Of course, I’m not even going to attempt to imagine what it might be like to be pregnant and on antibiotics at the same time, with Candida. So, I’ll just say this; if my sister were pregnant, and she had to go on an antibiotic, I would advise her to stay away from any additional antifungal and instead increase the probiotics as well as prebiotics. As you stated, since the antibiotic will kill the bacteria but not the yeast allowing the yeast to multiply and fill the space left by the bacteria, it makes sense to keep the flora replenished and flourishing as much as possible. In my opinion at least – it’s the best chance at holding your ground with the Candida while on the antibiotic.
I don’t really believe in luck, but if there’s any out there, I’m wishing you all of it.
