Hi everyone,
Maybe TMI so apologies in advance.
Im about 4/5 weeks pregnant i had a MMC at the beginning of November.
Last sunday i started bleeding it was bright red but quickly turned brown i had my hcg checked monday they was 1900 then again wednesday they was 3600 I been itchy down there and noticed some white stuff so spoke to triage who said it could be thrush and prescribed canesten cream now after putting the cream on i had another red bleed just wondering if thrush can cause bleeding as the dr i spoke to said it cant and that the cream cant cause it either he did say my levels are rising as expected in a healthy pregnancy :/ just so confused & want the bleeding to stop xx

Hi ther sorry to hear you are worried. It sounds v unlikely that a bright red bleed could be connected to thrush or the cream. I think you should call your doc/ midwife or if they have a maternity helpline at the hospital, hopefully these would be listed in your notes. I am 37 weeks now and had thrush right the way through but no problems like you describe, which could only really be connected if you were scratching a LOT, enough to make it bleed.

They will take you seriously because of your medical history so don't be worried about calling them. Good luck.

There not taking me serious tho they keep saying keep an eye on it as my numbers are rising and they cant scan me as nothing will be seen, the bleed is back brown again now xx

Hi I have hurrendous thrush right now as just finished antibiotics so just used cream and pessary . Ive had no bleeding at all and I have a cervical ectropian .
Maybe a coincidence , I would want to be checked keep pestering them . x

Go to your maternity assessment unit! I had really bad thrush and I tiny brownish bit of spotting! Basically it turned out after an internal examination I had a little graze just inside my vagina and the thrush obviously made everything sore and worse! They did a few swabs everything was fine and is fine with the baby! So they prescribed a weeks worth of thrush pessarys and I'm fine! So just go get your self checked out! I'm sure you'll be fine!
