Diflucan is great, along with a course of probiotics. You can do this without the Diflucan - it does give fast results though. Probiotics are over-the-counter supplements that are kept refrigerated, and are meant to replace the "good" bacteria in your intestinal tract that the antibiotics wiped out. Make sure you are getting high potency probiotics - around 15 billion or more, and that they are kept refrigerated. While taking these, avoid sugar, flour and processed foods, as foods made with these items actually feed the yeast and cause it to grow. There is a LoT of information online about this - just google yeast, but the information I've given you is enough to get you going. After this, anytime you are on an antibiotic be sure to take your probiotics at the same time. Best wishes to you and for a great pregnancy -
