I am 20 weeks and have a case of thrush, which I have heard is quite normal in pregnancy. Dh has been to the chemist for me and spoke firstly to the pharmacist who gave him the canesten pessary and cream, and said to use the pessary, just insert with your finger instead of the applicator. When he took it to pay for it, the lady there told him to just use the cream and not use the pessary at all. Which advice is correct? Has anyone else been in this situation and what were you advised?
