    Maybe your midwife will know what you can use, if not a pharmacist should know. Sorry that I cant be much help.

    I used the pessaries, they're fine. You can also use the cream, but cannot use the canestan once tablets.
    Good luck :)

    I got thrush after a course of antibiotics...the doctor told me at the time that though I could use creams, I couldn't use pessaries or oral tablets and the creams weren't much good on their own. What she DID recommend was a bath with Epsom Salts in it (very relaxing indeed anyway) and plenty of probiotic yoghurt. Cleared me right up... epsom salts is great for drawing poisons out of cuts and bruises too...and apparently you can also drink it as a cleansing agent but I wouldn't do that while preggie!
