persistent yeast infection

I know that yeast infections are due to the hormonal changes in our bodies during pregnancy. However, I am finding that starting about 13 weeks with both pregnancies, I am finding that I get a yeast infection and I can't get rid of it. So far, I have been on Terazol 7 and another nasty 1 day treatment. Nothing works. This is the 2nd week and I'm going crazy. Last pregnancy, I snuck and took a Diflucan when I was 20 weeks. It worked like a charm. I'm tempted to do it this time too. Can you suggest an alternative? My Perinatologist and my OBs (I see two as my OB is on maternity leave) don't seem to think it's a big deal. However, it's really making life unbearable.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my silly question.

Diflucan is often used in pregnancy for the treatment of yeast infections. Talk to your doctor and let them know your concerns about the infection and see if they will prescribe Diflucan for you again.
