Canesten Thrush Pessary

Canesten Thrush Pessary

This is another convenient, single dose thrush treatment which works right at the site of the infection.

Contains Clotrimazole.

Canesten Thrush Pessary is a single application treatment for vaginal thrush.


How to use Canesten Thrush Pessary?

The pack contains a single pessary with applicator to treat the cause of vaginal thrush in one go. 

The pessary should be inserted as high as possible into the vagina with the help of the applicator, preferably before going to sleep at night for convenient and comfortable treatment.

The symptoms of thrush should disappear within three days of treatment.

Some of us, though, suffer from recurrent attacks of thrush. If that is also your case, you may consider trying Canesflor which helps prevent recurrences of thrush. Learn more about Canesflor here.


What does Canesten Thrush Pessary contain?

The active substance in Canesten Thrush Pessary is Clotrimazole, an antifungal agent which fights fungal infections such as thrush.


When should you see your doctor?

If you see no improvement after seven days, you should tell your doctor. Also, if you have had more than two thrush infections within six months, you should talk to your doctor about it.



You should only use this product if you have been previously diagnosed by your doctor as having thrush.

If you are pregnant or trying for a baby, tell your doctor or midwife before using Canesten Thrush Pessary. Medicines can affect the unborn baby. Your doctor may recommend that you use the pessary without the help of an applicator.

As with other pessaries, this product may reduce the effectiveness of rubber contraceptives, such as condoms or diaphragms.  That is why it is better that you use alternative precautions for at least five days after using Canesten Thrush Pessary.

You should not use tampons, intravaginal douches, spermicides or other vaginal products while using Canesten Thrush Pessary.

It’s better that you avoid vaginal intercourse while you have thrush and during the treatment because your partner may become infected.

You should not use this product during your period as it may be less effective.
