Thrush after birth

Someone must have taken a swab at some point during/after my labour as I've been informed that I have thrush. GP has prescribed a pessary however the notes say not to use during a period - I am still bleeding and whilst this is not a period technically,it's v similar.

Has anyone been in the same situation and been told they can't use a pessary until the lochia stops???

Bumping for you....
Are you BF? If not, could you take the oral tablet (can't remember what it is called)?
