I’ve been on an antibiotic for a cold for about a week now and i got a yeast infection from it i know its a yeast infection because ive had many before. I’m 28 weeks pregnant i was wondering if there was any OTC yeast infection creams i can use while pregnant? I’ve tried making an Same day appt with my OB physician but can’t get one till next week and i need something to help me now. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Ask your pharmacist when you are in the store to be sure. The basic canestan cream is innocuous to use, the pessaries and tablets are not.

    i had the same prob at 24weeks and the pharmasist gave me canastan cream available over the counter. The one they gave me had 3 applications in a syringe which got inserted “in there”. Was odd to use but after a day it was gone :)

    Just tell them u r preg and how far along n they can def help you with what you need :)

    In the U.S., any of the over-the-counter stuff is perfectly safe to take. Monistat or the off-brand with the same active ingredient is most often recommended. Just a thought, in pregnancy the one-time dose stuff often does not work, you end up needing a longer dose. So I would recommend trying the 3-day stuff and seeing if that does it.

    This is my testimonial.

    I developed a severe case of vaginal yeast infection that would not let up. The itching, burning and swelling of my labia were simply unbearable. I purchased several over-the-counter treatments, including Monistat cream to subside the symptoms. While it worked initially, eventually things wore off and left me with an even worse infection than before.

    The same goes for the antibiotics I took with the advice of my doctor. I felt horrible. After doing some research online, I found a program for yeast prevention and cure.

    The results were almost instantaneous. In less than 7 hours, I felt a tremendous relief. Two weeks later I became completely free from the unbearable vaginal itching, burning, swelling and discharge. My chronic yeast infection is now at bay ever since. No more drugs or OTC’s for me.

    I’m sure that you first would like to cure it naturally if possible. Try applying some plain yogurt and garlic. Also drink a lot of water. If you want to cure it fast and easily, there is a program that i tried that helped me thoroughly. You can try it out. You will never need to suffer from the pain or itching again. Try it out.
