I'll be calling my RE tomorrow, but anyone know what is usually prescribed/OTC for a YI during pg?
I already eat greek yogurt and take probiotics and grapefruit seed extract (going to use it diluted externally on the irritated areas).
It's from the prometrium...been getting them in the last year. I didn't have a problem with it during past pgs, but after my last baby I had 48hrs of IV antibiotics and a 10-day oral because of a GBS infection (bladder, uterine, and placenta were all infected...I was so sick ). Anyway, ds and I battled yeast/thrush for a year pp. By then though we were ttc and using prometrium in the LP so I haven't completely eradicated it despite yogurt, probiotics, and gse everyday.
I thought I had beaten it with my last pg since the prometrium never caused an issue, but then I was on an antibiotic for bacterial bronchitis after an allergic reaction to a cat in December/January and they did an antibiotic wash vaginally and a topical antibiotic on my cervix during the MVA. I ended up with a YI a week later, but a 3day OTC anti-fungal took care of it.
I felt like everything I was doing was keeping it at bay, but then I had the u/s on Wednesday and since then it has gotten progressively worse. Now it's just plain miserable !
I've heard of soaking a tampon in probiotics and a diluted solution of GSE then inserting it overnight, but I'm nervous about using a tampon during pg...thoughts on that?
