Can cyclogest cause thrush like symptoms? Advice needed please!

Hi, yes contact Dr. My doc says thrush in pregnancy is very common and can be safely treated with Canesten. I am still using the Cyclogest front and back side. Not sure if it is because of the Cyclogest but got a sensation in the back which could be a haemoroid. Went to Boots and was give Healar which is wonderfully soothing and herbal. As soon as I feel something, out comes the Healar! Good luck, hope you feel contented and relaxed soon! Sounds off no?

where do i go next?

Hi Karen, If you can afford the level 2 tests, go for it. There is no need to have to experience a sixth mc, like I did. Maria is right, only a dr and the tests can tell you why you are have repeated mc's. If you need more info have a look at my diary...It will give you hope! L

6w2d

Hi Pheobe, It could still be early. One of my LO has always been a little bit behind compared to the other, but now it is the one that is moving the most which is a sign of a healthy baby. Very hard to wait and see what is going to happen. They do not develop all at exactly the same time. Big hugs, girly plus 2!!!

Zita West

Hey Jenny, Sorry not replied yet...was treated by Dr G at Fertility Academy, see my diary....for ups and downs. Had Immunology tx. If you can afford it, really recommend Zita West, we would have gone there if last tx had failed. Pretty pricey! L

Zita West

Hey, I did not have ICSI tx there but had acu tx. Thought the clinic was well set up and very peaceful. Attended a seminar by Dr George (can't remember) his surname and came across as very knowledgeable. Specialized in immuno tx. All the best!

LIT treatment

Yep, recognize what you are saying. Follow what Dr G tells you to do to the minute detail. EC and ET happen outside of the academy. Don't pay too much attention to what happens at reception. If you are unsure about anything, ask Dr G or us! Let us know how you are getting on, and know that there are so many ladies who had BFP's after first tx with Dr G. Stay positive!!

LIT treatment

How about 20 weeks pregnant with twins after 7 miscarriages? YES IT DOES WORK!! My LAD's finally went up after LIT so that was clear proof to me. Together with the steroid effects, the LIT was the worst so it is easy all the way after this!!!

Dr.Gorgy??

Hi Kylie, Well, I am carrying 2 Dr G babies and have friends who have also been succesful with him. Do you expect you have immunology issues? Try and summarize your tx's and test results before you go to see him because this what you can expect: - You will be surprized that the first visit is quite akward and a bit stressfull as he bombards you with questions. - Highly likely he will make you do a whole series of tests which are very expensive. - If you have tx with him, expect to pay a lot of m...

To stitch or not to stitch?.....cervical stitch

PLEASE HELP US!!! We did not go for the stitch as we met another doctor who said there is no right or wrong in deciding to go for it or not. There is a risk to any op. Risk of infection is 1-2 to 5% resulting in loosing the babies. But a 30% increase in chances that we avoid loosing them with the stitch So we decided to monitor every 10 days and continue the Cyclogest. At just over 17 weeks, all is going well cervix is 34mm and closed. Still the doctor is asking me for a decision. AAAAAARRGH. W...

Answers at last? More level 2 results

Hi PQ, Can't believe it, left my results and my book at work, so can't help you!! BUT your DQ alpha looks really good and if it is any reassurance having had immune tx from Dr Gorgy I am now getting really fat with 2 LO's. I have had 7 mcs.... So stay hopeful and keep fighting to get results and the right tx, don't let them tell you 'next time luck'. It is b7llsh*t. All the best, will try and read up asap X L

To stitch or not to stitch?.....cervical stitch

Sugar! Forgot to ask why it has to be done before 14 weeks. Assume that the babies are not too big yet to add any pressure. A friend of mine lost hers at 19 weeks as they all of sudden had a huge growth spurt. So, we decided to go for it, really hope I will not regret it....

To stitch or not to stitch?.....cervical stitch

Hey, A dilemma.... My ob is suggesting I have the stitch done before week 14. I have had many mcs but all before 6 weeks, due, what I believe, are my immunology issues not an incompetent cervix. Dr G's opinion is to continue to monitor and stitch if the cervix funnels or thins. There is a risk of mc or preterm birth as you bring in a foreign object in your environment. I understand both views. I have had good scans with a 'good looking' cervix of over 4 cm long. My mother had for all her pregnan...
