Boric acid for BV while pregnant?

Hi all,

I apologize if this information is somewhere, but I've looked through the community and Google and haven't come up with a clear answer. If it's right under my nose, please let me know and delete my post.

I'm currently going through my second case of BV in the last few months and have been given antibiotics from my doctor. I was on these same pills last time and got an AWFUL yeast infection afterwards. I take a probiotic every day (as well as eat yogurt) regardless of if I am taking antibiotics or not, but I know I'm still going to get a YI once I'm done with this round of pills. I've been reading all about boric acid and was planning on getting the supplies today, but I literally just found out that I'm pregnant. I'm assuming that means a big NO to the boric acid, but I just wanted to make sure. If I can't use boric acid, besides the yogurt and the probiotics, I'll probably just start taking garlic pills. I normally take those if I get a YI anyway (I'm a diabetic and have had my fair share.) Ugh, I hate YIs so much.

I'd be pissed that all of the unprotected sex threw my vagina's balance off and caused the BV but, well, the payoff is totally worth it. :) Thanks everyone!
