What happens if you have yeast infection in L&D?


If they detect or if you tell the nurses/doctor that there is active yeast infection while you're in active labor, will they still deliver vaginally or will they start an emergency section?

Sorry if my question seems ignorant.

Really??? They'd allow for a baby to be delivered and get smothered in yeast infection? Hmm...

Yeah, for me, it wasn't until the middle of my 3rd trimester that I got YI. That was the first in forever, actually. That went away with the 7-day treatment. But it seems as if it's coming back again. So that's why I asked about delivery method just in case it doesn't go away in time when I may go into labor mode.

lol The baby isn't going to get "smothered." It could give them thrush (an oral yeast infection), but that's not usually a big deal.

Oh really...haha. Okay, thanks for the clarification. I had a different visualization lol.

Okay, so I guess it's not that bad. I can stop worrying now.

I've had a yeast infection for weeks and was told not to bother treating it unless it was painful/itchy, which it's not. If it was a real problem I'd think they'd be doing everything to make sure I got rid of it ASAP as I'm so close to delivery.

I asked this same question in another thread earlier and someone said that she delivered with a yeast infection and her baby developed thrush shortly after, but that it was easily treated.

I'm pretty sure they will just treat it after birth

Does the same go if you have a bladder infection? I mean, I guess that doesnt matter as much as yeast would, but I figure i'd ask

I could be wrong but I don't think a UTI really matters during labor since the infection is in the urethra, not the vagina. I've never heard of them causing problems anyway.
