Recurring yeast infection

Hi mummies! I’m in my 2nd trimester now and I’ve been having recurring yeast infections despite having treatment. I think this is the 3rd or 4th time already. Anyone has the same experience? Any remedies? Thanks!

Yeast infections are especially common during pregnancy because hormone changes can disrupt the pH balance of the vagina. Wash with diluted teatree oil. You may consider eating yogurt regularly if you frequently get yeast infections or are on antibiotics.  Use unscented products, such as unscented pantyliners or femine wash. Breathable cotton underwear is good too. Talk to your doctor if your yeast infection doesn’t improve after using home remedies or OTC medications. You may need a prescription medication.
