    Default Can I get a pap smear with thrush?

    I am well over due for my pap smear. The nurse at my dr surgery does it but I have had a bad bout of thrush for ages and am working on fixing that but am worried too fall too far behind on my pap test

    Go to the pharmacy and ask for Cannestan. It'll knock the thrush in the head in a few days. You can choose from a pill or cream or combo. You don't need a prescription. Once it's gone you can get on with you Pap test

    You can get a Pap smear done with thrush, it should not affect the results. However, it seems you should definitely go to the GP if the symptoms aren't resolving as you might have a more resistant thrush organism or perhaps a bacterial infection.

    There is this other type of thrush that requires tablets to get rid of it. Something like Boric acid. I don't know how it's different but apparently the usually stuff won't kick it.

    If the over the counter things aren't working go to the dr about it. I had a really terrible case of it once and I tried so many OTC things, and they actually ended up making it so much worse. I must have had some nasty type of it I think. I had to go on a course of strong prescription meds to get rid of it but I shouldn't have waited so long - I was in agony by the time I went to the dr about it.

    You most certainly can. It would actually be a good idea to get it done if over the counter treatments aren't working.
