I am 33 weeks pregnant and have had recurring thrush since I was about 13 weeks. It's not something I usually suffer from but I was told I had a UTI at 12 weeks (no symptoms) and given antibiotics. The antibiotics made me really sick (I wasn't ever actually sick with morning sickness) and as a result of taking them I also got thrush which I have not been able to get rid of. At the moment I am using canesten cream but it seems like that just treats the symptoms, not the actual infection, and as I'm pregnant I can't take the oral pill or use the peasary. Does anyone have any wonder cures? (Please!)
Definitely go and see your GP, you should only use certain treatments for trush whilst pregnant. Your GP will prescribe you a suitable treatment. I had it first time when pregnant and got a pessary, it clear it up whit a day.
Yes, you can use the pessary, although it wasn't a wonder cure for me. I virtually had a weekly repeat prescription for it. It was a very hot summer when I was pregnant though which didn't help. Mine started in the same way - antibiotics for a UTI which upset the usual yeast balance. It was instantly cured by giving birth!
If you can try to cut down on sugar in your diet, that might help.
