"So," women might well retort at the latest report on paternity leave, "men are at last having to learn what we have experienced for years." And it's true. The finding by the Equality and Human Rights Commission study, that men fear to take their full two-week's paternity entitlement or to ask for flexible working for fear of harming their career prospects, is only what women have had to suffer ever since they entered the workforce.

I am breastfeeding and started to get terrible pain in the breasts after the end of the feeds. At first this was put down to cracked and infected nipples, and I was treated with Canesten cream and antibiotics. This did not help and I was told that I might have candida infection of the milk ducts. I was given a single dose of Diflucan, an antifungal drug. This did not help and I was given a longer course of Diflucan for a week. Is this likely to solve the problem?
