    I am suffering from thrush quite badly in this pregnancy, this is prob about the 4th time i have had it now, each time i get it, its a little worse.

    What do you think i should do, just keep on treating it or mention it to my midwife?
    It seems so minor so im not sure if i should say anything.

    Thanks

    i used to get it so bad with Dior i had it none stop i would by the pesery, it would go for 1 day then come back. i nnever mentioned it to my MW. but when my waters broke at 34 weeks with Dior they gave me a internal and the Dr couldnt believe how bad my thrush was:blush:
    he said if it is really bad it can bring on labour early as its a infection.
    he just gave me a pesery tablet to insert.not very nice seems my waters were breaking too!

    i would mention it to your MW though dont suffer with it its awfull!!!

    ps what soap do you use? when i use imperial lether it gets really really bad and tight knicers and trousers

    they say if you have thrish more than 3 times in ayear dont treat it yourself, goto the doctor, I would definatly speak to your MW becuase its really painful and irritating and you shouldnt have to suffer so much with it!

    i have been treating it with peserys, they work, but then a few weeks later it will come back.

    I use sanex shower creme, i have always used sanex so i dont think it could be that.

    i will treat it again this time but i will mention it at my 21 week check, it will prob be back by then anyway!

    thanks girls

    I had thrush really bad with Amy, my lady's area looked like a bunch of grapes!!
    I was so embarrassed about mentioning it but it got to the point where i couldn't put underwear on, she had to get the GP in to look at it as it was so bad, swollen, purple and lumpy :blush:

    sorry that was very discriptive!! :dohh:

    I suffered with that a few times when I was pregant with Olivia. The MW told me to eat a banana and have some live natural yoghurt every day (to eat it not put it anywhere!) and also cut down on unrefined sugars such as white bread and biscuits etc.

    Hope you're sorted soon
