Since about 22 weeks pregnant, I've had problems down there! I'm a first time mom (37+ weeks). I've never had any infections before pregnancy. My diet hasn't really changed either. I have the pretty typical story - was "treated" for BV, which then gave me a yeast infection. THEY WILL NOT GO AWAY! I've been treated, cleared, then they come back within a few days. Here's what I've tried:
Monistat (several times)
Dilflucan (several times)
ACV (drank a shot of it once a day for about a week)
ACV (bathed in it once a day for about a week)
Eating lots of garlic food
Eliminating sugar out of my diet (only for about a week - I'm pregnant and have major cravings so it's hard)
Probiotics (the RePhresh brand - on them for 2 months now)
NOTHING seems to help! It's so frustrating and ruining my sex life with my boyfriend. I know it's so common during pregnancy, but it WILL NOT GO AWAY! I've also read that many women get yeast infections AFTER they deliver that won't go away.
Is there anything else I haven't tried that I should?! IS THERE ANY HOPE THAT AFTER I DELIVER MY BABY BOY THAT MY BODY WILL GO BACK TO NORMAL? It's actually made me depressed because I only see my boyfriend every 2 weeks as we're doing long distance because of his job, and I want that intimacy back. PLEASE help!
