Not sure...I remember my neighbour telling me that when she was prego she had a yeast infection and she couldn't do anything about it so I would check with my doctor if I were you! Good luck!

When I was pregnant with my son I developed one in the last trimester and I was told by my obstetrician that it was safe to use I think it was Canestan....I think she said it was the one with the cream. This was 2 1/2 yrs ago so it's hard to remember exactly what she said but I do know she said it was safe.
But you should check with your own doctor. My doc. also told me they are quite common in pregnancy.
Just as a side note if you have an active yeast infection during the time of your labour and your baby is born vaginally, it is possible for your baby to be born with Thrush...yeast patches in the mouth....it's not dangerours but very uncomfortalbe for your baby to nurse and there can be an ongoing cycle of transmission if you are breastfeeding.
Just be sure to get it checked out and diagnosed with your doctor to be sure that that is what it is and if it can be treated.

Good luck.

Monostat is safe, but check with your doctor anyway just to let them know what's going on. Don't use the one day treatment. It won't work very well while pregnant. You can use the three day, but most doctors recommend the seven day treatment.

I haven't got one while pregnant so I wouldn't know, I would just give the doc's office a quick call.
