Pros and Cons of Using a Natural Cure for Yeast Infections While Pregnant

During pregnancy, you are not only looking out for your own well-being but also that of your baby. Using a home remedy for yeast infections, as well as other illnesses, will ensure that you do not introduce your baby to foreign chemicals or strange substances while their tiny bodies and internal organ systems are still growing and developing. There is no way of knowing how prescription drugs or over-the-counter medications might affect your baby, as everyone reacts differently to these medicines, so it is best to eliminate them altogether from your yeast infection treatment plan.

 

Choosing a natural cure, therefore, is a great idea because the ingredients are all found in nature and will therefore work in harmony with your and your baby’s bodies to make sure that the yeast infection clears up quickly and naturally. Such cures are also much cheaper than any prescription drugs or over-the-counter medications that your healthcare professional recommends, and you will not have to waste additional time and money going to their office for an appointment. Tea tree oil is one of the best home remedies for yeast infections, as you’ll discover in the next section.

How to Use Tea Tree Oil for Vaginal Yeast Infections

During pregnancy, a woman produces more estrogen than normal: such hormonal changes are normal and to be expected, but this unfortunately means that your body is less able to control the amount of ‘bad’ bacteria that natural occurs in our bodies. One of these bad bacteria is the candida fungus: normally its numbers are kept in check by good bacteria, but during pregnancy it can overgrow and become out of control due to the hormonal changes happening in your body. This overgrowth of candida can lead to a yeast infection, likely in the vagina: this is because candida thrives in a warm, moist environment and the large amounts of estrogen in the vagina mean that the body is even less likely to fight off a yeast infection here.

How to Topically Apply Tea Tree Oil for Vaginal Yeast Infections

Ingredients

  • tea tree oil
  • 1 tampon
  • lubricant

Instructions

  • First place some lubricant on the tip of a non-applicator tampon.
  • Put a few drops of tea tree oil on top (the lubricant will stop the tea tree oil from absorbing into the tampon).
  • Insert the tampon into the vagina and keep it there for at least 1-2 hours.
  • Remove the tampon and discard. Thoroughly wash and rinse the area, making sure to pat dry.
  • You can use this method several times a day, or until the yeast infection has cleared up.

Precautions

If you find using a non-applicator tampon difficult, you can also use a tampon with an applicator: this is done by lifting the top part of the applicator to expose the tampon, then applying the lubricant and tea tree oil before putting the tampon back in the applicator.
