Vaginal Yeast Infections During Pregnancy

By Nabta Team

The rise in oestrogen levels during pregnancy as well as changes in the vagina’s acidity levels make it more susceptible to yeast infection during this period. A yeast infection can manifest as itching or burning sensation in your vagina, vaginal rash, burning sensation while peeing as well as a whitish vaginal discharge which doesn’t have any sort of smell. Early detection of a vaginal yeast infection can help with treatment: instead of taking oral antifungal medication, the yeast infection can be treated with an anti-fungal ointment. This is especially significant during pregnancy as you are trying to avoid as many medicines as possible.
