thrush

i have thrush so i called my doctor surgery this morning and they said they would get the doctor to write me a prescription and i know it is a stupid question but is it safe to use during pregnancy?

Also i am still waiting for my prescription card to come through do you think i should have had this by now?

Hi Olo

Sorry about the thrush

No idea about the prescription - the GP should look at your notes before writing it though. You could always give them a call back and check.

I got my prescription card only about a week after booking in. You might want to chase it up.

Pessary and cream are absolutely fine. You just can't take the tablet.

Olo

I have just got over a really bad case of thrush and using the pessaries and cream are perfectly fine. My GP gave me the 6 pessaries instead of the 1 but did say not to use the adapter and to insert them yourself just so you don't go to far up. Your card should be here by now but if you tell your doctor to mark on your prescription they should not charge you. Chase them up.

Hi Olo

I had thrush more or less constantly when I was pregnant and I used both pessaries and the cream.

Hope you sort your little problem out

You need to avoid sugar, fermented food, mushrooms.....thrush is an overgrowth of candida (bad bacteria) so taking a pro-biotic would really help immediately and in the long run also. If you are getting it constantly you need to build up your good bacteria.

Thrush- Chemist wouldn't sell me any cream!

Hi all
Right, time to tell you all about my itchy bits rotf
I noticed today that i have thrush and although it's mild i want to put a stop to it now rather than allowing it to get worse. I went to the chemist and asked what i could use and she said that i could use cream but she wouldn't sell it to me as i am pregnant and told me to see my GP. For goodness sake - am i really expected to wait days to see a GP just to be told what i already know? Meanwhile it would only get worse!

So i went to another chemist and asked for some cream but this time i didn't say that i am pregnant. I got some canestan cream that says it's safe to use in pregnancy if you have consulted your doctor or midwife. I have applied a little this evening but can anyone tell me if this ok or must i really see my GP? If i start using the cream now, it will probably be gone by the time i could get an appointment.

Also, it says that you should also use a medication to treat the internal infection at the same time but everywhere i have looked it seems to say that only cream can be used in pregnancy - anyone know more about this?

Oh and.....i am not putting any live yoghurt up there (before you say it) :snigger:

The cream's fine to use, the pessary isn't recommended during pregnancy. The chemist was just protecting herself but it doesn't help you when you have sore itchy bits and bobs eh?

... i had thrush at 37wks and the midwife in delivery unit gave me pessary - it worked though (unless memory has clouded everything). I also used live/natural yoghurt and as yucky as that may sound, god was it a relief!! :snigger:

Ah but your midwife can also give you drugs like co-codamol, tamazipam and pethadine while you're pregnant too... doesn't mean that you would take it at home unsupervised :winking:

I definately wouldn't risk the pessary at only 10 weeks. If the cream will do the trick, that's good enough for me!

Oh and i forgot to mention about my cyclogest pesseries. Do you think it's ok to use them whilst i'm using the cream?

Thanks Lorraine, will check it out.
Daisy - you were given the pessary at 6 weeks pregnant? I guess if the doctor prescribed it, it must be ok but for treating myself without seeing a doc, i best stick to the cream.
It does seem pretty mild anyway, so like Kar says, i've caught it nice and early.

Thanks for all your help this evening ladies, it's much appreciated. Night night blowkiss

Its also worth knowing that most GP surgerys put time aside for phone appointments, so you can call up and ask to speak to a GP and discuss your problem over the phone, when its something you may just need advice on.

Update on this - cream certainly seems to have done the trick and i've been off it for a couple of days now.
Anyone know what i can do to keep it away? A friend of mine told me that if you eat lots of probiotic yoghurt it is supposed to help prevent thrush - i've only ever heard of putting it up there :O so i'm not sure about this but i have been eating it anyway! Has anyone else heard this or any other good tricks to prevent it?

I wish I knew hun - I had mine as a result of 3 UTI's sort of following each other at 33, 36 and 37wks. But yoghurt is good for you anyway so it cant do any harm Michelle. I bet its a relief down there now!

:snigger: such a relief!
I am sticking with my litre of water everyday since i got told off when i had a UTI at 6 weeks, so that should help i guess! Will keep eating yoghurt too, they are yummy anyway.

I have to take a pee sample with me on monday to my booking appt so i guess i will see if it's all ok down there.

I'm paranoid after hearing my neighbours horror story about losing her baby at 24 weeks after having thrush that was untreated for months :scared:

Hi Michelle

Buy probiotics in a capsule form, take them this way with a cold drink or food (not hot). Far more concentrated than the yogurts, drinks etc and there is some conflict whether they work in this form as they contain sugar and sugar feeds bad bacteria (candida).

Also avoid fermented foods, sugar, alcohol (sure you doing this already) and fungi (ie mushrooms).

This should keep it at bay.

I saw my nutrionist yesterday and mentioned similar things as I have had a UTI and thrush now (which I am sure was brought on by the antibiotics).

She said, like Blondie, to avoid the yoghurts, drinks and the suchlike because they are so full of sugar - or sweetners if you get the low fat versions - and because of the confict with the sugar feeding bacteria.

Instead she recommended a course of tablets (Biocare Bio-Acidophilus Forte) : one course now and 2 courses at around 7 1/2 months. The later course is supposed to help with the baby's immunity as well because apparently when it comes down the vaginal canal it picks up loads of bacteria thats hanging around (sorry that sounds gross).

Hope that helps.

Also hun I expect you know this but Cranberry Juice (either on own or with Raspberry is how I like it) is good for killing bacteria and is good for you also. That and lots of water was what my m/w recommended. Now you've had thrust, your m/w will keep an eye on it I am sure. I know how easy it is to focus on sad news that your neighbour had hun but try to put it out of your mind as best you can. I was exactly the same as had friends with very sad news prior and during pregnancy and I just tried to push it to the far reaches and just concentrate on keeping well and resting. Sending:hugs:.

thrush treatment

Hi I am 5 weeks into pregnancy from IVF and have thrush. I am still using pessaries of progesterone (cyclogest)
I used some cream as last time I had thrush doctor said was ok to use.
It doesn't seem to be doing any good and I have bought a new treatment but when I have checked online there is conflicting evidence about whether to use it.
Maybe I should go to the doctors? Any suggestions? Help

I have had trouble with thrush as well. I was using cream but I saw my GP last week and she prescribed a pessary cream. My consultant recommended syringing live yoghurt inside also which gives great relief although messy. I would seek advise from Gp as you don't want to interfere with progesterone pessaries. Good luck I sympathise with you x

Hey hon! Have you tried the cyclogest up your back passage?? I'd suggest doing this while you have the thrush and chat to your Dr about further treatment. Good luck. xxxxxx

I have the same problem at the moment, also been using the cream and it isn't doing any good. I spoke to a GP this morning and he has prescribed me the pessary but you are probably best talking to your own GP.

As Rach says I found it helps to switch to putting the progesterone pessaries up the back passage as I think this aggravated the thrush in early pregnancy.

Thanks ladies for you ideas and experience makes you feel better that u not the only one!

Have been to docs and got a cream. He had to check with another doctor and went for a low dose. It feels so much better when cream is on and I need to keep using it. :P If gets no better then go back.
I asked about using back passage and doc said to stay with front as absorbs better! I suppose all clinics are different. At least I have some relief and hope that the thrush will completely go!!!!

treating thrush

Hi all

I have thrush and have been prescribed canesten by my doc. The only thing is is that he has given me 6 pessaries to usee over 6 nights. Is this not excessive? I've tried to look it up but no joy. He said it was becos thrush is harder to get rid of in pregnant women.

Perhaps I'm being paranoid, but just want to be sure. I don't want anything to jeoperdise this pregnancy. I'm also on 3 pessaries a day of pregesterone!!!!

Any advice?

Hi Rosa, could you check about this with your clinic? They should know about the combination of the thrush pessaries and those supporting the pregnancy. You could also ask your midwife re. taking that many pessaries for thrush. Good luck. Cathy xxx

I would also speak to a pharmacist. Whenever I have a query about anything I've been prescribed I speak to a pharmacist. They know their drugs better than anyone.

Hi Rosa

I was unfortunate enough to get a severe thrush infection at the tail end of taking my crinone pessaries and the two just merged in to a big disgusting lump and dropped out the next day. I would speak to the Pharmacist as they probably won't work side by side. I was ill with it, my glands were up in my groin and I had severe lower back pain and shooting pains in my pubic area and flu like symptoms. I had to go back to the docs and took another cream pessary a week later which has done the trick, but she's prescribed me a spare in case it comes back. I would say the cream is better than the pessary as its gentler and coats the inside better but be careful and gentle on insertion.

Other things you can do to help is take a good strong daily probiotic. I take a capsule called Preebio, its on the dear side at about £7.99 for 28 tablets from boots but its brilliant and really helps. But even the daily drinks you can get at the supermarket are helpful like Actimel! Also wear cotton pants, no g-strings or tight jeans, use unperfumed soaps, no bubble bath or hot baths!! Boil all your knickers if you have to as the spores can live in materials even when washed! No knickers at bedtime and cut down on sugary food and drinks!

I really hope you can get some relief soon as it really is a pain and can make you feel so run down!!!! xxxx

Help! Thrush in early pregnancy... what can I take?

I'm almost 11 weeks pregnant (yay!) and I seem to have developed thrush this week. It's got pretty uncomfortable today so I'm wondering what remedies I can use?
I'm going to try and get an appointment at the docs for tomorrow I think, but wondered if I can use canesten tonight to help?

Hiya,

I don't know what you can't use but I would definately go to the docs and let them prescribe something, after all you get it free!!

Also its best to get it double checked that it is thrush.
