recurrent thrush problem
If you have questions about sexually transmitted infections then this is the forum to talk to our experts about your concerns.
I had a 6 month course of pessaries for recurrent thrush, only to have it come back a month after finishing treatment. After waiting two weeks for a blood sugar result which was normal, and a swab result to confirm thrush, I have been given another 6 months of pessaries once a week. My doctor was reluctant to treat my husband as he has no symptoms. I used my first pessary 3 days ago and have no relief of symptoms yet. How long do I leave it before going back to the doctors? Am I best of going to a GUM clinic? I am using pessaries rather than oral tablets because I am trying for a baby. I am also taking acidophilus probiotic and garlic capsules in the hope that something works. I am quite worried that 6 months of treatment did not work. Thankyou for your help.
