Yeast Infection and Pregnancy - How to Get Rid of It?

More than 75% of women are exposed to yeast infections. With pregnancy, this increase is likely to increase. This is mainly due to the higher levels of hormone estrogen produced by the body and makes it ideal for yeast growth in the reproductive tract. About 80% of yeast infections are caused by Candida albicans, which is found in the vagina in minimal amounts. The beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus is constantly checking for unwanted growth of Candida albicans.

The symptoms of Candida infection during pregnancy are

1. Severe itching, irritation and redness in the vagina

2. Thick, white, odorless discharge from vagina

3. Burn sensation when urinating

4. Pain during sex

Reasonable cause

1. The immune system weakens during pregnancy to help spread the yeast infection.

2. Drastic hormone changes that occur during pregnancy are also responsible for yeast infections.

3. The presence of more sugar in vaginal secretions helps in the multiplication of yeast.

Prevention and recovery

In cases of mild yeast infections, maintaining a clean hygiene relieves discomfort. But if the infection is ignored and untreated, it can cause more complications to spread the infection to newborns. Prevention specialists avoid prescribing antifungal and antibiotic drugs to curb the infection as this may have adverse effects on the fetus. It's best to choose a natural remedy and a home that is completely safe.

1. Regular intake of ape vinegar mixture in water to the affected area reduces the infection. Adding garlic to the mix also gives good results.

2. Curd or yogurt is one of the best natural remedies for treating vaginal infections as it replaces the beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus. Applying a tampon soaked in yoghurt in the affected area helps in healing the infection.

3. Similarly, adding yoghurt to your daily diet or taking 2-3 cups of buttermilk helps in killing Candida.

4. Apply a mixture of olive leaf extract and grape seed extract in a glass of water in the affected area to provide the desired comfort.

5. Reduce the intake of sugar and carbohydrates as yeast in sugar, infections can be significantly reduced.

Some useful Prohibitions -

1. Cleanliness and dryness of the vagina should be maintained to keep it moisturized. Yeast grows in damp areas.

2. Wear tight clothing, synthetic clothing should be avoided.

3. Avoid wearing wet clothes like swimwear for a long time.

4. The use of vaginal spray, deodorant must be limited to prevent yeast infection.

It is always wise to treat yeast infections during early pregnancy to prevent many complications. But if the condition is not controlled, one may need antibiotic treatment prescribed by the medico.
