    HI! Is that the same as a yeast infection? If so, then my understanding is that you can use the creams for discomfort, but don't orally take any pills for it & then of course I'd call the doctor's office on Monday.

    Your not to use any over the counter thrush creams however you can use sudocream or a similar nappy rash cream until you can get to the doctors.

    I used Canesten a few times since getting pregnant. My OB said it was fine. Also eating yogurt with probiotic helps.

    It is perfectly safe to use creams and pessaries. You can't take oral tablets. I have had it several times this pregnancy already and did with my son too and have always been prescribed Cannesten pessaries and cream :)
    It is such an inconvenience isn't it. Not to mention uncomfortable.
