Me too - several times during pregnancy!

why are you embarrassed - its a yeast infection not an STD

I've got it at the moment and I'm not even preggers

natural yogurt helps too

JM - God I've had thrush soooooooooo many times. My Mum was very prone to it too!! Don't worry about it and certainly don't be embarassed.... just try not to scratch!!! I remember walking through the shos and walking like a lunatic trying to stop it itching.... and also doing this weird shiffle thing when sitting down at work.... trying to be discrete. It drove me MENTAL... luckily once you get it treated it clears up very quickly.

I've also had it in my throat when I was 20! Now THAT'S embarrassing.

The tablet Diflucan is very good, but it might not be recommended in pregnancy as its quite new-ish to the market.

I had never had it before i was pg. Some people suffer with it alot and its very very common. I first got it when i was about 14 weeks pgs and it was very sore and itchy (sorry TMI). Use the cream it will really help and it will clear up

TYPOS! Replace Shos with Shops, and shiffle with shuffle Oops.

it's totally safe. i not only had thrush, i also had bacterial vaginosis. the immune system can become a bit compromised during pregnancy and the Ph level of the vagina can be altered, making a woman more predisposed to things like thrush infections.
