Hi, I went to drs with suspected thrush just before Xmas, she swabbed me to make sure and prescribed a pessary which I used on Xmas Eve. Symptoms subsided for about 6 days or so but now it seems to have come back with a vengance, just wondered if anyone else had had this and if you have any advice to get rid of it for good. I am going to make another drs appointment Tuesday - thank you!

Could you be low on iron - just been reading about the link between that and resistant thrush

Thanks for that info, had my bloods done at 12 weeks and all fine but I guess that could be different now. Have been feeling exceptionally tired lately, falling asleep at the drop of a hat during the day but just put it down to pregnancy and looking after dd, who is three. I will bring it up with doctor.
