Thrush twice in a month!(3 Posts)
Hi all, in my teens I used to suffer quite badly from Thrush (say age 17-19 years) over and over again. I was constantly treating it and going to the doctors but no explanation.. even when I had my first child (at 20) I was still suffering then it stopped!!
I haven’t had it in the best part of 7 or 8 years. I only know this because me and OH have been together for 7 years this week and cannot re-call having it since being with him. Been pretty healthy down there.
But now.. twice in one month. I’m in agony. How did I ever manage this when I was younger? I’ve treated with Canestan for the second time and seems much better already but why the random bout now? Is it worth a trip to the docs to rule anything out?
Ways on how to prevent it happening in the future too would be appreciated too.
Also, Oh has no symptoms so don’t think he passed it back to me. There’s not a chance we were having sex during this🔥
I used to get regular thrush, I visited the nurse at my gp. We covered lots of different angles and one thing I changed was underwear type. I used to wear thongs 5-6 days a week I started wearing more keys say granny pants and not suffered since
