Recurring thursh

I have recently had a new partner that I have been having unprotected sex with but I have been getting thursh quite frequently. I will be getting tested for stds but is there a reason why I have been getting thursh so often after having sex with him also he does have good hygiene.

Thrush or candida has absolutely nothing to do with hygiene. When you say you "keep getting thrush " could you describe your symptoms ?

Just external itching and sometimes thick discharge that doesn’t smell

Dear CeeCee,

In addition to describing your symptoms, can you also tell us if you've noticed a particular pattern to your "thrush"; e.g. is it related to your periods (cyclical) or after sex, etc?

Hi I think after sex sometimes my vagina will have small rips when I am having sex due to my vagina no bring very lubricated

OK, thank you. Sounds like thrush, but if possible try to get this confirmed with a vaginal swab taken in a sexual health or family planning clinic when you attend for an STD screen, once restrictions are lifted.

Hi I did that today

Do you have any symptoms like discharge etc? As it might be trichomoniasis

Yes I have discharge and itching but the discharge is not as thick as thursh normally would be it is kind of runny

Sometimes guys can get thrush and they need to take a fluconzoke and yes if he doesn’t have good hygiene it can affect u as his sweat and buildup can imbalance ur vagina.

He needs to put some clotrimizole cream and take a thrush antibiotic. Don’t have sex for a few days when u get treated, if his hygiene is that bad I would talk to him about it.

And if ur not lubricated use lube or make sure u do things before.(fore play)
