Yes unfortunatly I am in the same position! I notice mine about 2 weeks ago although I am nearing the end of my pregnancy. I went to the GP who said i can't take anything. I have just had to treat the dc and the rest of the family and now wait it out for mine to die whilst continuing with hygeine measues. I plan to breast feed so I don't think I can even take anything after the birth. It is such a horrible situation to be in isn't it!

Thanks that’s helpful smile The drugs really don’t sound ideal... It’s such a nuisance

You treat those that can take the medication and use hygiene methods to get rid of yours

I’ve not been to the GP yet as I’ve only just clocked it (and seen them 😱). I’m 6-7 weeks pregnant and have two small children who probably brought them back home. Has anyone had any experience with this, everything I can find says that you can’t take the drugs in pregnancy. I can’t do another 34 weeks like this 😭
