You should see your doctor immediately, only a doctor can properly diagnose a yeast infection. That said, regular yeast infection creams and suppositories are safe during pregnancy. Only oral medications are unsafe. I don't know what kind of cream your friend's doctor gave her, or if that's what caused her to lose her baby. I had a yeast infection and treated it with a suppository and cream and it went away immediately. My baby is extremely healthy. The cream shouldn't affect a developing baby in any way since it can't get through the amniotic sac.

Yeast infections are common while pregnant. You should go see your doctor and they will diagnose you and give you a cream. Like V said, I don't think that would have caused your friends baby to die. Tell your doctor your concerns and they will give you all the info.

I had one during my pregnancy and they told me they could perscribe me cream or i could go to the store and get a kit. The kit will not harm the baby in any way.
