    it's quite embarrasing...thing is my doc is closed till next wednesday so i dont know what to do!

    I'd ring your midwife just to make sure. To be honest you can buy what you need off the shelf in the form of canestan. Your MW will be able to advise what the best course of action would be.

    i'm in ireland and we don't see midwives! everything is done between the anti-natal clinic in the hospital and the doctor.

    anti-natal clinic is closed till wednesday too! but i can get emergancy doc appointment if needed.

    dont let on to the pharmacist that you are pregnant, or they wont sell you it.....can someone else buy it for you??

    my midwife just gave me a precription for 3 and said they are fine to use but the pharmacists wont give pregnant ladies them without an actual prescription
