    I think that I have either got thrush or bacterial vaginosis so when I was at the mw yesterday she got me to do a swab to check. Im not sure if noal cream etc is ok I think it is but thouht I would check as I was at the mw anyway. If you go to a pharmacy and ask to speak to the actual pharmacist I would think they could advise on what is ok.

    I constantly have thrush and i was using canesten cream but it wasnt working and i ended up with thrush inside and it made me bleed which i panicked about because obviously i thought it was something to do with the baby, i went to the hospital and they examined me and advised it was just thrush so was prescribed a pessary and another type cream which has worked wonders. When it comes back and i use that cream it goes straight away. Point of my post is i was told canesten is fine but if it doesnt clear up see your MW or doctor so it doesnt go as far as mine did. Hope it clears up soon. Xx
