Yeast Infection In Pregnancy – Here Are 3 Safe Ways To Treat It

By Diana Lesky

A lot of women panic when they get a yeast infection in pregnancy, they first of all want to get rid of it in a way that’s safe for them and the baby and also they want to keep their baby from contracting it when it is born.

It’s a tough situation to have to deal with, but if you find yourself here, there are things you can do which are safe:

1. Eat Yogurt

If you find yourself with a yeast infection in pregnancy, what you can try doing is eating yogurt. Yogurt has a lot of live bacteria within it that give off hydrogen peroxide as a byproduct. This is very toxic to the yeast and helps kill them off.

By eating enough yogurt you can essentially kill the yeast from the inside, but be sure that this yogurt is sugar free as sugar is yeast food and would only make things worse.

2. Tampon + Yogurt

Another thing you can consider doing is using yogurt vaginally. It’s quite simple, just apply some yogurt to a tampon and then insert that for about 30-45 minutes.

The healthy bacteria will be reintroduced into your body and it will begin fighting off the yeast. Keep doing this on a daily basis and in 1 or 2 weeks you should see things begin to clear.

3. Tea Tree Oil

Much like the solution above, what were going to do here is first coat a tampon with some olive oil to act as a base, then put a few drops of tea tree oil on top of that.

When you have this, apply it for 30-45 minutes to let the tea tree oil do it’s thing in fighting off the yeast, it’s a powerful anti-fungal agent.

So if you have a yeast infection in pregnancy, these solutions should be of help to you, but they will not get rid of the problem for good. In order to really get this issue handled, you need to kill the yeast spores, this is something few treatments can do.
