Yeast Infection and Pregnancy - professional help needed

I'd really appreciate it if you could kindly advise a treatment I should follow to resolve my current/incurring problem.
I am 34 years of age and am currently 5 months pregnant with my first child.
All has been going well, which I am very thankful for. My main concern currently is the yeast infection I have been trying to resolve for a long time. I feel it probably started when I was an adolescent but wasn't diagnosed until later on.
I have filled out the questionare that I'd seen on the forum below.

. Describe your main suffering?
A recurring yeast infection, currently very moderate slightly whitish or transparent discharge, but burning sensation in the labia in the past few days most likely due to the sugar overdose over Christmas holidays. Still craving sugar but trying to eat almost none except for ice cream that I cannot say no to. I have been eating very little bread and carbs (with the exception of rice) over the past few years but thrush has been a recurring problem nonetheless.

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
A very sensitive stomach that reacts to stress and results in a painful, burning sensation; fatigue that I currently attribute to pregnancy, back ache, very rare but strong migraines (sometimes once a year or less)

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
Not knowing how to defend myself and react less to outside stress, not knowing how to deal with it

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?
Helpless and down

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
Most probably the feeling of helplessness in early childhood.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?
I am tired in the mornings and evenings, the yeast infection symptoms are more pronounced around that time too

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?
Sugars contribute to itchiness, cream helps in calming it

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?
Not currently

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
Hot and dry is best, but I live in a rather humid country, with cold humid winters and hot humid summers

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.
I am moody, caring, sensitive, generally mild and agreeable, attentive, caring, mostly quiet, easily made nervous by external stimuli, rather easily offended, irritable when tired mentally or physically, sometimes very active, sometimes lazy

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?
Used to be very afraid of thunderstorms as a child
- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?
Yes, I need it
- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?
- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
weeping, talking to one self etc?
When I am nervous or down I sometimes start tearing out the split ends in my hair (not pulling entire hairs but pulling the split ends)
- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?
I love my husband and am very excited about our baby who's on his away, I am less close to my mother than I used to be as I realise she is difficult and manipulative, there is no open confilct or disagreement, we are in touch but I know better what she's like even though she can still make me upset at times.
I am on ok terms with my father (only when he is around all day his irritability and character do not always rub well on me but it used to be much worse years ago), not particularly close to my brother. I have friends who I love and respect, they are not many but they are a great few, I also like my husband's family, both parents and siblings.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
I often dream of how disintegrated and disfuncitonal my family is (parents and brother). Lately I have been dreaming

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?
I always crave sweets and fruit, not particularly averse to anything

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?
Normal to less

14. How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?
Normal in quantities but I eat more often than normally probably due to pregnancy

15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?
Not in particular, but it has to be tasty and good quality

16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?
Normal to less, cold feet and hands

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?
Regular to less, constipation happens under stress or too many carbs

18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?
Thankfully I sleep well, mostly on my side ( left)

19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general?
Yes and it upsets me when the yeast infection does not allow me to feel and experience fully

20. What peculiar or strange sensation do you have in any part of your body at times? Do you sometimes feel ‘ as if…..’ in some part of the body?
I have a sensitive knee (left) that I'd been operated on twice due to an accident and it hurts when it is humid (and cold). Last time it felt like some jaw had bitten into it (due to the cold).

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?
Conventional medicine mostly (deflucan, etc)

22. What major diseases are running in your family?
Diabetes (3 cases), easily inflamable stomach

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance.
Dark fine hair, brown eyes, fair complextion, slim, medium-tall with delicate hands and feet

If you are not having normal menstrual cycles, please answer the following questions:

- Are the periods early, regular or late in general? How long do they last?
Before pregancy periods were almost never regular (until last year) and rather scarse
- Do you suffer from any kind of physical or mental discomfort before, during or after the periods?
Irritability and moodyness a few days before
- Is the flow scanty, normal or excessive?
- Is the blood thick bright red or pale watery?
Started red turning to paler
- Do you notice any clots in the flow?
The first day or the day before the period

I hope my answers have been clear and extensive.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Thank you in advance.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take three doses of Sepia 30c at a gap of 4 hours for 2 days and see how it affects your symptoms in the next 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Thank you very much, will update

Dear Dr. Kadwa,
thank you for your kind advice: I finished taking Sepia 30C two days ago and felt an immediate improvement while taking it: the irritation and burning sympoms have diminished greatly and I generally feel more energised and positive. Even waking up has been easier. I am planning to watch how it progresses in the next 15 days, but would like to know what I could do to maintain these effects and a good energy level, as I found it totally liberating.
I would also like to know whether I need to take something for my stomach/intestinal flora to help prevent candidosis in the future.
Thank you again, kind regards.

sepia is a deep acting remedy and it should take care of everything. So i don't think that you should take any other homeopathic remedy.

Please read my posts on the breathing exercises called as Anulom Vilom Pranayam by following the link given below. Please practise this pranayam regularly for 15-20 minutes preferably in a garden early in the morning. Please practise it very gently without giving jerks to any organs. You may practise at any other convinient time. The only restriction that you have to follow is not to do these exercises within 5 hours after meals. You can have meals not within 15 minutes after finishing these exercises.
This is great hormonal balancer and it should help you a lot.

Thank you Doctor.
I have been using Sawitri Pranayam (8 in - pause 4- 8 out), which has been helping me with sleep greatly and I will integrate the Anulom Vilom in the morning.
Thank you again, I will update.

Dear Dr. Kadwa,
I have finished taking Sepia about six days ago and have developed an ingrown toe nail in the past few days. It is quite swollen and painful. I have been trying to keep it clean and wash my feet with water and salt. Could it still be related to thrush? I remember having athlete's foot (very annoying and long to cure) together with thrush a year ago. On the trush level, I have felt slight itchiness in the past few days.
I would appreciate your comments, thank you.

Please take three doses of Graphites 30c at a gap of 4 hours for one day (not daily) and report back after 1 week.
kadwa last decade
Dr. Kadwa,
I hope you are well.
I took Graphites last Saturday but had to go and have the two toenails cut up by a professional pedicurist on the same. The inflammation had become too strong and I could hardly walk.
The redness and pain got better almost immediately. I had to have another toe nail cut through yesterday (left foot this time) as I noticed it was starting to get inflamed.
I am not taking anything right now and want to make sure I no longer have the yeast infection. There have been some random mild itching episodes in the past few days.
Thank you in advance.

You may take Sepia 30c thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours for one day whenever you think that the problem is back on sustained basis. If 30 potency stops working you should step up the potency to 200. Please don't repeat unnecessarily or frequently. This is regarding your earlier problem. As far as inward growing toe nail is concerned you did the right thing.

Dear Dr. Kadwa,
thank you again for your help as I seem to be doing much better on the gyno front, and my latest exam went well.. I also practice the pranayama you'd suggested every morning and
really appreciate all your help and advice.
I would like to inquire on another aspect of my preganancy so far that has been causing me a bit of worry : I seem to be putting weight constantly lately and am always craving food. It is a different feeling from actual hunger, but I still eat almost every hour. I try to maintain my diet as healthy as possible with a lot of fruit and veggies and small portions, but I do crave carbs and sweets almost al the time. My metabolisms seems to have slowed down together with the gastrointestinal tract and I really want to avoid putting on too much weight.
Is there something I could do to help?
Thank you in advance.

Please go through the following write-up. Please don't take any tissue salt on the day you take a homeopathic remedy. You may start the following tissue salts and see whether it helps.

There is one bio-chemic combination product that is available as bc 26. BC 26 is called as bio-chemic combination for easy parturition.

It's composition is
calc fluor 6x
calc phos 6x
mag phos 6x
kali phos 6x

in equal proportion.

Those who can get bc-26 may take 4 pellets of this combination during pregnancy thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours. Those who can't get this combination may buy the individual tissue salts given above and take 1 pellet of each tissue salt thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours.

There are various opinions among the prescribers. Some prescribers say that instead of mag phos, ferrum phos (alongwith the other three) should be taken upto 9 months and when the ninth month starts then only mag phos (alongwith the other three) should be taken.

Some prescribers say that these salts should be taken only on alternate weeks. But i am a liberal prescriber when it comes to prescribing tissue salts. So you can take the tissue salts during the pregnancy in any way you like out of the ways given above.

Please note that tissue salts act at nutritional plane and these salts may be taken together. The principle of one remedy at a time applies only to homeopathic remedies taken in potencies 30c and above.
kadwa last decade
Dear Dr,
thank you for the salt prescription, I am not familiar with bc 26 or the salts, will read up on them and order at the local pharmacy.
I hate to complain again but while I was on Sepia 30 Ch (over 3 weeks ago) I had noticed a tiny growth (seemed like a wart) on the anus, and attributed it to slow and strained bowel movement. However, it it did not finish there, unfortunately. Last night I discovered another wart on my clitoris and yet another on one of the labia. I thought and hoped these were ingrown pubic hairs but after looking closer this morning I have to admit these are warts.
Please tell me how this is possible.. and what i should do. I am also afraid of passing it to my husband. This whole trouble is making me very sad.
Thank you, always.

Please take three doses of Acidum Nitricum 30c (Nitric Acid 30) at a gap of 4 hours for 2 days and see how it affects your symptoms in the next 15 days. It is indicated for ano-genital warts and straining while passing stool.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.
