Preventing A Vaginal Yeast Infection While You're Pregnant

Sep 10, 2008
If you're pregnant you have a greater chance of suffering from a vaginal yeast infection. Prevention from an infection is a much better idea than hoping you don't suffer, then needing to take anti fungal drugs while you have a baby growing inside of you.

When you're pregnant, and you need to take drugs or medicines for anything, you put your unborn child in danger, and you also have the risk if inducing premature labour.

As well as drugs and medicines some herbal treatments for yeast infections can harm your unborn child. Before you attempt to treat yourself with anything you must see your doctor first.

Keeping all of this in mind, you can help yourself by taking measures that will help prevent the Candida fungus from infecting your body while you're pregnant.

Eating a healthy diet that is filled with nutrition will help you as well as help the growth of your child. Cutting down on foods that are high in sugar will help prevent the Candida from feeding in your intestines. Sugar is Candida's favorite food, and if you feed it you will never rid it from your body once it is in there.

If you're suffering from sugar cravings then that is a sign that you already have the Candida growing in your intestines. In saying that, pregnant women do get cravings, and if you need sugar in your diet try and get it from fresh fruit.

Eating a natural, sugar free, live yogurt every day will keep your friendly, beneficial bacteria levels up in your intestines. Having a high population of beneficial bacteria in your intestines will help fight off any challenges by the Candida fungus. More beneficial bacteria in your intestines also keeps your immune system strong.

Another way to prevent a vaginal yeast infection is to wear loose fitting clothing. Tight clothing causes warmth and moisture which are the two main environment qualities that fungus needs to breed. Wearing loose fitting white cotton underwear keeps your intimate parts more cooler by letting the area breath.

Another thing you can do is, keep the area dry at all times. If you go swimming change out of your wet swimming costume as soon as possible. Leaving the area wet produces an environment that the Candida fungus will begin to breed in.

These yeast infection prevention techniques will keep your unborn child completely safe. If they still fail to prevent you from suffering from the overgrowth of the Candida fungus, remember to see your doctor before you attempt to treat yourself.
