Re: Did your Thrush go away on its own?

Sorry but no. I had it for 4 months with dd before I gave up and stopped pumping (then it went away on it's own). With DS I had it for 3 months and I tried gentian violet (both me and ds), grapefruit seed extract, yogurt, Nystatin, Monistat, and then the prescription that cost me $200+ (no insurance). It didn't go away until I stopped nursing. We both had it badly. I was changing breast pads and soothers at every feed, boiling and then washing them. It was a ton of work and a lot of pain. I haven't personally heard of anyone that has beaten it but the public health nurse had and she would know better than me. Sorry i can't be more positive but I really wanted to nurse for a lot longer than 3 months but I just couldn't do it.
