Tea tree oil safe in vagina?

I have suffered from yeast infections for almost 3 years, pretty much every single day. It is uncomfortable and truly sucks. I've learnt to live with it though because my doctor continuously keeps telling me to just eat more yogurt. I'm trying that along with changing my diet completely. 
I recently found out I was pregnant(4 months ago) since then the infections have gotten a little bit worse and I have stumbled upon some natural remedies that no one seems to be able to tell me if they are safe to use or not.. quite annoying. Do you know if it is safe to dab a small amount of tea tree oil on my panties once a day to help cure everything?

I would not put tea tree oil in my vagina. I've done it in the past and let me tell you, I seriously regretted it, because it just burned. You have to be careful with tea tree oil, it's not gentle at all. Sometimes it can do more damage than other oils as well.

The problem with oils also is they keep your skin too wet. I know that oils like coconut oil is a wonderful antifungal, but I just never felt right putting it in my vagina.

I would seriously just get on the right diet and take oral antifungals and probiotics as well. You can succeed, you can get rid of this yeast infection. Maybe you can find a safe diluted form of tea tree oil or oil of oregano or some other oil, that will not burn.

check out boric acid in 00 capsuIes.  ask your ob/gyn if it is safe because of the baby.  Many women report fast relief from using this method.
