Thrush applicator
I inserted an aplicator with cream (Caneston) into my vagina as far as it would go (as the instructions stated). However I felt like there was a "breakthrough", almost like a "pop" high up and now I am worried that I might have damaged something. Could I have pushed it too far up my vagina.

It is unlikely that you have caused any damage. Applicators are designed to be inserted high into the vagina. Unless you have any pain or bleeding, there should not be cause for concern.
