Since about 5 weeks, I've had a yeast infection. The doctor recommended Canesten without the applicator, so I started taking it at about 5 weeks, but noticed after about 2 days of it that I was spotting red/pink. The infection wasn't bothering me but I was freaking out about the spotting, so I stopped taking the medication. About 4 days ago, I noticed I was super itchy again and had a tiny bit of spotting, so I went and bought Monistat 7 and have been using it for 2 days. This morning, I had red/pink spotting again. I am waiting for a u/s on Friday, as the one at 5 weeks was too early to see anything. I'm not cramping or anything and still have my pregnancy symptoms. With my son, I spotted all the way up to 20 weeks and everything was fine. At my 5 week u/s, they did say they saw absolutely no bleeding coming from inside of my uterus so that was reassuring. So my question is, Do you think the Monistat or the yeast infection could be causing my spotting? Would you keep going on the medication, despite the spotting? My doctor said its fine, but its making me nervous.
Thanks for your replies!
