Without thinking I used it as I got thrush. Have now read the packet afterwards and it says to consult dr before using. Should I pump and dump or should it be okay? Gonna give dr a ring in the morning

Hi it will be fine. Have a look at the Vaginal thrush and breastfeeding link here:
www.breastfeedingnetwork.org.uk/drugs-factsheets/
Be really careful with hygiene, towels etc as it's easy to transfer it to your breasts. Check out the other thrush links on there for symptoms and treatment.
