I never had thrush before either, that is until I fell pregnant. I have had 3 kids now, and suffered with thrush through all three. It is the only time I get it. Other than the cream, there is no way you can really stop it from coming, but if you can, try eating yoghurt with acidophilus (live cultures) in it. This helps to ease it a bit. I hate yoghurt, but use to eat a small container each day throughout my pregnancies, just to ease the thrush symptoms. It helped me, so it might be worth a try. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and the birth of you baby.

I get thrush even when I'm not pregnant, but thought I had it a few months ago at about 12 weeks. I did two lots of treatment with Canesten which normally fixes it up quick smart, but it wouldn't budge this time. I then went to the doctor and he found that I actually had a type of dermatitis brought on by the change in hormones. After using some cortison cream for a week it got alot better, but i still have to apply it occasionally....
Anyway, I'm not saying that this is what you have but you may like to get it checked out again just in case.
I have never had any little spots of bleeding when I have had thrush, but have certainly experienced alot more pain and small spots of bleeding with this dermatitis.
Hope this helps more than hinders ?!!
All the best

Thanks for all the advise as i am willing give anything a go in the hope that it gets it better, only have 12 weeks to go so am definitely looking forward and scared to the birth and i guess if it is thrush then once baby is out well be able to treat it properly.
Good luck. if you do find anything that helps please post it as i am 5 1/2 weeks pregy with my second baby and expecting to suffer from it again.
