Happy Saturday all!
Ok, so for the past 4 or so months, I have been having thrush that keeps coming back. I know it's very common in women and it could just be one of those things, but I don't think this is on this case. I visited a walk in centre back in August after normal thrush cream wouldn't touch it, and didn't even have an examination and was perscribed a pessary and more cream. Things went away in a couple of days.
Then it came back again. I took the thrush tablet, cream, pessary, and even got my OH then to start using the cream and to take a pill. Things cleared up ok in time.
Last week I felt I had it again. I used the cream and had no joy, so I visited the doctors last night. No examination. My partner came with me and was told that thrush is not something that can be passed back and forth, and he would be showing symptoms of it if he had got it (which I'm sure is NOT the case). I have been perscribed Fluconazole to take 3 every days for 3 times, and then take it for once a week there after. I took it about this time last night and now I am starting to feel very very run down. My lower back is achy, my skin feels sore, I've got a headache, and generally feel as though I am coming down with something, feeling sick, as well as having the itchyist flippin fanny in the country. I am so done with all of this now. I've got to make an appointment now to have some swabs done with the nurse, and see what comes back of that. I just went to the loo and now have a slightly yellow thick discharge, I have no idea what is going on. I'm also going for a blood test this week to see hormone levels and also to see about the possiblity of being diabetic.
I know my mum and all the women on my side of the family have always suffered badly from thrush, I don't know if it is my pill that's causing a hormonal imbalance, if it is stress related as I've been through a nasty disaplinary and then ended up being made redundant, me and OH have had a pretty bad row this week which had us almost over (We are ok now thankfully).
Am I the only one? I don't think it is anything like an STI, as I'm 99.9% sure he wouldn't be unfaithful, and I certainly haven't been. I'm just feeling so rubbish about myself. I want to be having kinky sex on a saturday night with OH not sat on the sofa crying with my knuckles in my mouth to resist the urge to itch.
