Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

A yeast infection is fine during pregnancy, and over the counter medication is safe to use. BV will need antibiotics from your doctor and should be treated right away since it can cause some problems during pregnancy. Since it's often difficult to differentiate between the two, you need to see your doctor right away for an accurate diagnosis.
