I'm 30 weeks pregnant and have had a rash in the inside of my elbows for over a month. Is it possible that it is a yeast infection?

Possible, yes.: I'm assuming by "inside of elbows", you mean the opposite side, where they bend. If so, yeast infections do sometimes occur in those areas - but so do other rashes, such as eczema. Most rashes that occur during pregnancy have nothing to do with the pregnancy; but there are several pregnancy-specific rashes. If you've had it for over a month, it's probably time to visit a dermatologist. ...Read more

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

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. Any uncertainty is unacceptable in your situation. If anyone at the other end of the phone acts annoyed with your questions that is their problem, not yours. Call all questions in to your provider from here on out! good luck. ...Read more

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?

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

Can a yeast infection give any effects during my pregnancy?

Yes. Get it treated: Although this is not something that happens often, it is possible for vaginal yeast to cause intrauterine inflammation and preterm labor. Yeast infections are common in pregnancy. Call your OB today to get a prescription for the yeast. Avoid over the counter treatments until you've discussed them with OB. Clotrimazole for 7 days is considered safe, but there are other creams that OBs prefer. ...Read more

I have an yeast infection. Can I take the AZO yeast for it if I'm pregnant?

I have an yeast infection. Can I take the AZO yeast for it if I'm pregnant?

Check with your Ob: Pregnant women should always check first with their obstetricians before using any vaginal product. AZO Yeast probably would be harmless, but probably wouldn't work; it doesn't cure yeast, only treats the symptoms. There are many more effective over-the-counter productus. But your doctor may want to confirm the diagnosis and/or suggest a particular medication. Call the office. Good luck! ...Read more

Not really: While you can get yeast infections in pregnancy, you can get them just as easily when you aren't pregnant as well. Actually persistent yeast infections can be seen in diabetics and people using corticosteroids. I tend to see more yeast infections in mid summer and mid winter. ...Read more
