Pregnant or breast-feeding?

If you are pregnant or breast-feeding and need to treat a yeast infection you should consult with your doctor. Pregnancy increases the risk of yeast infections, probably due to increased estrogen levels. Vaginal treatments are preferred over oral treatments for pregnant women, since only a small amount of the vaginal medication is actually absorbed into the bloodstream. With pills, a larger amount enters the blood, where it may harm your baby.
