Consistent Thrush
From when i was 17 (I am not 23) I have been suffering with thrush consistently. I have it most of the month, but it gets worse before my period. I have used all the creams, and my gynaecologist has changed my pill and put me on Sporonox for 6 months. The pill change did not help at all, but the Sporonox cleared it up for 6 months while i was taking it. Soon after I finished taking the Sporonox it returned. I cannot live with it anymore and am wondering what i can do to get rid of it once and for all. Please help.

You may have to try some lifestyle changes, like wearing cotton underwear, avoiding nylon stockings and tight jeans, bubble bath, etc. Also you shoud boil your underwear to get rid of resistant spores. You should also check your sugar,as diabetes can cause recurrent thrush.
