I had it last month and if you want a natural remedy - I used 1 part pure tea tree oil to 20 parts water (I used teaspoons to measure) I quickly dipped a tampon and popped it in overnight - I can't remember if I done it 2 or 3 nights but it worked completely and I had it quite badly. I worried that it would make me a little dry or effect the quality of ewcm but it didn't appear to. Big thumbs up from me
The cream usually helps enough and it clears up by itself, I'll have to get some tomorrow because it is sore! I'm due AF tomorrow anyway so not bothered about dtd right now. I'm not sure if the pessary affects TTC, does it say in the leaflet or google it? You might be ok by tomorrow anyway with just the cream xx
I had some canesten cream in the bathroom so been using that since yesterday...
I also have a pack of pessarys which the doctor prescribed me when I had thrush a while ago but never used them because it had already pretty much cleared up.
I'd like to use a pessary but I'm scared to use them... Don't know if its safe to use them whilst TTC? The next 7 day is my most fertile time so don't want to use something that could have a bad effect on TTC!
Anyway... It already feels better from using the cream so might just leave it for now ...
Ahh I know how you feel Gillian, I'm sure I've got it coming now I'm soooo sore and itchy! It's the worst feeling ever! Ill have to try and get to a chemist tomorrow! You're probably feeling better from it now! Xx
AF has been and gone (ended yesterday) so I'm gearing myself up for ovulation only to find I have thrush!!!!
Not majorly bad but its there... If only mild... Can thrush affect my chances of conceiving? Anyone else had this? Gonna get canesten duo tomorrow... I've had thrush before and the tablet always deals with it straight away. Have another week til I'm ovulating so hoping i can shift the thrush by then!
