Sorry, this is going to be information overshare. I've never had thrush before so don't know the symptoms. Itchy labia, a lot more discharge than normal, mostly white but noticed a tinge of greeny yellow today, slight burning when I pee.

I slept with "D"P on Saturday (drunkenly) for the first time since I found out that he has been messaging other women arranging to meet for sex. Swears he never went through with the meetings, so agreed to try again. Symptoms started on Monday morning.

Please tell me it's just thrush and nothing more sinister...? sad I will be going to get tested regardless but don't know how long that will take due to the restrictions in place.

Poor you flowers get some thrush treatment, see if it helps.

Get the test pronto. Greenish discharge is not typical of Thrush. Oh and get rid of "D" P too. Just say that the sex isn't doing it for you.

Can you get a postal test? They can be quite quick. Let’s hope it’s thrush but it’s the discharge colour that would have me alarmed for something more

I've had thrush throughout my adult life and never had a "greenish tinge" confused Get tested pronto!

Buy some OTC thrush medication and also Google sexual.health in your area, lots of places will send you a self test kit in the post. If it gets any worse call the doctors as well they might prescribe some antibiotics just in case

Could be bacterial vaginosis - it’s like a thrush but caused by another resident microbe, so not an STD.
Boots can sell you both thrush and BV treatments without prescription.

Given the timing it’s unlikely an STD. But still - who needs to wonder.
In your place - I’d demand he produced a clean STD test. Just to be sure.

Definitely get tested. Superdrug have tests that you can order online.

Itching sounds like thrush but the burning doesn't. Ring GP or local sexual health clinic as I think this would be deemed as essential care and you'll be seen pretty quick.

Your partner has been messaging other women to meet up for sex and then suddenly you get STD symptoms?

What a coincidence.

LightDrizzle Thu 04-Jun-20 15:07:35

Sounds more like an STD. If the symptoms disappear still get tested and treated if indicated as some STDs are not that symptomatic but lead to pelvic inflammatory disease which can lead to other problems.
No one will bat an eyelid at the clinic.
DD1 has been both on her own account and as moral support for friends.

I suffer from recurring thrush linked to my menstrual cycle, it never has a greenish tinge. Could be BV like another poster said but I would err on the side of caution and get it checked out. It will also put your mind at ease. thanks

gracex4 Thu 04-Jun-20 15:26:54

Sorry OP it could be thrush or bv we've all got our opinions but even the fact that your debating it being an Sti u need to get rid of him hun xx

BreakingTheChain Thu 04-Jun-20 15:33:18

It is almost certainly an STI, with all those symptoms, I'm sorry. Don't delay getting checked out. With swift treatment you should make a full recovery.

What a bastard your ex is. I hope his nob falls off.

Foxesandcrosses Thu 04-Jun-20 15:33:55

Hello,

Book to see your GP and they can test you or go to your local STD clinic, that is what they are there for.
You are no doubt feeling fragile due to finding out your partner is a cheat. Good luck

tomhardyfan Thu 04-Jun-20 15:36:57

I agree speak with your gp he will get you sorted

The most common cause of green vaginal discharge is a sexually transmitted infection known as trichomoniasis. The discharge often has a foul odour and is typically more yellowish-green than pure green.

Get rid of "D"P. And get treatment. Fast. It's not thrush.

Crystalspider Thu 04-Jun-20 15:45:52

You maybe able to get a free STD check by post, the NHS/local council supply them free of charge, check your area.
It can take two weeks for STD symptoms to show though.

Sorry but your DP sounds awful.

2bazookas Thu 04-Jun-20 15:49:55

Sorry, but it sounds unlike thrush and more like an STI. Read more at

www.nhs.uk/conditions/sexually-transmitted-infections-stis/

Don't mess about with OTC thrush treatments, you need to get a proper diagnosis and start treatment.

So should your partner and all the other women he's been screwing.

rvby Thu 04-Jun-20 15:54:02

Book in for tests. In meantime, Boots for thrush and bacterial vaginosis tests/treatments. It could be BV but could just as easily be something sexually transmitted e.g. trichomoniasis. The greenish tinge is a sign of infection, most likely. Thrush isnt an infection so you dont see that sort of thing, I doubt its thrush but I'm not a dr.

Sorry op. You'll need to be properly screened. Not sure it's a good idea to have sex with your partner anymore, if you do, use a condom. Xx

EstrellaPequena Thu 04-Jun-20 15:58:08

Another saying it sounds more like BV or an STI unfortunately. Docs/Boots pronto.

PixelatedLunchbox Thu 04-Jun-20 16:30:03

BV has clear watery discharge. Not green.

TirisfalPumpkin Thu 04-Jun-20 16:35:35

Lot of symptom overlap between STI and non STI vulval health issues. A new STI is unlikely to have come on that quickly. You will worry about it if don’t get checked out, so get a test and then you’ll be an informed position.

Sorry he has shown you such disrespect in seeking out other partners. What a shit. Take care of yourself.

Alfiemoon1 Thu 04-Jun-20 16:39:30

Get yourself booked in for a test or order one online sorry you are going through this

CrazyToast Thu 04-Jun-20 16:42:37

£6.99 Asda you can get a Canestan test which will indicate if it is bacterial needing antibiotics (BV, Trichomoniasis) or thrush-type. It wont rule out STIs but at least you would know something a bit more. Seems a bit quick for STI symptoms to pop up, you have to wait 2 weeks to test for Gonhorrea/Chlmydia.
