Possible Thrush & pregnant
Last week I had a urinary infection and went on a course on antibiotics. Im am now 9 weeks pregnant.
Now this week my vagina is itchy, sore and red. Could this be thrush due to the antibiotics? I dont have any funny discharge at all. I have had thrush before but had the funny smelling discharge but not this time. My vagina is very dry.
If it is thrush could I get some cream over the counter at the pharmacy?

It sounds like thrush. You could get Canesten over the counter.
