pregnancy tends to make yeast infections more likely.
Diflucan (Fluconazole) is not indicated in the first trimester, but the statistics are only a concern if you took more than 400 mg. per day. The usual dose is 150 mg.
Most importantly, you need to make sure it isn't bacterial vaginosis you have, in which case you'll be taking yeast medication for nothing. The creams are harsh, especially on swollen pregnant vaginal tissue and you don't want to use that if it's not necessary.
Some symptoms including itching, discharge, buring on urination, and smell. However, a white, milky discharge, wihtout any other symptoms, during pregnancy is normal.Source(s): firstname.lastname@example.org mother

Not necessarily because the female genitalia is soooo prone to complications at any given time. A female can get a yeast infection from a variety of origins. Such as bubble baths, putting baby powders in your panties, tight clothes, bath clothes with soap not properly rinsed out, dirty towels, contracting it from a partner sexuallly, not changing wet clothing in a timely manner and soo many other reasons. But, if you think that you have a yeast infection, make an appointment with your GYN or PCP to get it checked. To be on the safe side. Because it could be bacterial vaginosis. And over the counter meds won't make it go away.

It is actually more likely to be infected by yeast during pregnancy.

Yes, because your body seems to produce an excess of everything, and it is mor common during pregnancy to have a yeast infection. I would talk to my OB/GYN about it though.

Very normal. Symptoms are the same as when you aren't pregnant.
You should get your OB/Gyn to look at it though. They don't like you to self medicate while pregnant.
