Are yeast infections common during pregnancy?
Developing a yeast infection during pregnancy is actually more common than at any other time of a woman’s life. To treat this condition, it is safe to use over-the-counter products, such as Monistat. However, if you are early in your pregnancy, before 12 weeks, it is important that the cream be used externally only. After 12 weeks, it is safe to gently use the applicator internally.
