So I had a yeast infection for what feels like the last half of this pregnancy. I wanted it to go away naturally, you know rest air yogurt diet and all, however I finally caved & used 3-day canasten. I had asked the doctor to run a swab just to be sure, since with DD I had leukhorrhea so badly but it wasn't YI. My previous OB said never treat unless you're sure. This doctor told me go ahead and use canasten, or don't, whatever I was comfortable with. He said it's not a big deal at all to baby, I'm thinking he's a bit nuts - it would be more than annoying and bad if it transfers to mouth & boob, right???
It's been a glorious two weeks without discomfort!
Yesterday mild irritation, nothing I'd even thought to mention to the doctor about. Today I'm convinced it is back. WTF am I supposed to do now. I'm already a day past my due date. I won't use tablets or ovules and can't use the new oral, so that leaves the mucky cream. 1-day treatments are most likely for a recurrence, 7-day treatments are too long.... do I get another 3-day kit today?
Ugh, I don't know which is worse. I delayed treatment the first time just thinking I want to be yeast free at delivery. Sigh, I guess I got it back from DH that ONE FLIPPIN TIME we enjoyed each other's company (of course, because my hoohoo was feeling up for the challenge for a change!!!).
Anyway, I know I am totally ranting but need your advice... I could go into labour anytime and what would you think is worse - gobs of stupid ooky cream, or itchy purple angry beaver? I just wanna roll on the carpet and have a wailing screaming hissy fit.
