Ever since i was about 17 (25 now) i've suffered with recurring thrush, I've been to doctors and had examinations and swabs and every kind of test for every kind of STI and infection and it always comes back with thrush.
even when their doesn't seem to be many visable symptoms.
somtimes it's very noticable but sometimes i think it's gone but then i'll have sex with fiance and immedietly get burning, spotting, swelling and redness.
I have tried everything out there..all to no avail, canasten creams and oral tablets do nothing, the pessaries make me bleed but dont help, creams burn, herbal remedies do nothing and ive already tried yogurt, diet changes, natural remedies and nothing has even helped the symptoms.
The doctors (ive been multiple times to different Drs) always prescribe me the same medicine, (the active ingredient in canasten) and they don't seem to take me seriously.
I'm at my wits end and do not know what to do, if the Drs wont help then who will?
Their doesnt seem to be a cycle to it, i don't use perfumes or soaps on the area and i dont wear jeans or tight clothing all the time. but again....no matter what i do nothing seems to work and im not sure why none of the medicines help. not to mention how expensive they are.
im not sure if anyone on here can help me but at this point in time any advice would be much appreciated. please is their something i havent tried? Thank you.
