I think I have a yeast infection and the nurse at my Dr's office said Monistat is safe after the first trimester and to just use that to get rid of it. Being the worry wort I am I'm just concerned if its completely safe. I'm getting mixed reviews on the internet so I'm wondering what your opinions are and if any of you have used this while pregnant. I'm just using it externally right now but I figured I would only use half the dose at night and not insert the applicator all the way. It just seems really close to the cervix... the applicators are so long. I def. can't stand to not treat it though... its driving me nuts :-(.

definitly use it! the 3 or the 7 day, the 7 day would be considered the "safest" since it has the lowest dose..

I've even used diflucan 2 or 3 times in this pregnancy, and a 3 day vaginal cream treatment too (I am allergic to monistat, but something similiar)

Remember your doctor wouldn't tell you to do something thats going to hurt you, and nurses HAVE to check with physicians before telling you to use something--its the law.

It's perfectly fine, and a yeast infection can and will get harder and harder to get rid of if you dont clear it up soon.

Good luck!

If you have had any problems with your cervix do NOT use it. I can't quite remember if you have had PTL already or if I'm thinking about someone else (sorry)...but any cervical changes means it isn't safe to use because it will get into the uterus.

It's safe to use but if it doesn't work for you call your doc back. My OB gave me a prescription cream called Terazol that works much better.

I've used it. I definitely used the 7 day dosage because it is less irritating and a lower dose. I think there are risks if you don't treat it.

Even if it's safe, I think I would have my doctor check it out just to be sure it is a yeast infection and you get the right treatment. I tend to play everything pretty safe when pregnant.
