What if I have vaginal candidiasis in week 7 of pregnancy?

It is very common for pregnant women to develop a vaginal infection due to increased estrogen. In principle, fungi are not usually transmitted to the fetus. However, it is important for the woman to see a doctor so that the appropriate treatment can be applied. A heavy vaginal discharge could be a symptom of candidiasis.
