Make sure it's yeast. Studies show that many "yeast infections" are bacterial imbalances or even normal secretions. During pregnancy, an increase in discharge is normal. It's best to have your provider do an exam to target the treatment to the correct diagnosis. During pregnancy, especially, it's best to be certain of the diagnosis. This will prevent incorrect therapy and avoid delay in identifying the true culprit.
OTC remedies. You can use over-the-counter remedies if the symptoms are really bad. Keep in mind though that the hormone changes of pregnancy cause an overgrowth of yeast that is not dangerous and does not need to be treated unless it is causing severe symptoms.
Varies. I'm not aware of any specific time frame. One is more prone to vaginal discharge during the third trimester though.
What causes recurrent vaginal yeast infections Urine test showed glucose-absent. Took once intraconazole 400mg for one day but not cured. Age 21 virgin?
Yeast infection. This can be predisposed to by diabetes (without there being glycosuria), antibiotics taken for other reasons, immune suppression, stress, lack of sleep, illnesses, etc. Itraconazole for one day may not be adequate therapy. Discuss with your doctor and if not satisfied you may want to get a second opinion. Best wishes.
What causes recurrent vaginal yeast infections evn after taking intraconazole? Not sexually active. Urine test showed glucose-absent. Age 21
Yeast. Have you formally been diagnosed with the infection each time? Sometimes itraconazole might not be helpful if used repeatedly. Make sure you are gently cleaning with unscented products and rinse well. Pat dry or use hair dryer on cool. Try to not bathe (shower instead) and get out of wet/sweaty clothing ASAP. See your doctor as well to help confirm and perhaps suggest another treatment.
