Sore lady parts - what is this? TMI!

Hi all. I am 14 weeks now, and have had sore lady parts for the last three or so. Have been repeatedly to the GP and they have said that it is a UTI, then thrush. Antibiotics for the UTI (a week's worth) didn't seem to do much, maybe a bit, and thrush cream seems to have done a bit but not much either.

I'm worried that I can't work out what it is. I have generally sore parts, but most sore where I wee (although this comes and goes and it doesn't burn, so not like a normal UTI) and on the labia around my vagina. If I push about down there it feels like it's actually the muscles underneath that are achey, iyswim, rather than the skin itself.

I did get PGP in previous pregnancies but it always started in my sacroiliac joints in my back and then spread to my front, but this it up in between my legs. The last few days I've had a lot of pains around my groin as well, if I put one foot down too heavily going down stairs etc., and my sitting bones also hurt. Any advice? I've got a referral to a physio for this already.

Could still be thrush. Sometimes you need to treat the infection internally with a pessary rather than with the cream. I had thrush about 5 times when I was pregnant and used the pessary everytime with good success. smile

OK. Am going to GP again this afternoon. Will get the pessary from the chemist then. I can cope with all this stuff, it's just that I wish I knew what it was so that I can manage it properly - if it's PGP I would rest more etc. And UTIs stress me because of the chance of kidney infection and the antibiotics. But these are all low to no risk things for the baby, aren't they? That's the thing that upsets me about having them, I don't want to be risking any problems for the baby.
