I recently had a bout of thrush, used pessaries and then cream, pessary worked,I think but I Found the pain and itching etc unbearable so, now I am allergic to the creams, It was diagnosed as thrush but my symptoms were burning down below seemed to be at entrance, along with aa pain in my lower abdomen, especially when urinating. I also had a few blood spots although i've put that down to my period about to start soon. I got desperate and so used natural yoghurt and also vinegar, I did bathe a lot in hot water when it got too much 2/3 times daily sometimes, then doctor told me that can add too the symptoms. that was 3 days ago now I am a lot better but still a bit itchy and still burns a little upon urination slightly, I still have to put yoghurt in/on though.

Can you advise if there may be another condition I may have as well as the thrush?

cheers!

  • I have just finished my last pessary too. :o I also had burning when urinating, which was caused by thrush entering the urethra. My urethral opening is slightly prolaspsed through child birth, so now it sits closer to my vaginal opening. I just used Canestan cream and rubbed it over the urethral opening every day while using the pessaries. I also get cloudy urine and some abdominal pain whenever I get thrush. They say you don't get pelvic pain with thrush but believe me you can! But the fact you may have blood in the urine suggests an infection in the kidneys(unless it's just menstrual blood like you thought) and that requires immediate medical intervention.

  • Just another thought, have you tried the oral medication if the cream causes allergy?
