Pregnancy yeast infections are one of the hardest of womens yeast infections to get rid of. There are also a few risks associated with childbirth and when trying to conceive that every one should be aware of. They should not be taken lightly for your baby's health, as well as your partners.
Some doctors will say it is totally safe to try to conceive even if you have a vaginal yeast infection. This is absolutely crazy thinking, since you are risking the over all health of your partner. During sex, the urethra of the male is susceptible to a male yeast infection. The yeast can enter his urethra and give him a male yeast infection and he can give it right back to you at a later time. Carefully consider this before you both make a commitment, please.
If you have a pregnancy yeast infection during childbirth, it has been found that the yeast infection can be given to the infant through the mouth as it passes through the vaginal canal. The baby will usually develop thrush, an oral yeast infection. This will look like dried patches of milk but will not rub off easily and can be very painful for your baby.
When babies are born, they have a sterile digestive system, there is no beneficial bacteria present in their bodies. Beneficial bacteria, known as acidophulis, B. bifidum, and others are introduced by the mother during passage thru the vaginal canal and in the milk along with colostrum, which activates and builds the immune system. These soon to be large bacterial colonies in their intestines are their first line of defense against foreign bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This is why they can easily get an infection during childbirth, they are totally defenseless at that time.
Breast-feeding also introduces the eight essential sugars that are involved in every function in the body, especially the immune system. They are known as monosaccharides and are involved in cell-to-cell communication, the uptake of vitamins and minerals, the disposal of waste, and cellular repair and growth.
Breast-feeding is recommended until the baby is a year old if at all possible. Buy a pump if you have to, to be able to feed them as long as possible. As long as you are feeding or pumping the milk your body should produce it.
If they do get an oral candida infection, oral Nystatin has been found to be very effective as well as safe. You can also see the treating childrens yeast page so you can treat their infection naturally.
I do definitely recommend that if you get a pregnancy yeast infection while pregnant to treat it naturally and avoid modern drugs if at all possible. The prescription medicines are extremely hard on the liver both in adults and the fetus.
How To Treat a Pregnancy Yeast Infection Safely
Because yeast infections are caused by a lack of good bacteria and sometimes hormonal changes. I recommend you take a quality probiotic in large doses to build up the bacterial colonies in the intestine and vagina. I would avoid treating the hormonal imbalances until after the baby is born if they do not correct themselves.
The best probiotics to take for pregnancy yeast infections are Profase, at a dose of one or two capsules twice a day, or the 11-Strain probiotic powder at a dose of 1 scoop 2 times a day minimum. Go ahead and review the articles and make your own decision on which one is best for you.
Sf722 contains pharmaceutical grade undecylenic acid derived from castor bean oil. It is a mono-unsaturated fatty acid that occurs naturally in the body's perspiration. It has been found to be approximately six times more effective than caprylic acid extracted from coconut oil and is helpful in maintaining a healthy balance of intestinal and vaginal flora.
is also totally non-toxic and has been proven to explode the nucleus
of the yeast cell from the inside out effectively killing it. You should
take 2 tbls by mouth 2 times a day and cook with with it as well
because it is very heat stable. It can be used to make suppositories as described here by Ion.
Coconut oil capsules can also be used directly in the vagina to kill vaginal yeast. It is best to insert these at night before bed. Be sure to wear underwear with a pad because the oil will leak.
All these things are absolutely 110% safe. They will not harm you and your baby in any way shape or form.
