    I started with thrush on Tuesday, I had some 1% cream in so have been using that but it's got worse so rang the gp today and he prescribed me 2% cream.
    I only ever get thrush when I'm pregnant and have always had the pessary before but the gp said I couldn't have it.
    Do I have to be s certain amount of weeks before they'll prescribe it?
    I'm tempted to go to tesco and pay £13 for it but don't want to if its gonna harm bubs x

    I've never had during pregnancy but if the doctor has advised not to use the pessary then don't buy it. X

    Have you considered using coconut oil instead? Sounds odd I know, but it's a very good antifungal and does work.

    You could mention it to midwife? I had thrush a few weeks ago and gp gave me pessary but just told me to insert with finger and not too high because I had a low lying placenta (since moved). I had it twice with my daughter too. Like twinkle said though I wouldn't advise it if they said no unless you can ask another medical professional who knows your medical history Xxx

    I had it terrible from 30 weeks onwards, dr prescribed me 10 boxes of pessaries just so I didn't gave to keep going back. So yes you can use them,I also had to use them last time I was pregnant too. Be worth going to see a deferent dr, you shouldn't have to pay xx

    I've been using the pessarises as I suffer terribly with thrush during pregnancy and I used them on numerous occasions during previous pregnancies too.

    Just be careful on application not to insert too far xx
