Thrush is a yeast infection that is common in women, and is that estimated ¾ of women will have thrush at some point in their lives. Thrush is caused when the natural yeast in the body, Candida albicans, grows in numbers which causes the symptoms associated with thrush. This increase in yeast can be because of hormonal changes caused by pregnancy, taking antibiotics that weaken the immune system, and using soaps. The symptoms of thrush include itching, redness, a white discharge, and soreness when urinating or having sex.
