Hi Gerdaer,

Thank you for posting!

I am sorry you are suffering from a very uncomfortable pregnancy-- as if you needed something else to cause discomfort! During pregnancy, it is recommended to stick with vaginal creams and suppositories only. These include: Monistat, Vagistat, Gyne-Lotrimin or Mycelex-- sometimes you can find them in the less messy suppository form.

The usual oral treatment, Diflucan, is not recommended for pregnant women because we don't quite know how safe it is for the baby. The cream/suppository treatment may take 10-14 days for it to be completely gone but it's the safest way.

Hope this helps and feel better!
