    So the 2nd time in the few days and thrush has returned. The MW has asked me to go to GP for swabs. Will this be similar to having a smear because I'm not sure i can do it if that's the case because there's a lot of irritation. And also, I hate smears :/

    I have had to have this too!! Its not like a smear as it doesnt go as far up and isnt as painful. Its like a giant cotton bud. My doctors let me do it myself so hopefully yours will too.

    I hope this helps. :)

    Very much thank you! Did it confirm thrush if you don't mind me asking?

    I can sympathise! Speculems are not fun!!

    I had a tilted womb before I fell pregnant. Used to cause no end of problems! It's sorted itself out now though. :)
