What is a safe treatment for yeast infection during pregnancy?

Question: What is a innocuous treatment for yeast infection during pregnancy?
I have a yeast infection and I was recommended to do the 3 day treatment called Miconazole Vaginal Antifungal. Is that safe? It has 3 suppositories and disposable applicators plus 1 tube of external vulvar cream. I was wandering if the Suppositories were innocuous though. And If not, what would be safe? If the treatment starts working but then doesn’t work after you do it, is that normal? I heard it happens. I’m just worried, that’s all! So some help would be great.

    You can safely treat a yeast infection during pregnancy with various over-the-counter antifungal creams or suppositories, including:

    Miconazole (Monistat)
    Clotrimazole (Gyne-Lotrimin)
    These products can be used at any point during pregnancy and don’t pose a risk of birth defects or other pregnancy complications. For best results, choose a seven-day formula. Home remedies or natural treatments generally aren’t recommended during this time. However I would recommend that you also avoid sugars since they can directly feed the yeast and prolong your infection.

    Yeast infections, a type of vaginitis, occur when certain internal or external factors change the normal environment of the vagina and trigger an overgrowth of a microscopic fungus — often C. albicans. Yeast infections are especially common during pregnancy due to hormonal changes. Signs and symptoms of a yeast infection typically include vaginal itching and a white, thick discharge that resembles cottage cheese.

    If you haven’t been previously diagnosed with a yeast infection and develop symptoms for the first time during pregnancy, consult your health care provider before using an over-the-counter yeast infection treatment. It’s possible to mistake a yeast infection for other types of vaginitis or other conditions that need different treatment.

    Yeast is a general term that refers to over 1500 species of micro organisms that belong to the fungi kingdom. Most yeast is single celled and reproduces asexually through budding or in some cases through binary fusion.
