shan408 :  I’m sure you probably researched ways to minimize yeast infections…. cotton undies, changing/showering promptly after sweat/exercise, not hanging out in a wet bathing suit, etc. I would definitely bring this up with your doctor, there’s a stat that says almost half of yeast infections self diagnosed are actually bacterial vaginosis. I had a yeast infection in the tww a few cycles ago, only the 7 day Monistat is safe for possible pregnancy (which is kind of a sex kill). There’s no chance you could be getting yeast infections from your partner? Some people also get relief from kefir milk.

I suffered from chronic yeast infections while we were TTC too. I’d always get them after my fertile window – pretty sure all the BDing is what would set it off. I started taking probiotics, which helped prevent them. 

In terms of whether the yeast infections are preventing you from getting pregnant…it’s hard to say. When in your cycle do you tend to get them? The cycle I got pregnant, I got a yeast infection right after ovulation and my doctor prescribed me a specific medication that’s safe for pregnant women just in case I was pregnant. Pregnant women aren’t supposed to take fluconazole (sp?) – the pill that’s typically prescribed for YI – so if you’ve been taking that maybe it could be interfering? I would talk to your doctor about it for sure.

The candida diet. It felt kind of extreme to me, but worth it in the end. 

Eta: I can’t speak to yeast infections and ttc, but chronic yeast infections is miserable and the diet was a miracle for me.

Try taking RePHresh Pro-B. It’s a probiotic designed for vaginal health and ph balance down there which ultimately prevents yeast infections and BV.

For the record I usually always get yeast infections after antibiotics but I tried taking this while on them and I never got an infection after! Worked for me!

I used to suffer from regular yeast infections. I actually cut yeast out of my diet(wheat/gluten) and I don’t get them anymore! If you get more than 3 a year I would seriously consider this!!!
