Yeast infections are much more common during pregnancy. According to the American Pregnancy Association, many women will experience a yeast infection during their second trimester. No medical evidence has shown that yeast infections can cause birth defects or any other pregnancy complications. Here are some of the things that all pregnant women should know about yeast infections during pregnancy, however. It is important to be aware of the symptoms of a yeast infection. Yeast infections cause vaginal discharge which is white in color and usually cottage cheese-like in texture, pain
during urination and sexual intercourse and itching, irritation and a red rash outside of the vagina. If you notice any of these symptoms, the best thing that you can do is talk to your doctor.
While yeast infections are never pleasant to deal with - during pregnancy or any other time - it is important to keep in mind that they do not cause any pregnancy complications. While it is important to use topical medications only and make sure that the problem is really a yeast infection, there is generally not much to worry about.View Thread
