    canesten cream is safe hon.........i have used it and also been prescribed it by the doc and midwife...and the pesseries...

    she even said, just dont tell the pharmacist you are pregnant cos they wont give you it...but she said its safe

    it also worked a treat....try and get some cream right up there if thats all you have...xx

    the cream ii had in isnt cansten, it was one doc gave me when i had a bad attack just before my weddding n said that maybe OH was re infecting me so the cream was in case it came back i could get him to use it but never needed it ( and got pg that same week lol )

    will pop to chemist and get some tmrw, didnt think we be able to use the pessary guess just dont put it up too far? eh silly question but can ya put the cream up in there too? thought it was just for outside area?

    Yeah it was the pessary and cream combi she said no to, I told her i knew lots of people who were told by doc/mw it was safe but she still wouldnt give it to me, guess she was just covering her own ass

    im sure its fine cos think its the same ingredients as the cream only in a different format to break down up ur foof and do the job so will get OH to grab one for his NON pregnancy wife later hehe

    yeah basically to cover their own ass all meds say do not take unless told by doc when preg unless theyre proven 100% safe like rennie tabs lol. costs too much for most to be arsed to test it that much i think.
