Can a Yeast Infection Be a Indicator of Pregnancy?

Yeast infections affect warm, moist parts of the body. Learn the signs and symptoms of yeast infections as they appear on the skin, oral and genital areas....
Is is possible to have a yeast infection be the first symptom of pregnancy? I ask because I have never had one while not on the pill. I had them quite often while on the pill, but have been off the pill a couple times (about 10 months this time) and never had one otherwise.
We had sex one week before I felt the infection coming on. This would mean that this was an immediate reaction to a pregnancy. Is this even possible?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Yeast Infection
Well, i'm going to answer my own question! Yes! My yeast infection was the very first symptom of pregnancy. I have taken two first responses the past two days and have a very light but definite second pink line. So if you don't typically get yeast infections when you're off the pill, it may be a sign for you too!! :d

yeast infection an early sign of pregnancy?
I believe I might also be pregnant. I have been charting my ovulation to get pregnant and just two days after ovulation I have a yeast infection. I have had them before on the pill and later in my 1st pregnacy. I hope that it is an early sign of pregnacy, but I will have to wait and see.

My husband had a vesectomy about 9 years ago in his first marriage. We want another baby, but don't want to pay alot of money for a reversal for only a maybe. Anyways, for the past 2 to 3 days, I've been having alot of itching and burning. I think it might be an infection, could this be a sign of pregnancy? I know in my first pregnancy i thought i had one and went to the doctor and found out I was pregnant. Has any one got pregnant when their husband was fixed? Please help

Yeast Infections as an Early Pregnancy Symptom?
Hi. I started researching yeast infections and found this site. I couldn't find any sites that mentioned yeast infections happening this early in pregnancy. After the little I have found, it seems that yeast infections are not necessarily the most common early symptom of pregnancy, but it is possible. after all, a woman's hormones are like a roller coaster ride, especially if she is pregnant.

my husband and I have had sex maybe four or five times before and during my ovulation period. we aren't ttc, but we aren't trying NOT to either.

The day after I ovulated I think I passed out sideways on my bed and slept for 3 hours in the middle of the day. I am rarely that exhausted. I was fine yesterday (3dpo), except for some moodiness and aversion to coffee (i'm a coffee addict!!).

Today (4dpo) I reaaaally didn't want coffee, but I drank a little anyway. I felt so hot all day long and really tired. I just wanted to lay in front of a fan with my clothes off, take a nap. I got 8 GOOD hours of sleep last night, and I have been really energetic and productive this week. So, my tiredness was kind of random. I also have slightly sore boobs. They have grown a little and they hurt all on the sides. My boobs usually hurt a week before my period, but not this early. I had some pain in my lower right abdomen for a couple of hours today. It was slight, but noticeable. I also have a load of white discharge every time I go to the bathroom. I have had a yeast infection (I'm guessing) for maybe two days now (3dpo and 4dpo) and I have never had one before, never.

Now, hear me out, I know that it is way too early to KNOW for sure, but I just want some advice from some moms and what they experienced.
Can you tell me what you guys think? I have bad baby fever and I'm trying to get it out of my head, whether or not it is possible or not.

Hi, I'm 16 years old and I had unprotected sex the day after my period stopped and I think I have a yeast infection but I've read where it could be a sign of pregnancy. I've also had friends comment on how my breast seem to be bigger all of a sudden. I also randomly threw up the other morning. I'm scared

Have a really bad what I think is a yeast infection. Strange thing is, the AZO yeast I took isn't working. And also my period was supposed to start like yesterday or the day before, and still nothing as of today. Probably wait until the end of the week before making any rash judgments, but it's not impossible I could be pregnant?
