Hi everyone,

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!

Thank you

I know this may seem a silly question op but has your gp checked you for BV. It can have symptoms very similar. It doesn’t have the cottage cheese type discharge which is big thrush sign though.

Additionally have you be checked for diabetes? My gp did a glucose test when I couldn’t shift thrush but she thinks mine could be stress related.

Hey @orchinflower1, yeah I have been checked for BV but has always come back clear other than one time! Also been checked for diabetes and all fine there as well
