But now have thrush. Do you know if I can take anything for it?

I'm sure you could take the oral thrush pill (diflucan?) I'm not sure if the lochia might affect a pessary's effectiveness, or even make it come out. hth

Butterfly I will be marching back and asking for a second opinion! Thankfully natural yog has done the trick but a messy trick it was.

Ar hang on maybe it's cos I am breastfeeding so couldn't have the oral tablet - although she still said I couldn't have the cream. No idea, think they make it up most of the time.

ended up with the cream as pharmacist also advised against pessary (after divi first pharmacist suggested it).. also took acidophillus whihc helped clear it up quicker
