    Default Lots of TMI. Thrush.

    There is a lot of TMI in this thread.


    I have been getting recurring thrush during this pregnancy. I use a pessary (on drs advice). It goes away for about a week, then comes straight back.

    Now, my main question is, how do i make it stop!! Also, i seem to get it after DTD. Why!!?? I need to be DD lots in the coming weeks to help bub come along. But i cant be DTD, then waiting for a week for the thrush to clear. Any ideas?

    Is your DH treating himself too? Otherwise you'll just keep passing it back to one another.

    I don't know about the DTD part but could your thrush be linked to your blood sugar levels?
    I had issues for years with thrush and the moment I started on metformin for high BGL's, the thrush dissapeared.

    I had the same prob with my second pregnancy. ask your dr for antibiotics, sometimes when they 'keep reoccurring they can give you antibiotics.

    Yes tmi but its the increase in vaginal secretions causing this whilst dtd. Its got something to do with sugar yeast thing. All my textbooks are at work but im going in tomorrow I can tell you exactly what it is. Try using a lube a ky to kind of act like a barrier of sorts and put it all over your vagina not just in hubby. Not medical advice, just something I know has worked for a client with the same problem. Also shower without soap straight after but clean down there really well with water to get rid of sny residue without destroying any ph.

    Op, I found the pessary didn't work for me.

    I used the cream but just didn't insert it too far in whilst pg.

    Cleared it up straight away

    Hugs xx I had this happen in both my pregnancies. I found the cream and applicator treatment worked best. My ob said it was fine to use the applicator as long as I didn't insert all the way in. I had to do the 7 day treatment. Also found it stayed away longer if hubby did a treatment too.

    It's so horrible.
