Diflucan / fluconazole causes flare

Posted , 1 user is following.

33/f 10 plus year chronic urethral pain and burning most of the time (negative UTI screens) w trace blood in urine.  as well as chronic oral thrush (not vaginal). Symptom free 2-3 months until taking a single diflucan tablet for oral thrush.  A few months back I did 3 things that worked, not sure which one, or if all are responsible but wanted to share. completely cut coffee again,  started a high quality probiotic, and stopped using my saliva for any sex or activity related to my vagina. I was so surprised that these few simple things relieved my symptoms. Now looking back I’m pretty sure the oral thrush and using any saliva for sex was a huge trigger. I didn’t notice the correlation because I never got a vaginal yeast infection. But hope this will help someone. Candida could be present and not be noticed. Anyway after months of relief I was getting an oral thrush flair and took a diflucan and woke up in serious pain. I couldn’t figure out what I’d done differently to cause it & wouldn’t think in a million years that it could be the diflucan, but it was. I looked it up and some other women have experienced the same thing.
