Had one on Monday, am better but still sore/itchy. Should I try and get another over the weekend or wait for MW on Monday?

Not sure generally but my swab results showed a large amount of yeast infection and it's high up so I don't have my usual thrush symptoms but causes other problems. Was told to do 1 pessary that night and another 5 days later.

I had one swab show thrush 10 days ago then they gave me ABs for uti which made it worse.

Yes, ABs can cause thrush so not good. If you have another pessary, maybe do that tomorrow night? Could do sooner, just know for sure that 5 days must be ok. Hope it clears up soon!

antibiotics will make it worse i can't remember the reason why. um they say 6 months between pesseries on the boxes but iv suffered a lot from thrush before and during this pregnancy and the doc always prescribes a pessery. just go to doc n they should help you smile xx

Can't get to a dr now as its weekend and can't get to ooh ( its 30 min each way/I'm unable to walk more than a few feet with crutches, 3 kids at home, dh at work). Could send dh to buy one tomorrow am if it's ok to use.
