    Thrush is a fungal infection whereas discharge is totally normal and acts like a protector against bad bacteria with thrush u get really itchy down below too its horrible I had it a few weeks ago pretty bad and had to get a course of the canesten pessary and cream which eventually cleared it up but I felt like I had ants in my pants! An increase in discharge in pregnancy is completely normal as long as its not a funny colour, smell etc x

    Well I'm not itchy down there, so it must just be discharge. Just wanted to check before I brought it up with my doctor. Thanks girls :) xx
