    Hiya Ashley

    Have you tried Canesten (Clotrimazole)? Thats good and my pharmacist said it was safe to use during pregnancy, but just told me not to use the applicator.

    Stay away from the tablet treatment Fluconazole (Diflucan) as you aren't supposed to use that.

    Hope this helps

    I've now had this TWICE! so far since being PG and both times have been given a pessery to put 'up there' and also some cream. Canestan is the only one you can use though babe.
    Good luck getting it clear :)

    hey

    im also suffering with thrush at the minute, i got canestan complete, a cream for inside and a cream for the outside, also a natural way to relieve the irritating feeling is put some witch hazel on some cotton wool and hold it down there.

    hope this helps

    Another vote for Canestan. I've got thrush and the doctor prescribed six days of pessaries (which are vile when they work their way out :oops: ) and cream for the outside.

    By the way - DO NOT use canestan tablets - they are absorbed into your body and therefore not reccomended. Just cream and pessary's.

    Rosieroo- I totally agree with you on that one - it isn't pleasent - at all :oops:

    Thank you ladies, you have been great! I have had mixed opinions about the pessaries but I will need to try it cause it's really getting me down.
