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. ...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

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. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

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. ...Read more
