Yaagh! It’s so horrid. The worst bit is, he said this bout may clear up but being pregnant means I’ll be prone to it throughout. Something to do with having a ‘sugary vagina’ during pregnancy!! Why oh why?
Actually, maybe the worst bit was the examination. I was hoping he’d just take my symptoms, give me canestan cream and send me away. Oh no. I had an examination, the nurse had to shine a head torch up there and swabs have been taken as well. I guess it’s better to be safe rather than sorry.
Then off to the pharmacy where I had an internal cream to use over night which I did (*shudder*) and then an external cream which I was expecting to be canesten as well, but isn’t. It’s called Dakacort cream and as I’ve not used it before, I carefully read the instruction leaflet with it, to see it’s not really suitable during pregnancy?!!!
So I’ve not yet applied any, it seems to be more of a hydracortisone for athletes foot than anything else, so I want to check it’s correct first. Is that a bit particular of me? Maybe, but for the best I think. I’m probably worrying over nothing but I’d rather check it out than worry unnecessarily.
Seriously, I was such a naive girl, thinking that labour was the only uncomfortable part of pregnancy! I never dreamed pregnancy could be uncomfortable too!! And I think I’m probably getting it pretty easy compared to some others! Imagine my moaning if it were worse!!! =D Ha ha!!!
