Can Flagyl cause yeast infections?

I am 32 weeks pregnant, and 3wks ago, I was dxd with BV and given Flagyl by mouth for 1wk. For the last 3days, I've experienced burning, swelling, itching and pain around the vagina and noticed severe increase in clumpy, odorless discharge. Its painful to urinate, wipe or clean the area. I am trying to keep it dry and clean. Clothes hurt, but I can't run around naked. I have a dr appt with my midwife Tuesday, but I still have to make it until then. Is there anything I can do now to ease this?

any antibiotic can potentially cause a yeast infection.. you might want to phone your doctor to see what he/she suggests for the itching-pain-burning. there are quite a few over the counter creams for external use but because of being pregnant you should check with your OB before using them. hope this helps
