I am 24 weeks pregnant can I take azo yeast?

I am 24 weeks pregnant can I take azo yeast?

Not recommended: Although I cannot say definitively that the product will harm you or the baby, I would not recommend trying a new herbal preparation in pregnancy. Besides, there are many OTC preparations/homeopathic remedies with a far better track record and are safe to use in pregnancy, there is no need to take a risk.

Can I take Azo yeast (mistletoe leaf and boneset homeopathic medicine in a probiotic base) I am 16 wekks pregnant?

Can I take Azo yeast (mistletoe leaf and boneset homeopathic medicine in a probiotic base) I am 16 wekks pregnant?

I advise caution: First, I'm a professional homeopath who believes homeopathy in general is very safe & one of the very best ways to treat common maladies in pregnancy. There is no research on the use of azo yeast (& most meds & herbs) during pregnancy. But I believe that mistletoe should be avoided during pregnancy & this preparation is low-potency meaning it does have a tiny amount of mistletoe in it. See comment:.

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!

7 Mos pregnant. Doc prescribed me a 7day yeast suppository trtmnt that's not working. Is there something stronger I can use. I also take AZO pills dly?

Re-examine?: Did you get tested for things other than yeast? There are several things that can cause symptoms fairly similar to yeast. If you didn't get checked, now is the time. Hope this helps!

Will taking Azo yeast infection pills while pregnant harm the baby? I take these for utis.

Will taking Azo yeast infection pills while pregnant harm the baby? I take these for utis.

Azo aren't for yeast: Azo are not yeast infection pills. They are used to reduce bladder spasms. They don't treat utis but are used to help with symptoms while antibiotics can kick in. It's best to check in with your OB if you're having bladder trouble. A bladder infection that's untreated during pregnancy can spread to the kidney and possibly cause preterm birth.

If I am 19 weeks pregnant and have a yeast infection is it okay to take azo yeast plus? Will this harm my baby or cause any bitrth defects?

If I am 19 weeks pregnant and have a yeast infection is it okay to take azo yeast plus? Will this harm my baby or cause any bitrth defects?

Not a problem: I assume that you will be treating the infection intra-vaginally. None of the azo will get to your developing baby. You are also beyond the critical period during which drugs might have an effect.

Is it okay to take 1 prenatal vitamin, 1 Azo yeast pill, and the 3 required hair skin and nail vitamins in 1 day? And no, I'm not pregnant.

Is it okay to take 1 prenatal vitamin, 1 Azo yeast pill, and the 3 required hair skin and nail vitamins in 1 day? And no, I'm not pregnant.

Skin and nail: You may be taking more Vitamins than you need. The Prenatal Vitamin likely has everything you need. Too many Vitamins can actually cause more harm than good. You would have to read the contents of the skin and nail Vitamins and see if they overlap with the prenatal (which they likely do). Then total all of it up to see if you exceed safe levels. One Vitamin a day is usually enough

The: The Plan B likely interfered with your body's normal hormonal balance. It may take up to three months after taking it to get a period. However a blood pregnancy test is not a bad idea at this point. Otherwise, if your period does not come in the next month see your doctor. He/she can prescribe a pill that can induce a period, and then a birth control pill can be started to stabilize your period and prevent pregnancy. Take care.

Can I take Azo yeast with cipro (ciprofloxacin) and flagyl?

Safe but not helpful: It wouldn't hurt to take these things together, but it probably won't help either. Azo Yeast® is a natural product that has no proven benefit either to prevent or treat yeast infections. If you think you may have a yeast infection, check with the clinic or doctor who prescribed the antibiotics.
