    from the website:

    Can I use Canesten® while menstruating or pregnant?
    Although Canesten is safe to treat vulvovaginal yeast infections during menstruation, the treatment should ideally not be performed during a period and should be completed before the start of a period.
    Hormonal changes during pregnancy increase the risk of vulvovaginal fungal infections which should be treated immediately. Although this is aclassical condition for self-medication, it is highly recommended that pregnant women consult a physician before starting treatment.
    During pregnancy it is better to use vaginal tablets because they can easily be inserted without an applicator.
    This removes any possibility, however small, of injury to the foetus. Canesten itself is not known to cause any damage and can be used safely during pregnancy.

    so - probably okay, but best to double check :D never fun!

    I had this with my last baby. It drove me mental.........Did clear up in the third tri.

    I called my delivery unit and asked if there was anything they could do. They gave me a pessery that was safe to use. This helped but didn't go 100%.

    Other things I tried were the pro-biotic drinks. Don't think they did anything though.

    Hope you find something that helps soon.

    I've had it like you describe since I was about 17 weeks. It starts to clear up and then back it comes again even worse than it was before! I do use Canasten cream almost daily now just to relieve it a bit.

    I had it for a week, then got the cream, it went away, slightly came back.
    If it comes and goes regular then best off seeing doctor.

    Yup, I have it constantly too. I'll use the pessaries (prescribed by doctor), and then about 2 weeks later, it's back.

    So. Annoying.
