    Exclamation Crinone build up???? Warning TMI

    Hi ladies,

    i did my first IVF and was given Crinone to use from just after ER. I have been having an aweful discharge that is *warning TMI* yellowish and almost cottage cheese like. I have asked my FS to give my something for thrush as i was convinced this must be the problem but did a google search today and found that this can happen when ladies have used Crinone, they call it a build up and recommend that you clean it out ( with your finger)

    I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and has any advice for me

    I had the same thing. Not the end of the world.

    I had the same thing too. I ended up asking my gynae to clean it out properly for me since I used it until 20 weeks and was worried about doing something to my cervix.

    Same thing for me too and I also thought it was thrush. It lasted until 6 weeks even though I stopped Crinone at 15dpo.

    I also had the same thing - It's so yucky!!! I thought there was something seriously wrong It also went a pinkish colour sometimes which was terrible and I had a panic attack! It's all good though because as horrible as it is taking it, it really does an amazing job
