Hi there, Eric Bakker here again, author of Candida Crusher and another question.
Can I still get pregnant with recurring yeast infections?
You can; of course, you can still get pregnant if you have a recurring yeast infection. But it wouldn’t really be a good idea to do that. It would make more sense to get rid of your vaginal infection before you conceive for many different reasons.
I think for comfort, in particular, you’ll find if you can go through all your three stages of your pregnancy without a yeast infection, you’re going to have a better pregnancy and a better delivery, wouldn’t you agree? I think you would. And also you don’t really want to have rampant vaginal infection during the delivery time. It’s not really something that many mothers would like to have. I can assure you.
So you still can get pregnant. It is possible to treat a vaginal infection during pregnancy, particularly in the third trimester, but it’s not something I really encourage you do in the first trimester, in particular, although there are various douche protocols that you can utilize.
So to answer that question, can I still get pregnant with a recurring yeast infection? Yes, you can. But I would prefer that you would treat and eradicate this infection prior to falling pregnant. And you can read all about how to treat acute yeast infections in Chapter 4 and 5 of my book, Candida Crusher. Chapter 5, in particular, I outline quite a good protocol and many different treatment plans for you, some of the best ones I’ve found for vaginal infection.
So I hope that answers your question. Thank you for your question.
