Monistat while TTC (TMI Warning)

I have done a little research, but I want everyone's thoughts/opinions on this. 

I think I'm developing a yeast infection.  Normally I would just get a Monistat 1 and it would take care of it pretty much over night.  I don't know if it is ok to do this during the 2ww.  Any advice?

    Don't have an answer for you, but I know during pregnancy the doc said using Monistat was fine, but to use the longer versions (5 or 7 I believe?) because the dose wasn't as strong. Dealing with it for seven days is kind of miserable IMO though.

    The longer versions don't necessarily mean that you will have a yeast infection that long. The symptoms usually clear up within the first couple of days. You take it for 7 days to make sure it is completey gone. In my experience anyway.

    I am not certain. I think it should be okay. I was able to use Monistat very early in my pregnancy. The doctor suggested a five day treatment instead of the 1 day. The symptoms were gone by day three.

    If you have a yeast infection, it needs to be treated, I know it is safe to use Monistat or similar generic (miconazole) during pregnancy, so during the 2WW should be fine. If you feel it coming on, you could try eating yogurt, taking probiotics, and I recall taking apple cider vinegar (get the organic kind), can also help combat a yeast overgrowth. (I had a mild yeast infection on my nipples while BF my daughter early postpartum, and that is what was recommended to me by my LC).

    I would treat it. You could ask the pharmacist and see if they know the answer.

    A couple of weeks ago when I was given antibiotics for aUTI (DO NOT RAISE YOUR LEGS IN THE AIR AFTER SEX) they warned me that in some women antibiotics lead to yeast infections.

    They said I could use any over the counter option I liked as long as it wasnt the kind with the pill.

     So regular old Monistat fine, Monistat with the pill = bad news bears.

    I went early in my cycle to be treated by my dr, and she said that you can only use the monistat creams in pregnancy - so think it would be find during 2WW.  She gave me the prescription medicine, but only because at the time I could not be pregnant yet.

    . Good point - sorry, I meant dealing with the Monistat. It's messy and irritating and all around much better to get it out of the way quicker.

    Yogurt applied topically (I know, its flipping weird) works and its a natural remedy.
