NO: Trichomoniasis is caused by a completely different organism from a yeast infection. Trichomoniasis is caused by a protozoa and Yeast infections are caused by fungi typically with the name Candida
Dr. Jon Ahrendsen

Trichomoniasis ?: Trichomoniasis does not come from a yeast infection. It is a sexually transmitted disease that comes from sexual contact with another person who has the infection. If you have this infection you need treatment/medication and so does your sexual partner.

Treat it: If you are sure that it is a yeast infection you can treat it with over-the-counter Miconazole (monostat). However, you must be certain that it is not cervical mucus, normal (physiologic) pregnancy discharge or a bacterial infection. If you are not sure or your symptoms do not resolve with treatment ask your healthcare provider to examine you and look at the discharge under a microscope to be sure.

May be reinfected: It is possible that your significant other is carrying the candida on the skin of the penis and reinfecting you, or that your GI tract is heavily colonized. You could try using an antifungal cream on your partner's penis and if this does not work you could treat your vaginal infection and simultaneously take Fluconazole orally and maintain it for a month, at least through one period.

Yeast infection: Please seek the advice of your ob. However, intravaginal suppositories (monistat) are available otc. For intestinal yeast infection, probiotics should help. Refrain from oral medications like Diflucan (fluconazole) as much as possible during your pregnancy.
