In brief: Generally No...
Yeast infections can be caused by a pH imbalance of the vagina that can occur commonly in pregnancy due to hormonal changes.
This overgrowth of a fungus can be treated at any time during pregnancy with antifungals like Monistat otc or terazol (terconazole) via a prescription. Yeast infections can cause vaginal itching, redness of the vagina, and a white clumpy discharge that looks like cottage cheese.
