Is this thrush? Pharmacist was soooo busy I couldn't ask & although I've had it before....

This time the discharge is pale pink. Still small lumps of yuck, just pink as well as white. I'm confused!

Slight swelling, not itching but a tingling just as though it's reminding me that it's there.

I did buy a pessary, cream & tablet but now don't know whether to take administer them or not.

Advice welcome. Thankyou.

It could be, you could use the treatment and if it's no better by Monday then see someone for a swab just to be sure.

Not all women get a thick white dicharge with thrush, some get a pink discharge and some get none.

Pale pink suggests blood. Are you mid cycle or anything?

I think I'd take the tablet but not use the others in case it's something else and it irritates your skin.

If the tablet doesn't work in a week see your GP.

I've not had it pale pink before which is why I'm concerned. I didn't find a website that says it may be this colour either.

But then the texture is as I experienced it before....hence my confusion.

Oh dear! Thankyou to you both. I will have a think.

Thrush does not = pink discharge. could it be early period? cervical erosion? lost of reasons for slight blood loss. Ovulation?
