You can use canesten while pregnant just check with pharmacist as they told me I could only use external cream.

I'm not sure you can use the pessary but you can definitely use the cream. Thrush is miserable, I had it after I gave birth, adding insult to injury!!! Hope you feel better soon thanks

You can use the pessary while pregnant, I suffered thrush terribly throughout my pregnancy. You have my sympathies....

You can use the pessary as long as you don't use the applicator, just use your finger to insert it.

I have had thrush almost constantly this pregnancy. The cream would clear it up for about a week and then it would come back. It's been miserable! Used the pessary and it's been gone a month so far, so go for that.

You have my sympathy, it's 'orrible!
