    Just wondered if anyone had any home remedies/tips for thrush?? Never really had it before and i know its common in pregnancy. Docs have given me cream but its driving me mad lol. Also got to start some anti biotics for a urine infection but have been told to wait till this has cleared up.. :roll:

    Tri hoping here. lol

    If you google remedies for thrust whilst pregnant it will give you list of home remedies that you can use, such as natural bio yoghurt. I had this in tri 1 but can't remember what the other remedies were. Also watch that once you get cleared up and start antibiotics that it doesn't flare up again.

    yeah they did say that the antibiotics may cause it again but then they will give me more cream but they dont want me taking the antibiotics together. x

    The pessaries are the only way to treat thrush I find.

    I am very susceptible to it and get it whenever I am prescribed a course of anti bs. I always get a prescription for canesten pessaries at the same time to treat them simultaneously. Not sure why they wouldn't do that for you but if you have been advised not to use them at the same time then probs best to stick to that!

    Hope it clears soon for you x

    Aw, when did you use the pessary? It usually works fairly quickly for me, i.e. in a day or 2. Especially after it starts 'coming out' sorry TMI

    The pessary is great, you can use all the cream you like but only the pessary seems to clear it up for me. I can't see any home remedies soothing the itch more than the cream to be honest.
