Flatulence and Thrush
I have been suffering from severe recurrent thrush, and am really struggling to get rid of it. I also suffer from very bad flatulence. Could the two be connected. Both seem to be worse just before my period. Please can you also let me know what the best remedy is for thrush, as well as flatulence - I drink enos on a regular basis, but it does not seem to work for very long.

Hi Tilda
Yes it can be connected - you should actually get an antifungal treatment and use lactobacillus supplements on a regular basis. You can also ask your doctor to prescribe some Pancreoflat to help with digestion.
