Sorry to post this at lunchtime!!

Bah humbug, I've gone and got thrush whilst on day 10 of stims. My clinic say I can take one Canesten pessary as a one off. I don't like the idea of taking it but I cannot put up with itching for weeks and surely if I take it tonight it will be out of my sytem by egg collection which is hopefully friday?

Is the the high oestrogen levels that trigger it?

My gp said it cannot get through the cervix when I was prescribed some last summer when ttc'ing naturally.

Thanks, you are a star as a lot of the ladies say

That's OK, I hae heard worse!

This is very sound advice, go ahead. If left the infection could potentially infect the embryo culture systems in the lab which is a bit of a disaster!

Possibly although thrush is of course very common in women of all ages.

Probably true but it does not matter anyway, the most important thing is to get rid of the infection.

Hope this helps the itching!!

Just a quickie, how could it affect the embryo culture when surely neither the eggs nor the embryos come into contact with the vagina, only "pass through" as I understand?

Thanks, Jane

Dear Janie,

Any infection in that area can contaminate instruments which in turn can get into the embryo culture.

Regards,

Peter
