thrush while in 2ww, what can I take?

I've woken up to a bout of thrush, which I've had before. I'm trying to get pregnant and about 5 days from testing.

So what I can I take? All the Canesten stuff says not take if pregnant or to check with your GP. Anyone know what the GP would say about any of the treatments.

It seems silly to suffer until I can see my GP, when the chances are I'm not even pregnant.

you can use pessaries/cream while pregnant but I dont think the tablet is advised

I've been to Boots and the packaging all says not use ANY of the products before speaking to your GP.

I've come home with nothing!

I was prescribed the internal cream/pessary thing when pregnant. Symptoms may be relieved by applying natural yoghurt to the area or using vinegar in the bath
