After you Become Pregnant You Have a Good Chance of Getting a Yeast Infection

Aug 17, 2007
For the many women who suffer from yeast infections pregnancy can sometimes be the cause of it. In other words, even though you might not have a yeast infection before you were pregnant, after you become pregnant you have a good chance of getting a yeast infection.

This is due entirely to the fact that when a woman is pregnant her hormonal balance is thrown completely off balance. This in turn can lead the yeast producing Candida Albicans bacteria to thrive, as you can see with yeast infections pregnancy states of hormonal imbalance, plays a crucial role.

To put it very simply, yeast producing Candida Albicans bacteria thrives and survives in dark places which are moist and humid. Since this just about sums up the state of being for your vagina, it means that yeast infections will normally occur in your vagina although they have been known to occur in the mouth, in the armpits, and between the toes.

Under normal circumstances the bacteria live in your vagina in small manageable numbers, but when your hormones get thrown off balance, these small numbers can overthrow the good bacteria and grow almost exponentially in number. This means that for yeast infections pregnancy is a good state of being for the bacteria to thrive in.

It should perhaps also be noted that since a woman's immune system is weakened during pregnancy to allow the fetus to grow unharmed within the womb, yeast infections pregnancy symptoms can occur more readily and sometimes more than once.

If this happens, that is if you have yeast infections pregnancy recurring symptoms you might want to have it checked out thoroughly just to rule out any other underlying cause.

Most times if you suffer from yeast infections pregnancy makes you more susceptible therefore if your partner also has a yeast infection you can get it again in spite of your having cured the first time around.

It's also true that with yeast infections pregnancy treatments should be carefully looked at before being used to ascertain that they truly are safe to use and that they won't cause harm to the developing fetus, or that they won't cause you to go into premature labor.

This holds true for natural and herbal remedies, as well as for prescription, and over the counter medications as well.

Also, if you believe that you may be suffering from yeast infections pregnancy is something that should be taken into account as well as if you're near to term and want to breast feed.

Breast feeding also takes its toll on your hormonal system and you might find that your yeast infections pregnancy symptoms have carried over post-pregnancy. What you need to do in this case is to monitor the progress of your infection and live a healthy a lifestyle as possible.
