Re: Vaginal Problems

Dear pinklily


Thanks for posting.


Infections are a common side effect of EC, which means that the risk of infection may range from one in ten people to one in a hundred people.  This relates to all infections including yeast infections such as thrush.


We are unable to find information relating to the specific occurrence of thrush infections. If you have symptoms of thrush, do let your specialist team know as you may require additional treatment.


Details of our support services may be of interest and do call our free, confidential Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. The number is 0808 800 6000.


Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.  


Best wishes
