Ductal thrush in last pregnancy, I can feel twinges again at 4wks pregnant?

I had awful shooting burning pains during and after bfeeding last time (2 years ago) and that along with sore cracked bleeding nipples (tmi!) put pay to my bfeeding attempts. I'd been given antibiotics straight after delivery due to a third degree tear so I think that's what caused it. I was given several doses of fluconazole but nothing shifted it and I eventually gave up.

I've just found out I'm pregnant again, only 4 weeks I can definitely feel the same sort of sharp pains deep inside my breast. Not all the time, it comes and goes. It's almost like the thrush had been sitting lurking and it's going to come back again!

I might be wrong that it's thrush but it's definitely more than tender achy boobs.

Has anyone had any experience of that? Any ways to shift thrush for good?!

Many thanks xx

No experience sorry. Have you called one of the Bfing Helplines?
