Hello everyone, I have been fighting vaginal thrush for nearly 7 years. A few courses of Fluconazole 6 months each, didn’t work, all swabs confirm thrush BUT lab is not capable of confirming which candida it is etc. I also have suspision it could be lactobacillus.. basically I am going in circles and between fluconazole, pessaries.. soo soo fee up! My symptoms are itching and red/sore vagina, no discharge as such. I feel GP doesn’t want know what to do… Any advice? Thank you
repeated thrush: Hello everyone, I have been fighting... - BASHH
have you seen a gynaecology specialist?
hi, same situation! Have you tried boric acid pessaries?
I don’t know what age you are but have you thought of the possibility that your symptoms could be a low level of oestrogen. I thought I had thrush but in fact this was the problem. You can use a gel for it.
hello, I am 39, 2 kids (4,6). I asked my GP to give me pills as my symptoms always got worse around ovulation, now on pills, much worse, itchy all the time🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️I just want to cry as I feel my GP doesn’t know what to do (and not interested anymore, I have cronic thrush according to her). I am going to see a private gynecologists soon. I just feel I have some skin condition around vagina, but the strange thing is, all swabs have shown thrush but never ever in detail what type of candida, etc. I also read lactobacillus look same in lab test🤷♀️
i am same there saying thrush on my skin on bum. Hurts to sit. God knows what's happening to me. 1st they said vestibule vulvodynia on ovestin which burns
