Itchy discharge and 12 weeks pregnant
I have had 2 thrush infections in the last 2 years (one when I was pregnant with no 1 and the other about 3 months ago). The last one was bad but cleared with Canestine.

I am now about 12 weeks pregnant with no 2. I have a itchy vagina but with very little discharge. Can this be thrush again? If so can I treat with Canestine again? What causes this and how do I prevent it from happening again as it is rather irritating!

It could be thrush and you can use Canesten. Have a look at the Top 5 questions for ways of preventing recurrent thrush.
