Thrush - not the garden bird!

Hi, please could someone answer a question because i've been on Google and now feeling confused. If you've got (vaginal) thrush, does it mean you have Candida? I have thrush and keep feeling nausous and I'm assuming it has spread. Does this make sense? TIA x

Hi there
Yes, candida is the medical name for it. It can also spread to your stomach, which it did with me so that's why you could be feeling sick.

If you haven't had it much before, then diflucan is one tablet that gets rid of it (it's pricey). Canistan sell a version too. If you've had a few times, then that stops working.

Or you can try the canistan cream as well but that never really works for me.
Good luckw with it, I know how miserable thrush is!
