Some women are just unlucky and get thrush alot no matter what the doctors give you. Some handy tips are avoiding bubble baths, reduce wearing pants and tight trousers lots of the time and even microwaving your knickers! sounds crazy but kills the bugs! Trush loves warm and wet conditions - bad news for us ladies! Trush can be passed on through sex, so it could be that a partner gives it back to you, and the cycle continues. A good way is to use the white tablets which you insert into you (not eat) and do that for three nights in a row. That usually blasts the beasts. You can also get external creams to make the itching lessen. Hope that's some use
i've got thrush and before the symptoms showed i had unprotected (except birth control) with my long term partner i know neither of us have an STI (as we've been checked during our relationship) how ever he has also got thrush but has red sports or dots on the shaft of his penis, is this part of the thrush?
thrush is from having sex, not from sti's me myself has had it, and its definoutely not nice, i think you should make an appointment with your gp to get some treatment try not to feel dirty and blame yourself as it is ver common in woman. also about your boyfriend have him checked just in case
I've had swollen, itchy vaginal area for just under a year now, it comes and goes and ive been using thrush cream which seems to clear it up but it comes back everytime i have sex? My boyfriend has thrush of the mouth once, then he got thrush on his penis. Its really horrible and sometimes it gets to the point that i cant bend down because it causes uncomfort! Please help! Thank you
Hi, I'm 24 years old. Having thrush regularly at least twice a year, I had a thrush a month ago, after taken a anti thrush pessary being prescribe by the doctor the thrush disappear about 2 weeks later. But now, my vagina is hitching again, no disturbing my life my hitching like an insect beat you. After trying having sexual relation with my partner, its was impossible, its was really hurting and my partner him had the penis sore too. Could you tell me what to do to enjoy again having intimate relation with him and stopping having the discomfort ?
Your boyfriend needs to get treated for thrush too. It is no good just treating yourself and him getting no treatment (even if he suffers from no symptoms) as every time you have sex you are just re-infecting yourself. This will not go away until he is treated.

I have recurring oral thrush that causes continuous burping and a thick fur on my tongue does anyone know why I keep getting it? There is lots of info regarding viginal thrush but non for oral thrush.
i have had thrush 4 about 5 months now is this right ive used the cream and tablets but it returns approx 5 days after y i am also sweating in groin area
Hi I too keep getting Oral Throat Thrush, this is linked with your immune system, try looking at foods thats boost your immune system, like turkey and blueberries. I have had this since Januray this year and all medicines and still i have this uncomfortable feeling, sore throat with the white fur on the tongue, i would recommend keep on at your doctors, there is plenty of information about this condition on the web, good luck! sally
im 26, ive always been careful to attend all my smear tests and i go to the STI clinic when i start new relationships. My STI results have always come back negative but last year my smear test returned abnormal so I had a colposcopy and they took biopsies and i am currently waiting for those results. Every single time i have had an examination i get told i have thrush, although i never have symptoms until 2 weeks after. I am usually prescribed the canesten pill and my gp says each time it will be cleared. My last smear was 2 months ago, i had thrush after and the usual canesten. I had no thrush symptoms at the time of my colposcopy which was 2 weeks ago but My Gyno said she could see a thick discharge around my cervix. I now have thrush again. She also said the reason my smears might be abnormal is possibly due to having thrush. Im following all doctors advice such as diet, clothing, not using soaps, only having showers and not douching etc. I only seem to have thrush symptoms (itching, discharge) AFTER an examination... is this common? or have i just had constant thrush for 2 years?
im 27 and ive had a problem with what i thought was thrush, but after using just about every thrush product under the sun i still seem to have a really thick white discharge i cant get rid of, sometimes its really paste like and my vagina is really dry. but it doesnt itch, or smell. when i had the doctor check it she said its just thrush or it may just be the way i am. i have lived with this for well over a year now and its so embarrassing to even consider having a relationship with anyone. i really want this sorted so could there be something the doctor has missed?
I had the same problem. Its probably a bacterial problem so use hydrocortisone cream with a low percentage (because its on a sensitive body part) should clear up after a few days
I have a pain in my left lower rib and I've had it for about 2 weeks so I went to the doctors who did a vaginal test (god knows why) so I went along with it and to go on with I was treated for thrush (yet the only symptom I had was an off discharge and the pain was in my rib) anyway i used the treatment and now the cream is making me feel like I have thrush, my results came back negative for sti's and thrush and a urine infection, yet my rib is still hurting, what could be going on? I'm confused
How do I get rid of thrush as I constantly suffer from it I get it every month maybe every 2 month and I hav gotten it since I concived my daught that is now 18 months old so could Yous help me please on this acount and Thanx.
i got vaginal thrush 5 months ago, i left it a few days before getting cream for it - after applying the cream the thrush went away within a few days. however, since i got thrush i find it very difficult to have sex, it feels like sand paper in my vagina and it is very very painful please help.
