Newly pregnant and yeast- professional advice needed

I'd appreciate it if you could advise a treatment I should follow to resolve my current problem.
I am 35 years old and am currently 8 weeks pregnant with my third child.
I have occasional waves of nausea which seem to subside when I eat. Also had terrible constipationa and gas which has now resolved. My main concern currently is the yeast infection I have been trying to resolve for a long time. I had been using herbs and following a yeast free diet prior to pregnancy to control the yeast. I had been doing pretty well, but now feel it starting up again. I am prone to yeast infections, especially when pregnant (suffering with at least 10 with my last child).
I have filled out the questionare that I'd seen on the forum below.

. Describe your main suffering?

Is this safe to take in early pregnancy? thank you for your help!
 
zuzuzu 9 years ago
Homeo remedy is considered as safe during pregnancy if the remedy is indicated on the basis of totality of symptoms. It doesn't contain any medicinal substance in pathologically significant value. Thatswhy i think that this remedy may be taken safely in your case.

I am not yet feeling better. The discharge is now in much more volume and more yellow. I have great redness and vulva burning and a slight pressure to pee.

How quickly should the cal carb have worked and is there something different I can use? It has not been a full 15 days yet, but I am too uncomfortable to wait longer. I tested positive for yeast again on my recent vaginal culture. I am now 9 weeks pregnant. Please advise. Thank you.
