Will a yeast infection go away on its own? I'm 30 weeks pregnant and high risk for preterm labor.

I am concerned: You are 30 weeks and high risk, you need to be comfortable sending any and all questions to your doctor or midwife. This is a good question here but a risk this is not yeast.

I took a cheap pregnancy test first thing in the morning and got a very faint second line (i took povacare medication for a yeast infection). I tested 2 first response pregnancy tests about 30 minutes after and both were negative. Am i pregnant?

Test again tomorrow: There is no really good reason to test multiple times in one day, IMHO. I suggest if you get an early test it makes alot more sense repeating the next day: then you can be pretty certain of your result. Good wishes. ...Read more
