Checked By

What is Canesten Pessary?

Canesten Pessary is a simple treatment for the cause of thrush that can relieve your symptoms within three days. If you’re suffering from pain, discomfort, and itching in your vagina caused by thrush, Canesten Pessary can provide fast relief.

 

What is thrush?

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.

 

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.

 

Can I use this product if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

You should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, so you can be sure that Canesten is the best choice for you at this time. If a medical professional tells you that you can use this product, they may give you alternative instructions, which you should follow carefully. For example, they may ask you to use this pessary without an applicator if you are pregnant.

 

Can I use this product if I’m taking other medication?

You should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you are taking any other medication, including those obtained without a prescription. Some medications can interact when used together, causing side effects or making your medication less effective. You should tell your doctor before using this product if you are taking sirolimus or tacrolimus, which are used to reduce immune system response and reduce the chances of rejection after an organ transplant.

 

Can I use Canesten Pessary if I’m using a condom during sex?

You should avoid having vaginal sex while you have thrush and while you are using this product, as your partner could also become infected. However, if you do choose to have sex, be aware that this product can reduce the effectiveness of rubber contraceptives like condoms or diaphragms. You should use an alternative method of contraception for at least 5 days after using this product.

 

How to use Canesten Pessary

Remove the applicator from the packaging and pull out the plunger until it stops. Remove the pessary from its foil packaging and insert into the applicator, fix into place with a slight twist. Insert the applicator as deep as is comfortable into your vagina, in the same way you would insert a tampon, then press the plunger until it stops. This inserts the Canesten Pessary into your vagina. Remove the applicator and dispose of it properly.

 

Why do I need to answer questions to buy this product?

You do not need a prescription for Canesten pessary, however, you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire by your Chemist-4-U pharmacist before we can take your order. This includes some simple questions that all pharmacies legally are required to ask before supplying this kind of product. This helps our pharmacy team to be sure that Canesten pessary is the best choice for you.

 

When should Canesten Pessary not be used?

Canesten Pessary should not be used by those under the age of 16 or those over the age of 60. Do not use Canesten Pessary if you are allergic to clotrimazole, other Canesten products, other vaginal antifungal products, or any of the other listed ingredients. Speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you’re unsure whether you have thrush, have had thrush more than twice in six months, or if you or your partner have ever had a sexually transmitted disease. Canesten Pessary is not suitable for use on scalp or nail infections. Speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Irregular vaginal bleeding
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Blood-stained vaginal discharge
  • Ulcers, blisters, or sores on the vagina or vulva
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Pain while urinating
  • Difficulty passing urine
  • Fever or chills
  • Feeling sick
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • A foul-smelling discharge from the vagina

 

Does this product have side effects?

As with all medicines, Canesten Pessary can have side effects although not everyone gets them. When you use this product, you may experience symptoms of an allergic reaction, including:

  • Rash
  • Swelling of the lips, throat, face, or tongue
  • Nausea
  • Weakness, feeling dizzy or feeling faint
