Something not right down there

I had BV earlier this year. Had antibiotics and it cleared up. A month ago I noticed a slight smell again so had another course of antibiotics. 2 weeks ago I though it was coming back again so had to have a swab at the doctors. It's all come back clear. No infection or BV again. I bought some over the counter gel and it seemed to clear up.
But the last few days there's something not right. Just a slight smell, and thicker discharge, slight stinging. Could it be thrush?
Just feel unclean, keep washing which I'm sure is why I'm stinging, have even used a tampon to keep discharge in me!
Don't want to have sex as I'm embarrassed.

Yep, sound exactly like thrush. You can get a pill for it in the chemist and it clears it up in a day or two at most.

If I get thrust I get a heavy/dragging feeling. Do you have that?

It just doesn't feel quite right! Does thrush have a smell of any kind? I haven't got that awful fishy smell like BV but there is something slightly different to normal.
I'm stinging/burning today too. Perhaps I'll pop out to the chemist and get a tablet!

It doesn’t smell that I’ve noticed but it is thick creamy discharge that I had. (Sorry) 😳it started off with a stinging and then started burning terribly. It was awful as it took me a while to realise what it was at first but now I no what to look out for. I usually get it in pregnancy at least once through the 9 months. Yes please go to the chemist tomorrow as it will get a lot worse if left untreated, you could end up burning from front to back!😕

Also if you have a partner and have any reason to believe you had thrush when you slept with him, then I would advise you get him a pill as well. He could have it but show no symptoms but when the symptoms start to show, they are pretty sore and angry looking.😐

Certainly do not have sex embarressed or not. Thrush generally is odour less, you probably have a UTI and need to get checked out.
