If this does not clear things up and you are not taking antibiotics you should be checked to see if you have diabetes or other problems with your immune system. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it safe to take diflucan (fluconazole) while trying to conceive? I have a yeast infection but it is too early to take a pregnancy test.

Is it safe to take diflucan (fluconazole) while trying to conceive? I have a yeast infection but it is too early to take a pregnancy test.

Diflucan (fluconazole): Is really safe but it does have liver toxicity for some and pregnancy needs to be as drug free as possible. Yeast feeds on sugar so if you get rid of that you might "starve it out. A course of Nystatin would be O.K. Because it is not absorbed from the bowel and that is the headquarters of the infection. ...Read more
