I probably should see a dr about this but am a bit embarrassed so thought I would seek some advice here first...
Over Xmas I had what I assumed was thrush as I was itchy down below, additional discharge and a bit of soreness. So I called my midwife in early Jan, she got the practice nurse to do me a prescription for a thrush pessary which I used and things seemed to get better.
then a couple of weeks later the symptoms returned so a couple of weeks ago I got another thrush pessary from the chemist and again things seemed to get better.
But now the symptoms seem to be back again. I am itching around there quite a lot on and off, getting through 2-3 pantliners a day, and experiencing quite a bit of pain during and after BD.
I know thrush can be common and difficult to get rid of during pregnancy but do you think I need to see a dr to rule out some kind of infection??? Has anyone had anything similar???
