What is Thrush and What Causes It?

Vaginal thrush is a yeast infection which almost all women experience at some time in their lives. It happens when the natural balance in your vagina is disturbed, meaning the natural yeast or fungus in your vagina can grow and cause infection. This is what leads to thrush.

Thrush is caused when there is disruption in the balance between bacteria and yeasts which naturally live within the vagina. This leads to symptoms like vaginal itching, burning sensations, and a thick discharge.

It can be caused by a variety of factors like:

  • Medicines and antibiotics
  • The trauma of sexual activity
  • Tampons
  • Stress
  • Perfumed soap, shower gels, or bubble baths
  • Menstruation
  • Wearing tight clothing
  • Pregnancy

Preventing Thrush with Canesten Thrush Soft Gel Pessary:

  • Avoid tight, synthetic clothing
  • Avoid perfumed soaps, gels, bubble baths, vaginal deodorants and douches
  • Change tampons or pads regularly when on your period

How does Canesten Pessary work to treat thrush?

Canesten Pessary contains an active ingredient called clotrimazole, which is an antifungal agent. This means it works from the inside to combat the yeast which causes infections such as vaginal thrush, treating the infection at its source.

Can I use this product if I’m on my period?

You should not use this Canesten Pessary if you are on your period, as it can make this medication less effective. You should also avoid using tampons, douches, spermicides or other vaginal products while you are using this medication.
