    hey hun i used natural yoghurt(yucky but effective) and it went within a day or two, i was just itchy and a little sensitive though it wasnt a bad attack of thrush so if its pretty sore ask your pharmacist they're really helpful xxxxx

    I had it a couple of times in my last pregnancy and both my doctor and MW said the tablet form is much better (but also prescribed cream to use too to help while the tablet was working!).

    I had it in my last pregnancy and got the canesten duo (pessary and cream) - was fantastic.

    You need the pessary or the proper cream.
