Candida in pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time that brings a lot of joy to every woman. However, in addition to the joy that pregnancy brings can happen to some unwanted situations. One of these unfortunate situations that may arise during pregnancy is a candida infection. This infection is caused by increased levels of estrogen in the body.Excess estrogen creates a favorable environment for the development of this infection in the genital tract. 

Candidiasis can be undetected for some time. Some symptoms are itching and burning sensation on the outside of the female genitals. You may also notice a creamy discharge with no smell, which sometimes has the appearance of cheese. Intermittent abdominal pain and pain during sexual intercourse may be symptoms of this infection.

If your doctor diagnosed you have this infection, you will buy salve at the pharmacy that you can get without a prescription that is applied over the affected places. This balm has antifungal effect. These ointments are used for long-term treatment of serious infections, but when you are pregnant, the treatment takes a little longer.

If the infection is quite unpleasant, the doctor can prescribe stronger medications and others that will help you solve the problem. You may worry about whether the infection will spread to the baby. Be sure that this does not happen. It is unlikely that this will happen, unless you have a delivery and you are infected with candida.

Thrush can develop in infants during the first weeks of life. Your baby will have white deposits around the mouth or on the tongue that can not be easily removed. Candidiasis is not harmful to the baby, but can be transferred to the mother who nursed him and cause severe irritation around the nipple. Therefore, you must treat candidiasis immediately.

There are several ways by which you can prevent this infection he stops. Wear lightweight, loose fitting clothing. Opt for cotton, especially underwear. Do not wear clothes a few hours each day. This can work in the evening or at night. Quickly take a wet swimsuit. Use mild products for intimate hygiene. Drink as much yogurt and eat more foods that contain probiotics and live cultures of microorganisms that inhibit the development of candidiasis.
