    I'd give her a call or maybe make a GP appointment. Just looked up Canesten on Google, and you can't have it if you're pregnant, so you can't just nip to the pharmacy and pick that up. Maybe there is something the GP can prescribe.

    I went to see the nurse at the gp's, you can have canestan pessaries & that's what she prescribed....worked a treat. You get 3 days worth but can just buy them yourself in boots. It's the canestan tablets you can't have. Mine hasn't been back since x

    Don't worry it will clear up soon now but it's such a pain I used to get thrush off and on before preg and so far touch wood have been ok during preg which is odd as I expected it to rear it's head again I do hate it it's horrible. It makes u so uncomfy x

    I'm suffering from thrush, so bloody uncomfortable to. Nightmare to see my gp so after esearching what I could use I took myself off to Superdrug to get Canesten pessary, no chance would they sell it to me pregnant!! Next stop, self checkout at Tesco lol wayhey!! No questions asked!! Used the pessary Saturday night and must say the symptoms have not eased up really. The cream actually stings and burns slightly when used externally as I'm that red and sore. I only have 4 weeks til I'm due, just hope it eases up and doesnt return after birth xx
