Do I have thrush or BV (bacterial vaginosis)?
If you’re not sure whether you have BV or thrush just from looking at lists of symptoms there are a couple of other things you can consider.
If you’re feeling sore, itchy, or experience a burning sensation, you probably have thrush rather than BV.
BV doesn’t typically cause any pain or irritation, whereas thrush is particularly noticeable because of those irritating symptoms.
If your vaginal discharge is greyish or watery you’re probably dealing with BV, but if it’s white and looks a bit like cottage cheese you’re dealing with thrush.
If you’re noticing a strong fishy smell, then you probably have BV, as thrush rarely causes a strong smell.
No matter what you’re dealing with, get yourself to a doctor for a formal diagnosis so you know that you’re getting the right treatment for your infection.
What are the symptoms of thrush?
Usually, when people think of thrush they think of vaginal thrush.
This is when thrush occurs inside and around the vagina, causing irritation and itching in your intimate area.
Thrush has some very distinct symptoms which can make it very easy to spot, the most common symptoms of vaginal thrush are:
- A white, cottage cheese-like discharge that doesn’t smell.
- Itching or irritation around your vagina.
- Swelling of your vaginal lips.
- Soreness around the entrance of your vagina.
- Soreness or stinging when you use the bathroom or during sex.
What is fluconazole thrush treatment?
Fluconazole is one of the most common treatments given for vaginal thrush and thrush that affects the penis, which are both caused by fungi called Candida.
Not only can a single treatment of fluconazole treat your thrush effectively, but it can be used by couples who pass the infection to each other when they have sex.
If you and your partner have picked up thrush and can’t seem to get rid of it, this could be the answer to finally shaking that annoying infection.
What causes vaginal thrush?
Yeast infections aren’t a sign of bad hygiene, and women are more likely to develop thrush if they’re pregnant, sexually active, taking antibiotics, have a weakened immune system or poorly managed diabetes.
The symptoms of vaginal thrush include itching and soreness in the vagina, discharge which is usually odourless but may resemble cottage cheese, and pain during sex or urination.
