Yes to cream and pessary. I had thrush a few times while pregnant. A pharmacist won't sell it to you but I got some from sainsburys as it was on the shelf and just went through a normal till no questions asked.
You can buy the pessaries on Amazon by the way. Don't use the applicator when pregnant, just use a finger. I have thrush that never leaves and I sympathise, it's horrid.
I started a thread similar to this a week or so ago and someone recommended Optibac probiotic tablets. They guarantee for the good bacteria to reach the vagina or something. I've only been using them a few days so I can't say if they work yet but could be worth a try. The pessaries sort of keep it under control for me but it never goes. My consultant suggested using a pessary every two weeks for the rest of my pregnancy so I might try that.
Something to bear in mind if you buy thrush treatment on Amazon that every time you open Amazon it suggests you buy more. Potentially embarrassing! I logged into my account at work then quickly closed the page again!
I have been getting this with antibiotics through my pregnancy. Dr gave me caneston duo and cleared it up well but before I got that it was driving me nuts! I slept with a wet face cloth between my legs and just shook it out and refolded to keep it cold. Much better than itching all night!
I always have a pessary/cream combo in the cupboard just in case! I've had Thrush more times than I care to remember so am used to the signs and use it as early as possible, anything to stop that awful itching.
Thrush - just one more delightful aspect to pregnancy
