Recurring thrush(6 Posts)
I have been struggling with thrush since Feb 2018 shortly after losing my virginity, after that, I had thrush from Feb - June 2018. I then went on a 6-month course of fluconazole and the thrush stayed away till June 2019. However, last month it returned really badly and took ages to clear up, I am really scared that my old problem has returned. I do everything advised - probiotics, cotton underwear, no soaps, etc. I am now trying to do the candida diet but due to work commitments won't be able to do it for much longer. I am only 21 and feel like this is going to control my life, its already causing strain on my relationship and social life. I know I'm not a mum but I thought you ladies may be able to help. I am DESPERATE!
Are you having sex regularly? Your partner may be the culprit.

Have you done the live yogurt thing? You may need to use yogurt on a regular basis to keep the balance right.
In my case it was a sign of diabetes. Before I was diagnosed it was recurrent. However since diagnosis and on my medication and it's disappeared.
Hi everyone, thanks for the quick replies! I am having sex regularly, however my partner always gets symptoms too so it's very easy to know when to treat us both. I've just started some extra strong probiotics so hope that helps and have had blood tests for diabetes last year but did another one last week to just rule that out for sure.
