If I’m pregnant and I get a vaginal infection, should I worry about my baby too?

Pregnancy

Vaginal infections can affect your baby. Yeast infections during pregnancy do not normally travel up into the uterus to harm the baby in any way. The concerns are mainly about the discomfort of the mother due to itching, and soreness. Recent research has shown that BV increases the chances of premature birth or miscarriages. Pregnant women are ten times more prone to get vaginal infections than normal women. So if you’re pregnant, regularly visit your doctor.

 

What if I’m pregnant and I have a vaginal infection (which is common for most pregnant women), is it safe to take oral and topical medications at this time?

It will only be unsafe to take any medication for vaginal infection during pregnancy if it was not recommended by your Gynaecologist. Once you suspect you have a vaginal infection while pregnant, immediately visit your doctor who will provide you with guidance on what kinds and dosages of medications you should use.
