I don't know for SURE that I have them yet, but very puzzled at my itchy bottom. And just read up on it. I do have piles but one dose of cream or Sudo cream usually works.

It's very possible as I teach very sensory seeking autistic children, several who are in nappies. And that's the class with alllll the biscuits!

But - I'm ttc. It's day one so I could get the medication tomorrow. However dose 2 after two weeks potentially might be when I'm very early stages pregnant - all sources say different medication when pregnant. Probably not implanting by then but I can ovulate as early as day 10/11. Any ideas what to do? (I know I may not get pregnant of course but is it best not to risk it?

Most if not all treatments are contraindicated for pregnancy. If you are sure you have them then strict hygiene measures can eradicate the problem rather than the medication to prevent reinfection . Probably best to pop along to the pharmacy and have a chat though. They will be able to advise.

Very tmi. I had a look in my poo and can't see anything but bottom is still v itchy.

I'm only on cd5 so won't even ovulate for another 5 days at least. Or does the medicine hang around?

I'm thinking of going to the pharmacist.

Or buying metanium.

So effing annoying!

Well that was a fun conversation.

He suggested not worms as I've not see any and to hang fire a few days, thinking it's likely to be piles.

I bought the stuff incase so I can treat as soon as I see any.

He did say gps might prescribe at their discretion. And a one off treatment would probably be ok. I could treat everyone be else a second time if I were pregnant.
